HCM CITY — The Cửu Long (Mekong) Delta offers dozens of different kinds of delicious noodle dishes.
The Cambodian creation, fish noodles, is a popular dish from An Giang Province. Its broth is spiced up with fermented moustached danio fish sauce and “mắm ruốc”, a special sauce made from a small variety of shrimp, which gives it a rich flavor.
Bún Mắm is another delta specialty that originated in Cambodia. It is cooked with sauce made from moustached danio or snakeskin gourami. The aroma isn’t that strong.
In Kiên Giang Province, Bún Kèn is a common dish at family meals. It is only requires three ingredients: vermicelli, snakehead fish and fresh herbs.
The fish, after being cooked, is minced and added to a pan with lemongrass, chillies and garlic, and stir fried until it is dry and fluffy.
There are many kinds of soup noodles in the delta such as Bún Nước Lèo in Sóc Trăng Province and Bún Sương in Trà Vinh Province. — VNS
