Vietnamese Kway Teow Soup (Hu Tiew Nam Vang) feat. Chef Eric
Updated: Feb 21, 2022
Migrating Teochews introduced the art of eating rice noodles to the indochinese countries as wheat does not grow well in the tropical climates. Hu Tiew Nam Vang is the Vietnamese interpretation of Teochew Kway Teow Noodle Soup and the equivalent of Kuy Teav in Cambodia. Essentially the broth is made with pork bones with the addition of dried seafood for extra umami and is lightly seasoned with fish sauce. Toppings in vietnam are usually pork meat, offals, quails eggs and fresh prawns. The noodles are blanched with beansprouts and ladles with the savoury umami rich broth and toppings before garnishing with spring onions, coriander and pork lard cracklings or fried garlic oil.
Today, Chef Eric (IG:chefericlow) will show us a step by step tutorial on how to recreate his latest recipe using our LG Whole Grain Kway Teow. This healthy noodle soup is a very popular street grub found in the street hawkers of southern Vietnamese cities and can be enjoy as any meal of the day.
