Quick Beef Pho

Jet says, "I wrote this recipe for fast pho because you don't always want to take a whole day to source the ingredients for and make pho from scratch. This is an awesome hack to be eating pho in an hour! You can find all the ingredients locally and even have them delivered. Slicing beef paper thin can be a pain. Japanese and Chinese markets always stock paper-thin meats for shabu shabu or sukiyaki."

Bun Cha

When you can’t decide if you want refreshing cold noodles or a steamy bowl of hot brothy soup, give bun cha (grilled pork patties with rice noodles) a try. It’s the best of both worlds and one of the most famous dishes to come out of Vietnam’s capital city, Hanoi. Springy rice noodles are served with a side of grilled marinated pork patties (and, in this case, pork belly too) that sit in a warm dipping sauce that doubles as a sweet-tart broth. Whether you dip the noodles into the sauce, spoon it over your entire dish or slurp it straight from the bowl, there is no wrong way to enjoy bun cha.
