Where to get Bun Cha in London these days? Also, pho broth question

Foodie94 | Aug 19, 201203:54 AM     10

I always thought bun cha was grilled pork over rice vermicelli with pickled and fresh veggies and fish sauce, but I just googled it to see that it's also the name for a Hanoi dish, "BBQ minced pork balls in fish sauce with veg and cold noodles." Does Bun Cha refer to both? Where can I get it with meatballs in London now? I don't see it on Cay Tre/Viet Grill's menus. I was inspired to google it because of the newish place called Bun Cha on Exmouth Market, which I wasn't crazy about.

Cay Tre is still my fav place above Mien Tay and Little Hanoi (although it's decent with the tastecard discount). I had the seafood pho at Cay Tre and asked them what broth they use - they told me chicken. Is this authentic or a copout? Does anywhere do a better seafood pho? I go to Song Que sometimes for pho but they probably use chicken broth too. Thanks, Chowhounders!
