What's the name of the Vietnamese rice noodle bowl with pork, shrimp, beef, chicken, eggrolls, vermicelli, lettuce, peanuts, cilantro, cucumbers, and mint?

Asked by MyNewtBoobs (19041points) April 7th, 2011

I thought it was Bun Dac Biet, but then someone said that just means “House Special”.

What’s the name of the sauce that you pour in it? Not Sriracha, but the other stuff – sort of a light orange color with chili pepper flakes in it?

Sriracha sauce, also known as ‘rooster sauce.’ But I don’t know the Vietnamese name for that dish. I just call it the ‘combination bowl.’

EDIT: You kind of hung me out to dry by editing your question after I answered Sriracha. You want the Vietnamese name for that sauce? It just says “fish sauce” on the menu where I usually go for pho.

@mazingerz88 No, that’s beef broth, raw beef, tendon, tripe, meatballs, chicken leg, chicken breast, Thai basil, lime, bean sprouts, onions, and chili.

@cockswain Sorry, I just thought it would be easier than having tons of people answer Sriracha too because it wasn’t in the details ;)
It isn’t fish sauce – at least, not pure fish sauce, though fish sauce is probably an ingredient.

vermicelli? that’s italian
Are you thinking of “pad thai” noodles?
(Just suggesting incase you got the cultures wrong)

@mynewtboobs “In Asia the dish is known variously as seviyan in Urdu and Hindi, shemai in Bengali, sev in Gujarati, shavige in Kannada, sevalu or semiya in Telugu, and semiya in Tamil and Malayalam.” It also says that italian was first (though I know that italians took pasta from asians and made it their own). Whatever; you may be right. Tt’s kind of off topic and I don’t feel like arguing becaus I’m very busy.

Dang! I’ve had that dish before, but I don’t remember the Vietnamese name for it.

As for that dipping sauce, it’s made of fish sauce, lime juice, and chili flakes.

I posted it already. It’s nước chấm

@wenn That’s when it only has pork – there’s a different name depending upon if it has chicken, pork, beef, shrimp, or eggrolls, or combo. The only one I can’t find is the combo name.

@crisw I know, but she was asking about that one too. I thought the vermicelli dish had already been answered, but I was mistaken.
