Bun bo is a popular Vietnamese soup containing rice vermicelli (bún) and beef (). Bun bo originated in Hue, a former capital of Vietnam. Outside the city of Hue and some parts of Central Vietnam, it is called bún bò Huế to denote its origin. Within Huế and surrounding cities, it is known simply as bún bò. (Wikipedia)
