Vietnamese Escargot Noodle Soup (Bun Oc)

Bun Oc originated in Hanoi, Vietnam. It is a vermicelli rice noodle soup with a tomato-based broth made from slowly simmering chicken and/or pork bones. It is topped with infamous escargot and other proteins such as fried tofu, prawns, and fish cakes, and served with a plentiful platter of fragrant Vietnamese herbs (rau thom) and lime wedges. A side dish of fermented shrimp paste and chili oil also accompany the soup for those who want a bit of customization. Bun Oc is similar to Bun Rieu, but it's not as intense in flavor. It also has fewer ingredients and takes less time to cook up.
