Mmm, even though this wasn’t the best quality and it was on the salty side I still love these flavor combinations. Actually, whether Thai, Chinese, Vietnamese, or Japanese I uaually always like the eggplant dishes I order.

The banh mi’s at Little Saigon are pretty large and super affordable! And they don’t skimp on the meat either, yeah!

Bun bo hue – Little Saigon

Bun bo hue - Little Saigon
Hue style spicy noodle soup with tendon, sliced pork ball, and blood cubes. $7.25
Little Saigon, South San Francisco CA

Hadn’t had this type of soup before but I really liked it! The broth was rich abd amazing and the ingredients were different enough to make it interesting. I will say that there were a lot of blood cubes in there – too many for me to comfortably finish. But the tendon and pork balls were yummy enough to finish.

Mmm, I love Vietnamese imperial rolls! I enjoy the crispy, almost hard texture of its fried wrapper and the salty fish sauce that it always comes with. Almost as good as lumpia, hehe.
