Unlike other dishes, you do not need to add anything else to the soup.

The name of the dish served at this stall, "Bun quay" (stirring noodle), actually comes the action of eaters mixing a side bowl of salt, chili, and lime on their own to season the dish.

Hoang Minh, the owner, said that she crossed paths with this dish during a trip to the southern Phu Quoc Island three years ago.

Even though it was not a regional specialty, it is a must try for anyone visiting Phu Quoc, Minh said. The dish has its origins in the central coastal province of Binh Dinh. “I opened this noodle shop so more people would know about this dish.”

The broth here is clear and does not contain any added artificial seasoning. While she sticks mostly to how the dish is made originally, the flavor is "tuned" to match Saigonese tastes. Her family helps with all the chores at the stall.

After all ingredients are in the bowl, a pinch of salt is the only seasoning added before hot broth is poured on top. The noodle is thin, soft and has the dull white-transparency color of freshly made noodle.
