Saucey Zucchini Noodle Bowl – BÚN CHÀ

Bún Chà is a common and traditional dish found in the streets of Vietnam’s capital, Hanoi. Made with rice Vermicelli noodles it’s then topped with fresh herbs, lettuce, grilled pork and spring rolls – and of course savory, sweet Nước Chấm sauce is then drizzled over the bowl.
