They are rich in flavors and pleasing to our taste buds such as curry, Pho beef noodle soup, papaya salad and three color drink (aka Nab Vam). You will also be guided into learning actual traditional Hmong food that is made with simple flavors which reflects Hmong people lifestyle as agriculturalists.

Bun Vermicelli Noodle Salad

 

Bun (pronounced as boon) is a Vietnamese salad. Besides ordering Pho noodle soup at the Pho restaurants, Bun salad is always another option to have. I learned to make Bun from my oldest sister awhile back when we first made it for the first time for the family. You could oven or grill your meat and would come out just as succulent as the restaurant’s. Enjoy!

Preparation: 5 minutes. Marination: 2 hours. Cooking: 45-55 minutes.
