Vietnamese Bún Chả
Vietnamese cuisine is known for packing bold flavors; bright herbs, savory broths, and lively sauces are staples in Vietnamese cuisine. Bún Chả, a pork and noodle dish, is a classic lunchtime meal in Vietnam’s capital, Hanoi. The meat is traditionally cooked over a charcoal grill, the smells wafting into the street; enticing busy passersby to stop for a quick bite. This version features seared meatballs seasoned with classic Vietnamese flavors like cilantro and garlic served over a bed of crunchy veggies, spicy chilies, and tender chewy rice noodles.
