Noodle Bowl 101

Last evening my friend Orea came over to give me a tutorial on Vietnamese noodle bowl cooking. Pretty yummy, a little fishy or as Orea says, "it smells like a dog's asshole." Orea made hers with beef, mine with mushrooms. Some how I didn't take a picture of the final results but here some photos of the event.

The basic ingredients to create the fishy sauce
(not shown Thai peppers for heat!)

Mushrooms marinating in fish sauce, pepper, garlic, and vegetable oil.

Cooking those marinated shrooms with onions.

Excellent: Once tasted ever wanted.

Two bowls of fresh romaine lettuce, cilantro, basil.
Add noodles, meat or mushrooms, cucumbers,
sprouts. Add fishy sauce and enjoy!
