Hu Tieu Ca Can
There are many stalls selling “hu tieu” in Saigon, but Hu tieu Ca Can is the most delicious. In this stall, hu tieu is cooked in My Tho’s cooking method. The stall is located at the intersection of Nguyen Tri Phuong and Hung Vuong Streets. The space is very simple, even the sign “Hu tieu Ca Can” is faint with dust. However, it is always crowded from morning till afternoon.
A bowl of hu tieu is filled with many layers of ground meat, boiled shrimps, dried shrimps, and dried garlic. But what’s unique and what makes the difference here is the sweet and sour sauce, which is unlike any flavors of other stalls or restaurants.
