Food site TasteAtlas has selected the 100 best dishes in the world in 2022 and topped by kare – a Japanese curry. Following are Brazilian picanha steaks, Amêijoas à Bulhão Pato (Portugal) and two dumplings from China. However, no Vietnamese dishes appear in this top 100.

The Asians Never Die account re-posted the results of the winning dish and received more than 22,000 likes from the online community. However, in the comments section, not many people really care about kare. Most of the comments criticized the ranking for being unfair when it lacked typical Asian dishes, especially pho.

“I’m Japanese but I can’t believe it. This list does not mention pho, kimchi, tom yum soup…”, account go_go_goodlife commented.

Ayden Cha, a Korean living in the US, said: “No pho? I don’t appreciate this list”.

Many similar comments were made about the lack of traditional Vietnamese pho. Some even commented that the person who made this list lacked too much culinary knowledge and chose mainly dishes suitable for Westerners.

Pho is a famous dish in Vietnam and has appeared many times on the world-famous delicacies voted by reputable channels. In fact, in October, TasteAtlas also entered the name of pho in the list of 100 most delicious and famous dishes in the world. However, the lack of pho in the list of 100 most delicious traditional dishes in the world makes it difficult for many people to accept.
