So anybody here able to educate me a bit on Vietnamese food? Perhaps pronunciation wise?
One of my favorite dishes of all time is the Vietnamese noodle bowl(not Pho, I like Pho, although I never actually order it, brcause Bun kicks its ass)
The one with Noodles, veggies, and grilled pork , and a slightly sweet fish sauce dressing. Sometimes they put a fried spring roll in it as well, but that isn’t the prime attraction. Some places just call it a Vermicelli bowl, which annoys me as well, but I digress.
I love that stuff so much. And since Covid closed my only two close places I know that had it, I have been Jonesing. I was taking to a friend and she took me to a Pho place she swore had it. But the order taker at the desk didn’t really speak English very well. I thought I ordered(mimed) a grilled pork noodle bowl, but I got the boiled pork fat bowl instead, which was quite disappointing.
Can anyone give a phonetic primer on how to order the right one?
