Bun Cha

I love Vietnamese food. Last month, I had the chance to go back to Vietnam and as an avid eater, I tried to eat as much as I could. There’s nothing I didn’t like. Everything was wow just like the first time I’ve been here and tasted their food.

For this post, let’s have bun cha…

Bun cha is said to have originated in Hanoi. It’s basically rice noodles, grilled pork in cold broth and herbs. So in a small bowl, you just have to mixed them all together then add some garlic, chili and lime. Most places include fried spring rolls when they serve bun cha and it perfectly complements the meal.

I noticed that bun cha is mostly served for lunch but I can eat it any time of the day. 🙂

The best place, for me, is the one in Hang Manh.

Yes, there are tables on the sidewalk, and that’s normal. 🙂

About Yesterday

My colleague and I were starving since around lunch yesterday and so each of us had a sandwich but still ended up eating in a Thai Restaurant after work.

The place is just a 5-minute walk from the office and is just a small space with four tables that can sit four people. Luckily yesterday, the restaurant wasn’t busy.

It wasn’t our first time to dine here so it was easy for us to choose what to order.

We ordered tom yam soup with shrimps, chicken satay with peanut sauce (of course!) and stir-fried shrimps with basil and chili…

We also had seafood fried rice and shrimp pad thai…

We had a very satisfying meal. Generous servings and very reasonable prices. I can happily recommend it. 🙂

Happy Thursday, homo sapiens!
