In terms of flavour, Vietnamese cuisine is among the best in the world, if not the best. It is therefore hardly surprising that Vietnamese restaurants are held with such high regard in almost every European metropolis. There have been countless attempts to explain the mysteries behind that country's exquisite gastronomy, as Vietnamese cuisine can quickly become quite addictive. One version is associated with the Vietnam War. Within the space of three years (1965-1968), the weight of the bombs dropped in Vietnam and Laos was more than twice that of all the bombs that were used during the entire Second World War. Practically everything was destroyed, even the rice paddies. To survive, the locals learnt to eat anything that was edible, and to give it flavour. It turns out that snakes can be made to taste very similar to chicken...
Banyan is yet another fine example of outstanding Vietnamese cuisine. Having opened its doors relatively recently, the small restaurant has, within a short time, gained "must-visit" status. The clientele is no less splendidly colourful than the flavours in your dish. In a way, Banyan can be described as Vietnamese haute cuisine, as it is unlikely that you will enjoy such an incredibly tasty meal in many places in Vietnam. The interior embodies understated Asian chic, stirring up memory scenes from Hanoi. Everything here is worth tasting, including the pho soup, duck salad with mango strips, curry, and vegetarian spring rolls. Only, before you roll up your sleeves for a culinary feast, don't overestimate your capabilities. Since Munich is in Bavaria, and since Bavarians are known to eat a lot, the portions here are very large.
