It’s one of many incredible Vietnamese dishes, something that I think is so good due to its contrast of flavors & textures, all combined into lớn a single delicious bowl.

Recommended by both Eating Saigon and Jodi from Legal Nomads, one morning I took a stroll over to a restaurant called Chị Thông – Bún Thịt Nướng for breakfast.

The food is served at the front of the restaurant

From the appearance of the outside, it had the characteristics – small, inviting, & friendly – of the type of restaurant, that in much of southeast Asia, you’re almost guaranteed to find a satisfying meal.

After the meat is grilled, it’s placed onto a bed of rice vermicelli noodles

I could immediately smell the sweet pork being grilled before I even arrived at the restaurant. The charcoal was blazing, và skewers of marinated pork were sizzling over the fire.

The smell was unbearably good, & I had already mentally prepared myself for the feast.

The grilled pork, right off the hot grill

As soon as the pork was done grilling, the grill master would mix the finished skewers of meat onto lớn a serving platter, where they would be pulled from their skewers directly onto lớn a bed of wiggly bún, rice vermicelli noodles.

Fresh out the oil và ready lớn be served

The difference between bun thit nuong, & bun thit nuong phụ vương gio, is that the latter version includes a deep fried spring roll on top, in addition to lớn the grilled pork.

Not only does the phụ thân gio add an extra flavor to the already delicious dish, but it also gives some crunchy texture khổng lồ the soft noodles và other ingredients. I don’t think there’s any reason to not order a fried spring roll lớn top things off!

Assembling a bowl of bun thit nuong phụ thân gio

Inkhổng lồ the bowl, first went a handful of coarsely chopped herbs, I think I detected, Vietnamese coriander, sweet basil, and some lettuce.

Then in went a handful of the sticky vermicelli, followed by two kebabs of sweet grilled pork, and a fried spring roll, sliced with a pair of scissors.

Next, the noodles were garnished with scallions, that included some pork rinds & perhaps some pork oil, plus a scoop of Vietnamese pickles, a handful of peanuts, & finally a few scoops of sweet fish sauce, the dressing of any bún giết nướng.

Bún giết mổ nướng giò lụa – rice vermicelli, grilled pork, fried spring rollBún giết mổ nướng chả giòI’m sure you already know by now, but lớn begin with, I ordered the standard bowl of bun thit nuong phụ vương gio at Chị Thông (Chi Thong). The colors & presentation, was as beautiful as it always is, & it tasted as good as it looked.

Although the dish isn’t ever served with chilies added, there’s almost always a bowl of crushed, half ground chilies that you can add yourself.

A few scoops of chili inkhổng lồ my bowl, và I was ready lớn start mixing up all the ingredients so everything was coated in the fish sauce dressing and peanuts.

Price – 40,000 VND ($1.85)

Delicious bun thit nuong phụ thân gio

The pork was sweet & smokey, almost a little too sweet for me, yet still delicious.

And the makeup of all the other ingredients was wonderful – the fresh herbs, the salty scallions, the nutty crushed peanuts, the sour và crisp carrot & daikon pickle, và finally that omni-crispy deep fried spring roll.

It was indeed a great bowl of bun thit nuong, và it made an extremely satisfying Vietnamese breakfast in Saigon.

But we were not yet done eating.

Having only a single deep fried spring roll in the bowl of noodles, that was just not enough, so we decided to order an extra plate of phụ vương gio, which came on a little plate, including I think three rolls.

Wrapped in rice paper, then deep fried, the casing reminded me almost of baklava, micro thin layers of crispy dough.

Price – 30,000 VND ($1.39) for three

The fried spring rolls were, I think, filled with a mixture of minced meat, mung bean noodles, and perhaps some taro lớn make it creamy và hearty.

They were big and packed with ingredients, & very good.

Cơm tnóng sườn – broken rice with grilled porkCơm tấm sườn

Finally, to ensure we had enough energy to lớn keep walking around Saigon & doing as much sightseeing & running around as possible, we ordered a plate of com tam suon, the highly common southern Vietnamese dish of broken rice topped with a grilled pork chop.

The meat, probably marinated in the same sweet soy sauce that the other pork was marinated in, was sweet & salty, & hot off the grill. Again, it came garnished with scallions & pork oil, Vietnamese pickles, a handful of shredded pork & skin, and a slice of Vietnamese meatloaf.

Just lượt thích the bun thit nuong, the rice và pork was also delicious at Chị Thông.

Price – 37,000 VND ($1.71)

The purple paint job at the restaurant

You’ll know you’re at Chị Thông – Bún Thịt Nướng by the noticibly purple paint job, the shiny stainless steel tables and chairs, và the wonderful smell of grilled pork outside the restaurant.

Many customers also choose lớn order takeaway, so they can conveniently roll up on their motorbikes, grab their food, & continue on their way.

Here was our total bill at Chị Thông – Bún Thịt Nướng

There were three of us eating, myself, my wife, và her sister was also along with us for a few days during our trip khổng lồ Saigon.

Our total bill came to lớn 215,00 VND ($10.07) for three bowls of vermicelli, three extra fried egg rolls, a plate of rice and pork, & a few beverages.
