Bun bo is a bowl of rice vermicelli topped with shredded lettuce, grilled beef, sprouts, toasted peanuts, fried shallots, and marinated slices of green papaya. It came with a side of red chili sauce spiked with orange juice, sugar and garlic. This made for a terrific (and healthy) one dish meal. The bun bo set me back 15000 Dong, less than $1.
