Vietnam’s original imperial capital, before the country was divided into North and South Vietnam, was the "forbidden city" of Huế, located on Vietnam's central coast. In their royal courts here, Vietnam's kings enjoyed the best foods the country could create. This evening, I'll be featuring one of those special "foods of the kings" - Bún Bò Huế.

Menu detail

Gỏi Đu Đủ
Gỏi Đu Đủ (green papaya prawn salad) is a masterpiece of textures … and flavors! The shredded green papaya is fresh, cool and crispy. The prawns are firm … and so richly flavored. The peanuts are crunchy and plentiful. And, the crowning accent to the salad is my special home-made ginger dressing. Sweet, sour, gingery, and yummy.
Chả Giò
Deep-fried, crispy (delicious) Vietnamese Spring Rolls … stuffed with ground pork, shrimp, mushrooms and other goodies.
Bún Bò Huế
This hearty soup contains bún (rice vermicelli noodles), slices of bò (tender beef shank) and chả cua (a Vietnamese “meatball” blend of ground pork and crabmeat). I’ll be balancing the nước leo (the beefy soup broth) with a whole host of Vietnamese spicy, sour, salty and sweet flavors using lemon grass, fish sauce, and various Vietnamese herbs and spices.
Vietnamese Herbs & Veggies
Small Plate
Accompanying your large bowl of Bún Bò Huế will be a host of fresh Vietnamese herbs & veggies to add to you soup as you eat.
Cà Phê Flan
When the French left Vietnam in the mid-20th Century, they left behind some culinary treasures - potent and delicious coffees, light and crispy baguettes, and creamy flans. Tonight, I’ll be combining two of these gems to create a delectable, yummy dessert - Cà Phê Flan. A smooth and creamy flan topped with a rich Vietnamese coffee sauce. So Good!
