More About This Recipe
Growing up as a somewhat picky eater, I really missed out on some amazing food that was right under my nose. I lived down the street from one of the largest Vietnamese communities in New England, but I didn't have my first taste of Vietnamese food until about a year ago!
Now whenever I am visiting home, my sister and I try and stop in to one of the local restaurants for some Vietnamese delights. Most people go right to Pho, a hot soup that is the favorite Vietnamese option for many, but I always search the Bun section of the menu for cold noodles and exotic grilled meats.
This Vietnamese Bun recipe looks daunting, with lots of ingredients and writing, but it is actually a fairly quick and easy dish and makes for an amazing weekend lunch. The main work is cooking the sweet and savory meatballs, known as Xiu Mai in Vietnamese, and as Vietnameatballs by me.
