Bún Thịt Nướng - Grilled pork noodles in Hue, Vietnam

Bún thịt nướng or Grilled pork noodle of Hue, Vietnam

Bun thit nuong or grilled pork noodle of Vietnam

Bún thịt nướng is Vietnamese dish that is eaten through out the country. Bún thịt nướng is more popular in central and southern Vietnam, however, while the northern areas of the country like Hanoi prefer their own specialty dish called "Bun Cha". The ingredients of the two dishes are pretty similar; both have grilled pork and rice noodles as their main ingredients, but the taste and presentation differentiate bún thịt nướng and bun cha.

Hue is the city of the emperors of the Nguyễn Dynasty. and it has many unique and magnificent dishes that were created for the emperors. You can expect the best food with the highest-quality ingredient from Hue, the city of royal cuisine.

I got to try nún thịt nướng in Hue, which is the second city we visit in Vietnam after spending one month in Hanoi. We decided to get bún thịt nướng as we wanted to compare it to the bun cha that we loved so much in Hanoi. Bún thịt nướng is served with fish sauce for dipping, just like most other dishes in Hue which all have their own special dip for each item. Bún thịt nướng, or grilled pork noodles, come with tasty grilled pork served over rice noodle and fresh veggies (such as sweet basil, banana blossoms, and bean sprout). The fatty grilled pork, which has already been marinated with a special recipe, tastes so delicious and goes really well with the rice noodles. Fresh veggies added a crispiness and a healthy herbal aroma to the dish. Pick up each bit of noodles in your chopsticks and dip it into the sauce for  extra flavor! I really like this menu. It may not be elegant like some other Hue original dishes but it's a simple, filling dish and a great way to start your morning.
