“Remnants of French colonialism can be found at Banh My Sot Vang Hang Bong, where crispy loaves of baguette-esque banh mi is served with a thin beef stew that’s similar to boeuf au vin or boeuf bourguignon but adapted for the Vietnamese palate,” Hong Kong Tatler wrote.
Helsinki tops the list, followed by Mexico City, Hanoi, Palermo, Seoul, Seattle, Osaka, Los Angeles, Bangkok, Edinburgh, Wellington, Washington D.C., Faroe Islands, Napa.
Earlier, bun cha in Hanoi has been ranked 14th among the most popular street foods in the world, according to a list released by Special Broadcasting Service (SBS), Australian public broadcasting radio, online and television network.
“Everyone has heard of pho, but perhaps the most loved street food of Hanoi is actually bun cha - a dish combining marinated grilled meats, rice noodles, dipping sauce and an abundance of fresh herbs. You'll find it on every street corner in Hanoi or in the central markets in Ho Chi Minh – as a lunchtime dish only,” SBS wrote.
