If you are feeling froggy and yearning for something other than pho, give bun bo hue a shot. It’s spicy beef noodle soup (Hue style) and will surely satisfy your appetite. I’ve always came in and ordered Bun Bo Hue Dac Biet which consists of the extras that most would hesitate (ham hock and pork blood) but give it a shot, you may learn to love it. I certainly do! If not, just get it without.
In my opinion, this place is the best bun bo hue (BBH) around. They are consistently tasty and there’s no holding back on the vegetables here either while most will try to skimp you on bean sprouts and cilantro. At Thanh Tong, they don’t hold back.
Also note that this isn’t a fancy pancy restaurant. Come hungry and grimey.Eden Center 6795 Wilson Blvd
