If you do not like to eat pork, you can call lean meat noodles or shrimp noodles, etc. although Pork leg noodles are the most favorable.
My Thay (Tossed Noodles)
Even if you have experienced many tours to Vietnam, you can still hardly find a place that serves this unique dish, tossed noodles.
Throughout many years of hereditary generations, the Tossed noodle store on Ba Cu street near Vung Tau is no longer strange to diners. Right when you step into the food store, you will see the chef tossing noodles very artistically and attractively. Noodles will be divided into equal parts before being put into a racket to preliminarily boil. While dipping noodles in hot water, the chef also “tosses” them into the air several times before draining them into the bowl. This is what creates the special attraction of this small restaurant.
No grease can be seen in the broth in this restaurant. It is total clarity and sweet thanks to stewed bones and ribs. Diners can order noodles with ribs, or big chewy beef. If possible, you should also try some “hoanh thanh”, another popular dish of this restaurant.
