While traveling overseas for leisure is put on hold, the closest thing to jet-setting we can now enjoy is through the world’s cuisines. For something crisp, healthy yet thoroughly delicious that will remind you of the flavors of Vietnam, this noodle bowl set by Ngon Vietnamese Deli is a must-try!
Many Vietnamese street food and snacks headline their fresh vegetables and well-balanced flavors, making for healthy and happy eating. One of these street-side specialties include the bún thịt nướng chả giò. This dish is cold vermicelli noodles in a bowl with an assortment of toppings. There’s fresh vegetables and herbs, chicken or pork, fried spring rolls, and garnishes. It comes with a light, sweet-salty nước mam fish sauce, which you use as dipping sauce for your assorted toppings.
It’s a delicious way to eat healthy at home, and eating veggies will never seem (and taste!) like a chore. This Vietnamese noodle bowl is also available to a la carte as a single bowl for only P195. Ngon Vietnamese Deli’s bundle is a great option for family-style interactive eating. You get to portion your proteins, toppings, and sauces just the way you like it! Oftentimes food delivery orders we make are our usual combination of fast-food and pizzas, so this healthier option is a great break in between those indulgent eats.
Ngon’s Bún thịt nướng chả giò bundle rounds up all the accoutrements to build your own bowl. The bundle includes noodles, a choice of lemongrass chicken or pork, and both fresh and fried spring rolls, and vegetables. Finish off assembling your noodle bowl with the garnishes and nước mam sauce, which are also included in the bundle. Additionally, the set includes dessert: a homemade coffee jelly!
The Dish: Bún Thịt Nướng Chả Giò. Available as Bundle (P1,200 for 4-5 persons) with dessert, or a la carte (P195 – Single)
