Just thought this was a little odd. I mean, I understand where the French influence (i.e. baguette and coffee) came from – and to quote Wikipedia again, Vietnam was colonized by the French in the mid-19th century. Efforts to resist the French eventually led to their expulsion from the country in the mid-20th century, leaving a nation divided politically into two countries. But vodka? I don’t think the Soviet ever controlled the country right? The booze must’ve came with Soviet AK’s during the Vietnam War.
Anyway … didn’t mean to bring up bad memories … but let us not forget 🙂
Back to food.
