In our inaugural episode of CHOW-TO, Guillermo learns how to make Bun Bo Hue with Chef Jimmy Ly of Madame Vo in New York City. Bun Bo Hue is the second most popular traditional Vietnamese soup after Pho, this one originating in the city of Hue in Central Vietnam (translated to English Bun means noodles, and Bo means beef). It is a dish famous for its balance of acidity, spice, and umami flavors. This particular iteration is inspired by Southern Vietnam, and is spicy and rich in color and flavor. Watch and learn!
