Yes I know wheat is obviously not native to Vietnam. Bread was virtually unknown in SEA until colonial times unlike other parts of Asia, but I guess Banh Mi does have that distinctive taste and texture.

Well, I like the country of Vietnam, and showing plenty of interest for this topic, but the cuisine is not my favorite in Asia, even if it at least makes my top 10 for favorite international cuisines.

I believe European countries such as France, UK, Germany, and maybe also Netherlands, Belgium, Spain, Denmark, Norway, Sweden are becoming easy for Asians integrating and assimilating well into those European countries.

If I was of Asian heritage, I would give those countries a try for visiting and living there. I told you in an email I rather be of Asian heritage or somewhere else in Europe for my original heritage.

In the earlier post, I showed a list of some very prominent European Asians having a good life in Europe: A French Korean economic minister in present French government: Fleur Pellerin - Wikipédia A French Vietnamese actress and senior marketing manager: Linh Dan Pham - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia A Vietnamese German politician becoming the federal minister of Economics and Technology in Germany: Philipp Rösler - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia The current South Korean president even briefly studied in University of Grenoble in France in the 1970s!: Park Geun-hye - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
