Vietnamský náčelník – the best Pho in Prague

Have you ever visited SAPA Vietnamese market? If yes, then you may have come across this restaurant, which is named “Vietnamský náčelník”. As the name slightly suggests, their cuisine mostly consists of Vietnamese food (more information about Vietnamese cuisine below). Although the large interior may not be so decorated, the furniture inside still gives off a fresh summer day vibe. Because of the good location in the center of SAPA and its delicious food, the restaurant is usually filled with customers during eating hours.

Because I often have to conduct business in SAPA, without noticing it I became their regular customer. I believe that “Vietnamský náčelník” restaurant ranks as one of the best, if not the best, restaurants in SAPA. The reason is simple really, the personnel, the prices, the food, the overall atmosphere is exceptional. You don’t have to pay hefty prices for quality Vietnamese meals, and you get to enjoy them in a pretty comfortable environment. Another pro would be the fact, that waiters/waitresses are young Vietnamese students, who know Czech, English and Vietnamese language, therefore ordering a food is also quite easy.

Before you visit the restaurant, first take a look at the menu of Vietnamský náčelník.

Vietnamese cuisine, as a Southeast Asian cuisine, shares a lot of similarities with other East Asian cuisines. The most standing out signature points would be the usage of chopsticks, the variety of tastes due to the usage of herbs and seasoning and rice as a bread and butter side dish.

Vietnamese food is usually non-fried and almost every meal consists of at least a bit of vegetable. Count in rice or rice noodles as a side dish and you have a fairly healthy cuisine. Because of the ingredients, which consist mainly of vegetables, rice, eggs and occasionally meat, Vietnamese food is considered to be light and easy to digest.

As for the tastes, the food is usually not salty but rather it’s on the sweet or spicy side. When it comes to spiciness, it’s usually up to you whether you wish to have it spicy or non-spicy because the level of spiciness can always be adjusted by you. The food can mostly be served both ways, the spicy or non-spicy way and it would still taste delicious.  As for the stamp point food, it would be bún chả (noodles with grilled meat), phở gà (noodle soup with chicken meat), spring rolls (rolls filled with vegetables, noodles, eggs, meat and other ingredients) and surely many others.
