This is Cao Lau. A pork noodle dish, native of Hoi An town in Central Vietnam. I’ve blogged this dish before. The rendition above is the Saigon take. I find this at the "What? You want a table for six? You’ll be bloody lucky" – Quan An Ngon Restaurant at 138 Nam Ky Khoi Nghia street in District 1. It’s the first time I’ve seen this dish sold anywhere outside Hoi An. I don’t know when Quan An Ngon added it to the menu. I can’t remember seeing it on previous visits. Their take ain’t that great. Quite bland and nowhere near as enjoyable as the one I blogged from Hoi An, see below. Looks quite a bit different too, no?
