Bún Riêu-Canh Bún 66, District 3

HO CHI MINH CITY | Bún riêu is a Vietnamese dish I first tried in Melbourne. It immediately became a favourite of mine, so you bet I made it my mission to hunt down a great version in Ho Chi Minh City.

It’s a traditional Vietnamese vermicelli noodle soup, and there are a few variations around. The version at Bún Riêu-Canh Bún 66 is bún riêu ốc, ồc being snails. Joining the snails are tamarind paste, fried tofu, rice vinegar, annatto seeds (hạt điều màu), huyết (congealed pig’s blood cubes), split water spinach stems, shredded banana flower, rau kinh giới, spearmint, perilla, bean sprouts, and crab cakes. Combined with vermicelli noodles in a fresh, sour, tomato and crab broth, it’s a delight.

If you’re thirsty, grab yourself a cup of iced sugar cane drink. The staff here freshly cold press the sugar cane to order.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
