Another popular breakfast (especially in the countryside) is “bun oc”: snail soup.
As we had bought some snails we decided to use half of them for this treat.
For the soup you make a broth with some pork bones.
The snails are steamed and taken out of their little houses one by one.
An important ingredient is the “bun”, the rice noodles. You can find them fresh in many places.
The final soup looks like this:
In our case the soup is with fried tofu, tomatoes and various green stuff…a great breakfast that leaves a very satisfied body feeling behind – and that keeps you going for a long time…
