Photographer's Note

My Tho is a peaceful town in the Mekong Delta.

It is famous for its noodle soup called "Hu Tieu My Tho", typically a clear pork broth with rice vermicelli and wheat flour noodles combined. Sliced pork, meaty pork bones, offal such as intestines, liver, and heart and fresh shrimp, and possibly deep fried wonton.

The soup is then garnished to the individual taste with garlic, beans sprouts, lime, fresh chili, soy sauce, and vinegar. The noodles can be served dry with the soup on the side, or as a noodle soup.

I had mine at Hu Tieu 44, the most famous noodle shop according to locals, but I didn't choose the one with intestine and heart....
