Foodie Friday – Vietnam, Where Soup Flows Like Wine

Everywhere you look people are eating soup…pho of course being the popular choice.  But all kinds of soup, noodles, pasta, chicken feet, beef, pork rinds, vegetables, you name it, and no matter the weather, soup is being mowed down.  So today we took a field trip to the “lunch lady”.  We found her on a gastronomy blog and Anthony Bourdain has also paid her a visit.  It took us to a different part of the city off our little map, across a very busy street, and down an alley to the base of an apartment complex.  She makes a different soup every day and today we were served the following (thank you gastronomy blog): “Thanh’s bun bo Hue on Fridays is a huge draw. The broth has a deep lemongrass flavour and just a hint of spiciness, and there’s always a generous amount of tender meat. Thanh avoids gristly meat by adding a whole pineapple to the broth, which tenderizes the meat and imparts a bit of sweetness to the broth.”
