Beef meatball noodle soup in Chau Doc Town

Beef meatball noodle soup in Chau Doc Town

"Hu tieu bo vien", or beef meatball noodle soup, can be seen everywhere in the downtown area with locals eating it in the morning and evening.


In Chau Doc, a town in the Mekong River Delta province of An Giang bordering Cambodia, the hu tieu, a rice-based noodle, is distinctive with the strands being smaller, soft and chewy.

The cook puts the noodles to a bowl and adds the broth made from bones and small pieces of bo vien (beef meatballs). Fresh herbs are also available for people who like their taste.

A bowl costs around VND20,000 (around US$0.86).
