Soc Trang province has been for years the habitat of people of the Viet, Hoa and Khmer ethnic groups. Among their so many traditional dishes, bun goi da a special noodle soup is one of the most appreciated by visitors.

The best bun goi da is served at a small and shady shop in a quiet street at old Bai Xau, a site which used to be buoyant port serving the 6 Southern provinces. The shop-owner Trinh Thi Nu, is a retired school teacher in Can Tho city. She takes a very good care to ensure the best quality of the dish which requires a number of ingredients including rice noodles, pork, prawns, soybean paste, sliced red chilli and some herbs. Having put these things into a decoratively presented bowl, a flavoured hot broth, the most important thing to decide the taste of the dish, is added to the mixture.

Bun goi da is even more appealing with some fresh vegetables.

No books and documents have mentioned Bun goi da though it has been one of the favourite dishes for both locals and visitors in Soc Trang province.
