Phu Quoc is not only a famous tourist destination with beautiful natural landscapes, but it also serves visitors many delicious and unique specialties. However, there is a very special Phu Quoc delicacy that not everyone who comes here knows about, which is bun trumpet. Although this dish is rustic and simple, it contains its own unique flavor that all visitors to Phu Quoc must enjoy.
During your trip to Phu Quoc, join Anja Beach Resort to experience vermicelli noodles and refer to 5 famous delicious places in Phu Quoc in the following article!
Introducing Phu Quoc vermicelli dish
Bun trumpet is also known as bun khen, a word borrowed from the Khmer people, referring to dishes cooked with coconut milk. This rustic dish is only known and enjoyed by truly gourmet tourists.
The special feature of bun trumpet is that the broth is cooked from fresh fish so it is not fishy. Due to the rich seafood resources, people here use barracuda or silver fish. Thanks to that, Phu Quoc’s specialty vermicelli has a more unique flavor than other places, making it unforgettable for diners.
A full bowl of vermicelli noodles includes fresh vermicelli, bean sprouts, herbs, papaya, cucumber and served with broth poured on top. Diners just need to use chopsticks to mix it well. If you find it sweet, you can add a little sweet and sour fish sauce that the restaurant has prepared. When enjoying, diners will feel the sweetness, the aroma of fresh sea fish and the richness of coconut milk. If you don’t like eating noodles, you can dip the bread in the broth, which is also very rich. One bowl of vermicelli is not too much, so some people eat 2 to 3 bowls.
