Bun Nuoc Leo (Vermicelli with Savory Broth)
Another savory dish from uncle 9, Bun Nuoc Leo has a fine depth of flavor from the rich and heavy fermented fish. Obviously, the key element is nuoc leo (broth); therefore, if the broth is too light, too salty, or too smelly, everything will fall apart. As good as uncle 9, of course, his broth is wonderful. It’s delicate, rich, and flavorsome. Bun Nuoc Leo is another delicious vermicelli dish next to Bun Kien Giang and Bun Mam. Even though all three dishes have some sort of Mam, each has a unique flavor of its own. As someone who enjoys exceptional foods, I find all three dishes to be enjoyable.
