Description: 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.

Definitely was the best food that we ate in Hanoi. Simple place but the food (100% local) was absolutely amazing and tasty!

“TRY IT !!”
Reviewed June 9, 2014

Best noodles we've had in Hanoi by far ! Fresh ingredients, nice thin slices of beef and delicious broth. Add some chili sauce and soy sauce to the mix and it becomes HEAVENLY.

For approximately $2.50 this is a very safe bet for a quick lunch or dinner in Hanoi. The restaurant isn't the cleanest or most beautiful but it's a typical Vietnamese joint. You go, you sit, you eat, you leave.

“Real street food excellently done!”
Reviewed June 8, 2014

This was my husbands fav meal. All they serve is bun bo nam bo (dry noodles with beef) but it is absolutely delicious. Don't be put off by the basic room, metal tables, plastic seats....this is real Hanoi! Full of Vietnamese, the beer was cold and the atmosphere great.
Go, you won't regret it!
