Not familiar with the Hanoi Vietnam dishes known as Pho Cuon and Pho Chien Phong? Watch our video to see what they’re all about.
Eating pho in Hanoi can be exhausting. You have to use a spoon and chopsticks, and then there’s the slurping. So much slurping. Don’t get us wrong, we adore pho. It’s just that sometimes we’re lazy and want to eat with our hands. Thankfully, we discovered Pho Cuon in Hanoi.
Pho Cuon translates to noodle roll, which makes sense since each Pho Cuon is a big rice noodle rolled around beef and green herbs like cilantro and basil. For the equivalent of US $2, we got a heaping plate. We dipped each roll in a bowl of Nuoc Cham, a sweet dipping sauce with a fish sauce base and flavors like sugar, vinegar and chili.
We journeyed to Hanoi’s Truc Bach neighborhood to eat this unique Vietnamese dish and its kissing cousin -- Pho Chien Phong. Technically, Pho Chien Phong are deep fried square rice noodles served over a gravy and topped with beef and sauteed green herbs. But we prefer to think of them as little pillows of yumminess.
Phở Cuốn Hương Sơn is located at 19 Ngũ Xã, Trúc Bách, Tây Hồ, Hanoi, Vietnam.
