Bon Bo Hue Xuan is an excellent Bon Bo Hue restaurant.  Bon Bo Hue is also one of my favorite Vietnamese dishes aside from PHO.  To me the biggest difference between Bon Bo Hue and PHO is the soup base?  And also PHO you usually get beef, but with Bon Bo Hue I feel like you get a bunch of weirder stuff (like pig blood).



This place was recommended to us by our SAPA tour guide, and it was near our hotel too so why not go? This was a local place that we went to, and we knew it was local because everyone was sitting on these low chairs.  I don’t know how it’s comfortable for them but I guess if you grew up sitting like that then it becomes the norm.


I guess it helps you with digestion too?? I don’t really know.

Anyways this place was delicious, I recommend all to come and try (if you are in Hanoi, old quarters of course).  Because flying here just for a bowl of Bon Bo Hue is just ridiculous.  Unless you are a billionaire.
