Bunchow(sp?)-- Vietnamese soup?

NYCHI | Aug 2, 2005 05:29 PM

Hi, traveling in Hanoi earlier this year and a friend brought me to a place that was famous for its bunchow (pronounced Boon Chow). It's a soup that is sort of sweet, with noodles, chunks of pork, a bowl of greens (cilantro, mint, lettuces) and a fried spring roll in it. Anyone familiar with this? Can I get it here in Chicago?
