1. Banh Canh Cha Ca

2. Bun Bo

A special dish not to be missed when visiting Mui Ne Vietnam, is Bun Bo. What sets this dish apart from other places is that the Bun Bo in Phan Thiet uses small vermicelli noodles, generous portions of beef, and a broth that carries a rich aroma of beef rather than a fishy scent. A distinctive feature is the use of cilantro as a garnish instead of the usual raw vegetables.
