Vietnamese snail noodle soup in Vancouver
I'm desperately looking for a place where I can have Vietnamese snail noodle soup (bun oc) in Vancouver and the surrounding areas such as Burnaby, Surrey, Whiterock ... Yes I would go that far for this!
Thanks a bunch!
Ah, I remember seeing this described on a local food blog. Definitely looks tasty. Here are some results:
The foodosophy post is by fmed... I'm sure he'll chime in!
Yes, I imagine fmed will be along shortly :-). In the meantime, a permalink to another thread from 2009 where he mentions bun oc: http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/616488#4702158
Thanh Xuan 2261 Kingsway might be worth a look also... it's #7 on the menu posted here in 2009 http://www.604foodtography.com/2009/07/02/thanh-xuan-cafe/
fmed posted about this resto back then too on foodosophy though not specifically about eating the bun oc: http://foodosophy.wordpress.com/2009/...
I tried to go twice and both times it was closed -- their hours are pretty limited so call before you go.
I haven't been to Truong Tranh since the original owners retired so don't know if they still have it but the foodspotting post on Mui Ngo Gai is a great lead as it is only 5 months old. Sounds like Kingsway is where the bun oc is going to be!
Good luck in your search for Vietnamese-style gastropods!
