A disk of authentic Vietnamese gumbo or bún mắm.
HCM CITY – A stall in Phó Cơ Điều Market, also known as Thiếc Market, located on Phó Cơ Điều Street in HCM City’s District 11 serves authentic Vietnamese gumbo or bún mắm, a signature dish from the southwestern region.
Originally from Cambodia, the dish made with vermicelli, broth and fish sauce is simple but has a wonderful taste.
The Cambodian dish is served with prahok dipping sauce, but in Việt Nam it is often replaced with fish sauce.
The dish is served with fish, shrimp, chicken, pork, pork rolls, raw spinach, finely chopped banana, bean sprouts, and lettuce. A bowl of Vietnamese gumbo costs VNĐ30,000 (US$1.29) and is served for breakfast or lunch. — VNS
