"Vietnamese food is very popular in Bangkok for several reasons. Meals often come with fresh vegetables, making it a healthy choice and the seasoning is moderate, not too spicy, so it can be eaten and enjoyed at any time.Vietnamese-inspired dishes that are popular in Thailand include naem nueang, khao kriab pak maw, goong phan oy, moo yang kap bai chapu and kuay jap yuan.But it took a long time for people in Bangkok to get to know these dishes, and their road to popularity has not been smooth.This is not to say that Vietnamese food is a recent discovery in Thailand. The taco-shaped khanom bueang yuan, fresh and fried spring rolls, and the stuffed, steamed sheets of rice flour batter called khao kriab pak maw have been popular for over a century.During the early years of the Ratanakosin period, many Vietnamese came to Thailand as refugees. During the reign of King Rama III, royal permission was given for the Vietnamese, or yuan, as they were called in Thai, to form a community in the Samsen Road area. This Vietnamese neighbourhood became known as Ban Yuan Samsen, and had the St Francis Xavier church at its centre."cont'dhttp://www.bangkokpost.com/food/cuisine/227618/vietnam-s-hol...
