"Hu tieu bo vien", or beef meatball noodle soup, can be seen everywhere in the downtown area with locals eating it in the morning and evening.

In Chau Doc, a town in the Mekong River Delta province of An Giang bordering Cambodia, the hu tieu, a rice-based noodle, is distinctive with the strands being smaller, soft and chewy.

The cook puts the noodles to a bowl and adds the broth made from bones and small pieces of bo vien (beef meatballs). Fresh herbs are also available for people who like their taste.

A bowl costs around VND20,000 (around US$0.86).
