Bún bò Huế (Hue Beef Noodle Soup) is one of the best and most popular soup in Hue, Vietnam: a fiery broth of long-simmered beef bones, suffused with lemongrass and stained red from chiles, ladled over a bowlful of umami: paper-thin strips of beef, crab-and-pork meatballs, pig’s trotters, and huyet—quivering cubes of congealed pig’s blood. (These are way, way better than they sound.) The noodles are thicker and round, different from the flat rice noodles in pho, and is traditionally served in a beef and pork broth. Served with boiled beef shank, chunks of oxtail and pig knuckles and blood cakes and best enjoyed with a bunch of fresh toppings like lime wedges, cilantro sprigs, diced green onions, raw onions, sliced banana blossoms, red cabbage, mint and basil.
Spicy, sour and salty and sweet that makes this dish so savory and delicious. Some enjoy it by mixing in some shrimp sauce, but the smell is a bit pungent for my taste.
Bánh bèo (water fern cake) is a variety of small steamed rice cake in Vietnamese cuisine. It is white in color and typically features a dimple in the center, which is filled with savory ingredients including chopped, dried or fresh shrimp, scallions, mung bean paste, crispy fried shallots, fish sauce, rice vinegar, and oil. It is considered most typical of the cuisine of Huế, the ancient royal capital located in the center of Vietnam.
Banh Khoai (a type of stuffed crepe, accompanied by peanut sauce) which literally means “delicious cake”. The crispy pancakes are traditionally filled with pork, shrimp and sprouts serve with fresh greens and herbs and fermented soy bean peanut sauce
Another specialty of Hue is also the Com Hen and Bun Hen which you can choose from either rice or vermicelli noodles with clams. It is the most unique and symbolic food of Hue cuisine
