HO CHI MINH CITY | Bún thịt nướng is a popular Southern Vietnamese noodle and pork dish, similar, but different, to bún chả from the North.
It consists of a bowl of cold rice-vermicelli noodles topped with grilled pork, nem nướng̣ (grilled garlic pork sausage), chả giò (spring rolls), fresh herbs and salad, and giá (bean sprouts). It’s served with nước mam fish sauce (nước chấm) either in the bowl or on the side, and topped with roasted peanuts, pickled carrots and radish.
It’s light and delicious, and one of the best versions in Ho Chi Minh City can be found at Bún Thịt Nướng Chị Tuyền. A portable cart doing a roaring take away trade can be seen from the street. Walk behind the cart to find a small, narrow room with an open kitchen, a few tables, and stools if you want to dine in.
I highly recommend it – it was one of the best meals that I enjoyed on my most recent visit to Vietnam.
