Bun Cha of Hanoi

Bun Cha is one of the most popular street cuisines in Vietnam and is considered one of the Hanoi's emblematic courses. There are two types of pork, a sizzling hot grill, a tangy fish sauce dip, and a plethora of fresh vegetables and noodles on the menu.

Bun Cha begins with marinated pig belly and pork patties that are laid over hot coals and grilled to perfection. To give the meat a slight astringency, a good Bun Cha vendor will cook it with a little char on it. When the beef is cooked, it is served in a bowl with pickled vegetables like carrots, daikon radish, and/or onions. A fish sauce-based soup is ladled on top of the still-smoking meat. This is where the character plays a big role. Some char should fall off the meat and float to the surface of the liquid. This additional ingredient elevates the broth to heavenly proportions.

It's then served with fresh lettuce, a mishmash of herbs, and white rice vermicelli noodles as a side dish. Garnish with sliced garlic in vinegar, chile flakes, or limes, depending on the vendor's level of authenticity.

Sea crab spring rolls (nem cua be), a deep-fried spring roll loaded with crab, minced pork, and mushrooms, are usually served alongside the dish.
