HCM CITY – If you are a noodle lover, HCM City is one of the best places in the country you can try different kinds of noodles with beef offal, wonton or duck meat.
The Market 200 in District 4 is among the most famous addresses for beef offal noodles. The beef offal is stewed until tender but still a bit chewy. Lastly, the thick soup is poured on top. A serving costs VNĐ25,000 (US$1).
Another famous noodle soup in HCM City is wonton noodle soup. This is a popular dish in Chinatown in District 5, but visitors can also find it in many places in central districts.
The egg noodles at these places are usually handmade with wontons with a thin shell and flavorful filling. A meal costs from VND30,000 ($1.3).
A duck noodle soup has a characteristic aroma of northern herbs. A large piece of duck meat is stewed in the broth and then fried so the duck's skin will retain its crispiness while the flesh inside is soft and fragrant.
The side vegetables and pickles also contribute to the deliciousness of the dish. The average price is VND100,000 ($4.3) per serving.—VNS
