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.

My husband and I stumbled on Bun Bo Nam Bo while looking for a bowl of Bun Bo Hue. We were so hungry and wet from a downpour that we decided to stop in anyway. For Westerners, the shop might look a little intimidating, but do it. Just go in, order like you know what you're doing, watch what the locals do, and enjoy every sweet, spicy bit of those noodles. They are awesome.

This was recommended by Lonely Planet as one of the best street food experiences so we thought we'd try it, and we were certainly not disappointed! Bun bo (a huge bowl of thin beef with rice noodles and seasonings) for only 50,000VND - such a bargain!. Extremely quick turn around time and good service, plus the place is packed with locals. Not to miss for foodies in Hanoi!

The food is delicious and so cheap. You have a choice of chicken or beef (makes the choices easy). We had a beef each and 2 beers and with a tip it cost well under $10!

We asked a local to take us their favorite place....she took us here. Enough said?

It is good and cheap.

There's only 1 main course served at this little Vietnamese-style place: vermicelli noodles with green leafy vegetables, thinly sliced beef and seasonings. You get a good sized bowl for 50,000 VND - about US$2.50. Popular with locals and foreigner-friendly, too. We've been here several times, always satisfied.
