homemade

Been doing a lot of cooking at home lately. Just trying to save $ from eating out and eating less processed foods. I forget how relaxing and rewarding it is for me.

{eat} Bún bò Huế

You might not realize this but inside this little no name food establishment they serve a mighty mean bowl of noodle soup called Bún bò Huế.IMG_9983
This is not your average pho. This bowl of Bún bò Huế (pictured above) has everything (beef brisket, crab meatballs, pigs blood cubes and tendon. I omitted the pork knuckle). Plus a lot of fresh herbs & spices to add for your own taste. Bún (noodle) bò (beef) may say beef noodles of Huế but it’s not all about the beef it’s about the cooking style of Huế. The broth is simmered with a mix of beef & mostly pork bones into a very rich & complex soup. The delicate & delicious meatballs are made from fresh crabmeat, no imitation here.

fresh crabmeat meatballs!

It was sooo good that we all had a second bowl. The lady of the shop was so proud of her food, her mother wanted me to take photos of her and her shop so that more people can come and enjoy her bún bò Huế, if you can find it. But I’m sure there’s plenty more good authentic bún bò Huế in the city of Huế, Vietnam.
