Popular Chinese dish

Originating in China, the dish was altered in Viet Nam, and many Chinese-Vietnamese now sell it for a living.

Trần Tuấn Sieng, head chef of a Chinese-Vietnamese restaurant in District 5, told Viet Nam News that the owner is of Chinese origin.

“She wanted to open a restaurant that sells Chinese noodle dishes to pass down the experience and flavours that her family gave her.”

The cooks made changes to the dish to suit local tastes while retaining the crucial Chinese flavours, he added.

In fact, District 5 is where many Chinese-Vietnamese live, often making a living selling Chinese dishes.

Trần Minh Vũ, a cook at a restaurant in Gò Vấp District, said that his restaurant has been selling this dish for more than 10 years.

He said the stir-fried crispy noodle dish is typically eaten in the afternoon and evening. Indeed, many restaurants that sell the dish are open in the afternoon until night.

For a mouthwatering combination of crispiness and savoury sauce, make sure to stop by a local shop and give stir-fried crispy noodles a try. – VNS
