Bun Thang making process and enjoyment

Bun Thang's heart is a clear and delicious broth. Chicken, dried shrimp, and Shiitake mushrooms are simmered to make this dish.

Three ingredients combine to create a broth that is flavorful, sweet, and silky smooth. For around 3 to 4 hours, the broth is cooked. It has a delicate and elegant feel to it.

Over white rice vermicelli, laksa leaves, cilantro, shrimp, shredded chicken breast, and shredded "gio lua" are distributed.

Bun Thang is best served hot with seasonings such as vinegar, chile, garlic, pepper, or a small amount of shrimp paste. Despite its strong odor, shrimp paste will add flavor to Bun Thang. To complement the flavor of traditional Bun Thang, eat it with pickled radish.

There is also dried rice vermicelli available. The rice vermicelli is just exposed to hot water, and the broth is not put into the bowl. This recipe contains all of the components listed above, but there is no broth to eat with.
