As in many countries in Asian, people tend to eat “family style”, sharing dishes. Each gets a plate or bowl with rice, then shares with everyone else the bowls of food set in the middle of table. If you are eating with a Vietnamese family expect to see little in the way of meat unless the family is quite wealthy.
