The Bn riu thập cẩm was the tastiest bn riu I've ever had. Three different types of seafood patties (the shrimp ones were especially amazing) in a mildly hot and sour crab and tomato broth with vermicelli. Great flavour profile!

Less garlicky, smaller fried tofu, and still not very spicy, the bn riu cua has changed a bit since I first had it here 4 years ago. A few tasty blobs of brown crab meat and lots of slippery thick rice vermicelli. I loaded all the shredded lettuce into the bowl along with the basil. Very nice for a change in my routine!

Enjoyed a bowl of bn riu cua after reading about it on Anne DesBrisay's review (www.ottawacitizen.com).

The soup was good, although I don't remember details. It was less spicy than I expected but quite garlicky.

I was there just a few days after the Citizen review was published and the place was hopping! Like Momomoto, I had already posted my photo to Twitter (twitter.com) and didn't remember to put it here until now.

This is my first Bn Riu so I can only speak to how this tasted: fantastic. Lots of seafood, shrimp, fried fish and crab meat mixed in the eggs and floating on top, a few slices of Vietnamese pork, some shredded cabbage, slices of tomatoes and hot oil on top. The noodles were the vermicelli type. Simply satisfying at a very decent price. This was the medium size. I just exercised so I was hungry. I might have the small bowl next time. Lol!
