The Special this week is Bun Bo Hue. It is a spicy beef noodle soup! Bún bò Huế originated in the old imperial capital of Central Vietnam, Huế. The broth is prepared by cooking beef bones for a long period of time, as well as a large variety of different spices including lemon grass and chili. Shrimp paste is also a very important ingredient. My favorite part of that dish is the pig trotter. That dish is such a comfort food for our cold NY winter by excellence.
