My Quang (Quang soft noodle soup)

Similar to rice noodle and chicken or pork soup (Hu tieu), My Quang is a variety of Pho (rice noodle soup), because the noodles are made from rice and soused with soup as serving. The soup sauce, which is added, comes from a mixture of flavor from beef or pork bone, shrimps, crabs, chicken and duck. The noodles are yellow, somewhat distinct from Pho. However, the main reason for having this color is to be in hannony with the colors of shrimps and crabs. There is also noodle for vegeterians.

Quang soft noodle soup tastes best when being served with a variety of herbs, such as mint leaves, houttunya, cabbage, onion, coriander, banana flower and so on. A bowl of Quang soft noodle soup is normally dressed with pieces of banh trang (also called baked rice paper), roasted groundnuts, shrimp or pork, which look very tasty.
