Quang noodle - The flavor is typical of the Central Vietnam

Nga Do
If said: Pho is one of best cuisine food in Ha Noi, Quang noodle is a dish with typical flavor of the Central Highlands. 

Viet Nam is famous for its diverse cuisine and culture and each region has its own seductive signature dishes. As Pho is to Ha Noi and beef rice noodle soup is to Hue, Mi Quang (Quang noodles) is very popular in Quang Nam Province and Da Nang City.

A dazzling and well-known delicacy of the Old City of Hoi An and Quang Nam Province, Mì Quảng (Quang Noodles) has it name taken after the city which was once commercial capital of the Northern Coast of Vietnam. It is very difficult to walk away from this dish if you are in the Old City, on a cold day and tired after a long day of exploring and traveling. The dish will bring to you the common taste of rice noodles, the saltiness of fried shrimp and pork, with eggs, herbs, and the grilled rice paper all combined in the soup. The flavors are alluring, appealing and astonishing.

Quang noodle soups differ than most normal noodle soups in that the soups have just enough broth to barely cover the noodles. Unlike other Vietnamese noodle soup bowls whose broth will cover the noodles almost completely, Quang noodle broth is barely enough to slurp during the meal. If you do not eat a Quang noodle bowl fast enough, the broth will generally quickly be soaked up by the noodles. Quang noodle soups are generally pork and dried shrimp broth based, although some regional and family recipes will use chicken and even duck. What makes Quang noodle soups unique is the richness of the broth, the lack of it and the crushed peanut toppings on the noodles.

The mystery of Quang noodle is in that pot above. This is ‘nuoc sot mi quang’ or Quang noodle sauce. This makes the stock slightly sweet and a smidgen spicy. This dish's ingredients include rice, vegetables and meat. After being soaked in water, the rice is ground to a fine powder and made into attractive smooth white noodles. 

Accompanying vegetables are water morning-glory, cress, young banana flowers and herbs. Especially, the famous Tra Que savory of Quang Nam Province will give the dish more flavour. You can use pork, chicken, fish, crab or shrimp to make the broth. If chicken is chosen, the meat is separated, seasoned and stir-fried while the bones are stewed. Finish the stock by adding cooked chicken meat.
