A Vietnamese culinary month was launched at the Lotte Seoul Hotel in the South Korean capital of Seoul on August 24, in a cooperative activity involving the Vietnamese Embassy in South Korea and the hotel, with sponsorship from Vietnam’s national flag carrier, Vietnam Airlines.

Entitled “Hello Vietnam”, the event is a part of programs to celebrate the 25th anniversary of bilateral diplomatic relations between Vietnam and South Korea (December 22, 1992 - December 22, 2017).

At the launch ceremony, Vietnamese Ambassador to South Korea, H.E. Nguyen Vu Tu, said that relations between the two countries are thriving in every field, from politics and economics to culture, of which this event provides ample evidence. 

Traditional Vietnamese food cooked by Vietnamese chefs, such as spring rolls, pho (Vietnamese noodle soup), bun cha (grilled pork with noodles), and nem cuon (fresh spring rolls) will be introduced to South Korean and international friends to help them gain a better understanding and experience the beauty and uniqueness of Vietnamese cuisine. Cuisine is one of the key parts of any culture, so this is a great chance to introduce Vietnamese culture in South Korea, Ambassador Tu said.

The Lotte Seoul Hotel appreciated the Vietnamese Embassy’s support in holding the event, pledging to continue working to tighten Vietnam-South Korea relations, especially in culture and people-to-people exchanges. 

Many visitors expressed their pleasure at watching the preparation of dishes, as Vietnamese cooking is elegant and unique rather than sophisticated, but still delivers delicious and healthy food and reflects part of a culture they wish to soon discover and experience.
