Home to the Empire State Building, Times Square and so much more, New York has more than just tourist sights to offer. There are over 10,000 restaurants to choose from with an extensive range of cuisine from Chinatown, Little Italy and Greenwich Village in Lower Manhattan to the indoor urban food court of the Chelsea Market. There is something for everyone accommodating any size budget.

Foodies though that love Asian food should make their way to Hue, Vietnam. Lying in the middle of the country between Perfume River and South China sea this area is full of mouthwatering seafood. Here they offer crispy Banh Khoai, literally translating to ‘happy pancake’, is rice flour crepe stuffed with shrimp and pork belly. They are also known for their soups such as their spicy beef soup, Bun Bo Hue soup or the Hu Tieu soup which is glass noodles with pork and seafood.
