Pho Bo @ Hang Dong, Hanoi

We were wandering at Old Quarters in the morning when I thought we should try our first bowl of pho bo (beef noodles). After trying our utter best to talk to the locals; with some help of pen, paper and hand gestures, we managed to find a Pho Bo shop recommended by the locals at Old Quarter area. Ordering was easy; since we cant speak vietnamese; we just pointed at the beef and said pho bo. They understood us perfectly :)
Soon, a piping hot bowl of beef noodles were served and it looks wonderful (and it was a huge bowl too!). The smooth silky noodles were topped with generous amount of thinly sliced beef..As it was a rather cold and dull day, we were quite glad for some warm soup to add some cheer to our bellies. The soup was clear, mild in flavour, with hints of beef and herbs. The beef; sliced thinly had a nice bite to it, very tender. You can also add other condiments to the soup if you find it bland (Dragon girl did); such as the chilli sauce, bean sauce, lime etc. I enjoyed this bowl of simple beef noodles and for 10000 dong a bowl (about RM2), it's definitely worth it.
If you are at Old Quarter and wandered to this part of the road, why not try pho bo at this shop? I'm not sure what Hang Dong means, since the street was with shops selling plumbing/pipes products, guess that's your clue :)
