Authentic Bun Cha in bay area?

tbot | Jul 25, 200612:53 AM     30

I've always been a big fan of Bun Cha Giao Thit (grilled pork with rice vermicelli and fried rolls), but after recently travelling to Vietnam I've discovered it's served a bit differently (big suprise) there.

The char grilled pork is served in a warm tangy broth rather than on top of the noodles with a fish sauce on the side. Noodles and a garden of leafy veggies and sprouts are served on the side to add to the meat and broth. I found the VN version to be much tastier and more complexly flavored.

I'm wondering if anyone familiar with the authentic preperation knows if it is available in the bay area?

thanks.
