Lunching in Hanoi: It’s Bun Cha Time!

24 11 2015

Bun Cha” is a Vietnamese dish said to have originated in Hanoi for which I had no prior knowledge from my previous trip to the city or from visiting Vietnamese restaurants in general.  Out of several eateries outside the wholesale market, I found my perfect bun cha stall.

My bowl of bun cha. Sweeter than one would expect and it’s cold (i.e. not warm) broth.

LOVE love love Bun Cha. So glad you got to try it out there. I absolutely adored it when I was in Hanoi. I have written a post about it which you might want to read here http://chilliandmint.com/2013/06/21/bun-cha-vietnams-culinary-jewel/ Go check out Hoi An too if you are still in Vietnam. I have spoken about it too on my blog so go and have a look. best Torie

Thank you for your comment, Torie. I wish I could have tried several places for the same dish but my time was limited so this was the only time I got to taste it. I will check out your page later. Thanks!!
