Bun bo Nam Bo is marinating the beef, then comes making 'nuoc cham' and the pickled vegetables (shredded carrot and papaya). The pickled vegies is crispy, a little sour and a little sweet, which even makes me eat two bowls of the noodle at once. Remember to pickle the carrot (and papaya first, before marinating the beef) since it takes at least 1 hour to get a good flavor on the carrot.

We tried the typical Bun Bo Nam Bo - beef salad with noodles and peanuts. It was absolutely delicious. Interior is normal for the most Viet restaurants in this part of Hanoi but the food was amazing.

Great location. Below mediocre food. Exceptionally terrible service. Unless you have no idea what Vietnamese food is supposed to taste like, do not go here. Your disappointment is guaranteed.
