Nam Giao, Ho Chi Minh City…Banh Beo and Bun Bo Hue that hits the spot

I used to believe that pho was the only authentic Vietnamese food. A friend brought me to Nam Giao to taste what I’ve been missing  – the ancient capital Hue cuisine & let me tell you.. I became an instant fan.

I love the Banh beo tom tuoi  which was steamed rice flour cake with fresh ground shrimp. Bun bo hue (Hue spicy beef noodle soup) – the best thing I had and it hit the spot. Don’t get intimidated by the description. It was not spicy what so ever!

The Va tron (fig salad) was disappointing for me. The Hen xao xue banh tran (saute baby clams over baked rice pepper) and Bunh canh cua (shrimp, crabmeat, sliced pork with special rice noodle soup) were alright, nothing really special about them

This is the first time I’ve ever had hue style BBH and banh Beo and I absolutely love it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  This is the true truth as I say it as it is…
