Bún bò Huế > Pho. Everytime.
The very underrated Vietnamese noodle soup, Bún bò Huế, is a broth cooked with beef shanks or oxtails and lemongrass and then fermented shrimp paste. Spicy Chili Oil is used to finish it off, giving it the traditional deep red color. It also uses a thicker rice noodle than Pho. It is topped with cilantro leaves, green scallions, and wedges of lime. It comes with sliced beef slices, Cha Lua (Vietnamese sausage) and even coagulated pig blood cubes, which is not in this bowl because that is disgusting to me. You're welcome for this entertaining but yet informative brief history lesson of Asian Soup Noodles. Pho and Ramen are not only ones.
I hated this soup when I was a kid. I also thought girls had cooties and weird but look how much of a ladies man I am today. (Kidding, sadly) Thanks Pops for sharing! - 11 hours ago
