It fully conveys all the rich layers of natural flavors, while balancing the nutritional value for the body.

Northern cuisine is marked by its sweet and sophisticated taste in processing. Central cuisine is characterized by a spicy, rich taste with vibrant and eye-catching colors. Southern cuisine brings a sense of sweetness and spiciness to the rustic dishes of the river region.
