Bún Riêu? What is that?? Well I didn't know how to explain it so according to Wikipedia (lol..), bún riêu is a Vietnamese meat rice vermicelli soup with a tomato soup base that you top with a shrimp paste. Sound gross? No way! I love my dad's bún riêu. He makes the soup base from scratch, adds in eggs + shrimp/crab mix, tofu, two different types fish meatballs (chả cá), and tomatoes. It's a lovely mix of everything I love. Also, you can't beat that it's HOMEMADE! =) Yum yum...
The smaller pot.. There was a bigger one in the fridge ;]
Look at all the tofu and fishballs floating =)
Honey's bowl.. The picture doesn't do it justice. It. was. HUGE.
My bowl =)
The optional veggies you can add in.
Can't forget the garlic chili paste and fine shrimp paste!!
