When asked what the secret was to making a "standard" Hue beef noodle pot, the owner was candid: "Mệ (grandmother - PV) will cook everything in the same braised pot, including the meat, spring rolls, patties, and blood tendons. The sweetness will come from the casserole bones, combined with the gentle aroma of lemongrass, and then seasoned to taste, particularly with a little delicious fish sauce."Rich beef noodle bowl with vibrant colors.

The water is clear but rich in the spiciness of lemongrass and chili and is best served with a little chili sauce and sliced fruit peppers.For over 50 years, she has been selling noodles on Chi Lang Street.
