Bun Xao Chay

Vegetarian Fried Noodles

A pile of thin rice noodles are fried up with vegetables. Peanuts and crispy fried onions might be sprinkled on top. It's simple and light, but quiet flavourful. There will usually be a few bonuses that may or may not be vegetarian, like a fried spring roll, a mini banh xeo, or a slice of pork loaf (that one's is definitely not vegetarian). It's usually served cold.
