Here’s some Bo Kho I had at a noodle shop in Chinatown NYC. I was originally hoping to get a nice bowl of ramen at Ippudo (rated one of the top ramen shops in NYC) but my aunt took me here instead. I can definitely say it was well worth it at only $5 for the bowl, while ramen would’ve cost me $15. This was my first time eating Bo Kho as well. I wasn’t sure what sort of flavors to expect but it was kind of like a french beef stew with Vietnamese flavors. I liked that the noodles were freshly made as opposed to dried.
So goooooood. I’m going to try to make this very soon. I think the wide rice noodles are a perfect fit for this dish. My aunt says she prefers egg noodles but I never like egg noodles in anything but wonton soup.
