this is easily one of my favorite vietnamese sour soup since it is slightly similar to the filipino sour soup dish, the sinigang but the difference is that it made with less souring agent and tends to be more spicy than the filipino sinigang.

this south vietnamese sour and slightly spicy soup is execellent and is available here at pricey vietnamese restaurants like Vietnam House Restaurant and even at it's sister, the lemongrass restaurant and even at other restaurants and small snack stands and sidewalk stalls and the pho mua sam nightmarket at Benh Thanh. Price is 50,000 VND an order at the street stalls and it costs 80,000-120,000 VND at the Upscale restaurants.

Favorite Dish: you can find them everywhere and try to taste it.
