Bun Cha is a light and refreshing dish that is made out of noodles (bun), pork patties (cha) and thin pork slices. Bun Cha is originated from Hanoi and it is also one of the most popular dishes in Hanoi. Instead of mixing the sauce into the noodles together with the meat, the meat is separated from the noodles. The meat sits in the dipping sauce which has a slightly sweet taste. You pick some noodles with your chopsticks and dunk it into the dipping sauce and then eat with the pork and Vietnamese herbs.
