Banh canh (thick noodle soup), a traditional dish in central Vietnam, can now be easily found in Hanoi in delightful varieties. Banh canh ghe (crab thick noodle soup) is one of them.
Thach Huong, a Hanoi woman who has a special love for banh canh and seafood has successfully created banh canh ghe, a unique combination of Huong’s two favorite ingredients. Huong’s banh canh ghe OSON is now a popular food brand for Hanoi diners
Huong’s banh canh ghe has an exclusively delicious taste created by a sweet and clear broth made from fresh crab, pork bone and dried shrimp and squid. The dish is also an amazing blend of colors with white rice noodles, orange crab, yellow fish cakes and green onions
It took a while to catch on, but after two years of perseverance one dumpling vendor finally brought a taste of the central region to Vietnam’s capital city.
You’ll find it alongside many a meal in Vietnam to add that little bit of extra flavor and a touch of spice. But shrimp paste comes into its own when its served with vermicelli, pork and tofu.
