Bun Bo Hue An Nam

Pin It Now!
I came here searching for some Hue food, specifically bun bo hue and banh beo, but sadly they don't serve banh beo anymore.  Why is it so hard to get a decent bowl of bun bo hue?  You would think being in San Jose and a restaurant named after the soup would produce an halfway decent bowl of bun bo hue.  Bun Bo Hue An Nam served me the worst bun bo hue I've had in my life.  Not only was the broth lacking any flavor, but there was zero spiciness at all.  The soup isn't even red from the chilis!  Even after asking for a dishful of chili paste I had to give up on this bowl and deem it a failure.  Although for the more adventurous, this place does sell ox penis with the bun bo hue.  I may eat guinea pig, but I kinda draw the line at that. 
I do, however, like the individual bowl of herbs and veggies for the soup.
