Phở Cuốn - Culinary Soul Hanoi

Pho Cuon is a popular street food in Hanoi, Vietnam. We journeyed to Hanoi’s Truc Bach neighborhood to enjoy this dish.

Eating pho can be exhausting. You have to use a spoon and chop sticks, and then there’s the slurping. So much slurping. Don’t get us wrong, we adore pho. It’s just that sometimes we’re lazy and want to eat with our hands. Thankfully, we discovered Pho Cuon in Hanoi.

Pho Cuon translates to noodle roll, which makes sense since each Pho Cuon is a big rice noodle rolled around beef and green herbs like cilantro and basil. For the equivalent of US $2, we got a heaping plate. We dipped each roll in a bowl of Nuoc Cham, a sweet dipping sauce with a fish sauce base and flavors like sugar, vinegar and chili.

Most restaurants in the Truc Bach neighborhood also serve Pho Chien Phong, little pillows of yumminess. Technically, Pho Chien Phong are deep fried square rice noodles served over a gravy and topped with beef and sauteed green herbs. But we prefer to think of them as little pillows of yumminess.
