My favorite Vietnamese restaurant, "Little Saigon", serves Bun Bo Hue as a weekend special, starting on Thursday night. Since I can't move in for the weekend, it is natural that I learn to prepare to make this delicious dish for myself. Now you, too, can enjoy it, without going far from your kitchen!
