Hu Tieu My Tho

My parents are visiting us today. I’m super excited to see them. So… I made my dad’s favorite soup… Hu Tieu My Tho! Clear tapioca noodles soup from the city of My Tho, located in the Mekong Delta region of Southern Vietnam. Toppings include thin slices of: pork’s heart, liver, gizzards and garlic caramelized pork tenderloin, seasoned ground pork, shrimp and crab claws. As for the greens: beansprouts, Chinese Chives, celery hearts, and/or Chinese celery. And as a condiment, minced garlic in brine and pickled chili peppers. Yes, definitely a labor of love. FB
