One of specific Vietnamese Noodle Recipes is Quang Noodle (Mi Quang). It came from Quang Nam, Vietnam. However, today, you can find it easily any restaurant around my country, especially HCM City.
Mi Quang in Hoi An
If you’re in Hoi An, you have to try Mi Quang. This delicious noodle dish is famous in the Quang Nam Province (hence the name Mì Quảng, or “Quang noodles”). You can find it in other cities such as Saigon, but if you’re coming to Central Vietnam we suggest you hold out on trying Mi Quang til you get here. It’s a popular breakfast dish, but you can also find Mi Quang for lunch before 1:00pm. One bowl of this deliciousness typically costs around 15,000-20,000VND (about $1 USD!).
What make Mi Quang so special
It can become the main dish for your family meals if you are ready to cook. It contains 4 main elements of one good meal: Protein, lipid, mineral and vitamins. It is easy for cooking as well.
First things first – the noodles
The thick cut Quang noodles have the perfect balance of softness and chewiness, and are made on a daily basis so they’re always fresh.
Next- the toppings
The most common Mi Quang has slices of moist roasted pork, fresh lettuce, local mint & basil among other herbs, garlic, and spring onions are the perfect combination. However, Mi Quang takes this to the next level by adding some local river shrimp, boiled quails eggs, and crushed peanuts. This is all topped with a savory broth which is usually pork based with a slight sweetness of Vietnamese fish sauce. Mi Quang can have many variations, so dishes may have something different like chicken or beef depending on what street food stalls or restaurants you go to.
