In Vietnam, water spinach rau muong is a common ingredient and garnish in Vietnamese cuisine and was once served as a staple vegetable of the poor.

In the South, the water spinach is julienned into thin strips and eaten with many kinds of noodles. It is also commonly cooked in a sour soup (canh chua), with tomatoes, other vegetables, and some kind of protein.
