1. Bún bò Huế Đông Ba
110A Nguyễn Du, D1
Đông Ba is the name of a long-standing iconic market in Hue. That gives this dining place a vibe from the old capital. Opened in the 1920s, the store has been serving the most authentic Bun bo Hue with a cooking feat. It’s located right in the center of the city, where visitors can find it with ease.
2. Bún bò Chú Há
278 Võ Văn Tần, D3
This is the place diners can watch all the ingredients used to cook the dish. The broth here is made to be perfect. Sipping the first spoon, you can sense the sophistication the cook added from the herbs and sweetness of hour-cooked beef-bone. The signature Chú Há offers is the hunk of oxtail tendered in a bit flavor of lemongrass.
3. Bún bò Hẻm
5 Lý Chính Thắng, D3
Located a bit further from the center, Bún bò Hẻm used to challenge visitors to find the store in an alleyway. But thanks to the success of serving the best Bún bò Huế, the place has moved to a bigger location. They have been making hearty bún bò ever since that attracts lots of tourists. On the menu, you can find a number of Hue specialties that match the tastes of the crowd.
4. Bún bò Huế 31
31 Mạc Đĩnh Chi, D1
This worn-out and obsolete bún bò diner has been there for 30 years serving the most generous bowls. Not just the meat, but the bones are also stewed to melting tenderness. In this old dining shop, the chef doesn’t mind showing you how he prepares the bowl for you. Coming to Bún bò Huế 31, you should have a “tô đặc biệt đủ thứ” to enjoy this sophisticated to the fullest.
5. Bún bò Nam Giao
248 Bùi Viện, D1
You can find this decent bún bò store on Bui Vien, the vibrant street full of bars and restaurants, right in the heart of the expat hub. They serve bowls in a humble size so that you can tell that the dish suits you. The star of Nam Giao is the broth full of taste from lemongrass and shrimp paste. On the side, you can add the complimentary greens to spice up the bowl.
