Vietnamese Grilled Pork With Vermicelli Recipe (Bún Chả)

Bún chả is a pho or noodle dish which originated in Hanoi, Vietnam. It is a popular dish that is found in every street corner of Hanoi. It has a perfect balance of noodles, fresh herbs, pickled vegetables, grilled meat, and a light sweet broth. Eating bún chả is quite an experience. Unlike most pho dishes that are served in bowls, the components of bun cha are served separately. The broth serves as a dipping sauce for the noodles, herbs, and grilled meat.

Make this dish at home and serve it to your family. You might find that bún chả will quickly become your family’s favorite noodle dish.
