We just came back from Vietnam.  It was an awesome trip.  There'll be more Vietnam posts following, as there's plenty of stuff to blog about.

We stayed in the  district in Hoàn Kiếm district in Hanoi.  Bun Cha is a Hanoi style vermicelli noodle (which is bun) with grilled pork.  This place was highly recommended by the people in the area.

Bún Chả Hàng Mành

This place is tiny with great food.  You can kinda worry about how they wash their veggies, like, if it's clean, or if they'll reuse what you didn't eat.  But, we didn't care.  This meal was about $7 USD and I had beer.

these were spicy

They had pork meatballs and grilled pork in very light fish sauce.  In North Vietnam, the fish sauce is pretty light.  Most of the food that you have in the US is southern style Viet food.  I think I prefer southern style.

It came with fried egg rolls.  Awesome.
