Vietnamese Bun Cha, Pho in Hanoi

November 6, 2011 § Leave a comment

The last of our Hanoi eats.

Kayo is really happy about the chicken pho at Cafe Mai Anh. I was honestly pretty skeptical when I saw this place, which Kayo’s guidebook recommended, but this pho was miles ahead of anything I’ve had in New York.

We paid about $1 for some tasty, satisfying street food (spring roles, pork belly, morning glory greens, etc).

On our last day we had bun cha at 1 Hang Manh Street. This was my first time eating bun cha, so I kind of peeped around to see how all the Vietnamese people were doing it. Basically you put all the things together and dip them in one of the broths. I really wanted to try banh cuon, bun bo nam bo, and real Vietnamese banh mi, but sadly we didn’t have enough time (or room in our stomachs). All the more reason to return!

Here is my favorite lady in the world making spring rolls.
