at Bun Cha Ra Boom (Starfield City Wirye)
-Hakam, Hanam, Gyeonggi, Republic of Korea-
with the Family
Bun Cha Ra Boom is a Vietnamese restaurant chain. Currently 8 locations across the country, including 1 in Wirye. Specializes in pho and bun cha.
The bun cha was good. The set came with a plate of salad of lettuce and baby greens, plus a few pieces of deep-fried spring roll, which were delicately crispy/flaky on the outside and juicy inside. The bun cha broth was a bit too sweet, while lacking in fish sauce – very likely adapted to local palates – but otherwise fine. The meat comprised slices of grilled pork belly, which were tasty in themselves and also added a touch of char-flavor to the broth. The noodles were a bit limp, but okay. Overall, a nicely balanced meal.
