Pho with beef meatballs among best street foods in Asia

Hanoi, December 6 (VNA) – Pho bo vien thap cam (Vietnamese noodle soup with mixed beef meatballs) in Ho Chi Minh City has been described as the best street food in Asia by Australia’s Traveller website.

The travel website wrote that tiny and shabby stores are “usually hidden from casual view by the hordes of motorbikes inevitably parked out the front, as a steady stream of locals stops in for some of the best noodle soup in the country.”

“As long as you're not put off by small plastic chairs and laminate tables that haven't been wiped down in a while, you can enjoy Pho Bo Vien Thap Cam's rich, delicious broth and tender beef or chicken pieces in the company of a friendly crowd,” it added.

Meanwhile, Hoi An city was noted as a worthy destination for food lovers.

This website said in this central city of Vietnam, “the produce for the street food comes from the surrounding organic farms and markets – not within 100 miles, but 50 miles.”

“Must-try dishes are cao lau, white rose, mi quang, thit heo nuong cuon, dau pho, fried wonton with crab, and the cheapest fresh beer in Vietnam.”
