Vietnamese "Chao Long"

DanielNTX May 20, 2008 09:00 PM

Anybody know where I can find Chao Long in Austin? Since the closure of Ba Le, I haven't found a Vietnamese restaurant that serves it.

For those that don't know it's a rice porridge with different innards and gelatinous blood. More info here: http://www.noodlepie.com/chao/index.html

      Tried it. Was actually not very good.... There was no blood, intestines, or tripe.
