Does anybody know where to get the vinegary sauce Vietnamese restaurants serve your bun (dried rice noodles, usually with grilled foods or spring rolls) with? Its a sweet 'n vinegary concoction.. hopefully I can buy the mixture somewhere so I dont have to make it at home!?
Any help, thanks!
I'm pretty sure it's the same sauce for dipping spring rolls. It's better to make your own as the commercial brands tend to be gelatinous.
I usually make a quick vegetarian version with rice vinegar, minced garlic, chili sauce and sugar. Authentic versions have fish sauce and lime juice.
I found a recpie on saveurmag.com under vietnamese cuisine.
the sauce is called nu'ó'c châm. I find the recipes on Saveur to be authentic (if not always easy).
