Started selling in the 1960s, Mrs. Nam’s beef noodle shop (District 10, Ho Chi Minh City) has existed for more than half a century and is loved by many people because of its unique taste.
Located at the top of an alley on Tran Nhan Ton Street (District 10, Ho Chi Minh City), there are no shops, no signs, the noodle shop of Mrs. Kho’s beef stock is always busy with customers from early morning until almost noon.
This alley restaurant was opened by the mother of Mrs. Tran Thi Tuyet Hong (50 years old, the person from the leftmost) opened in the 1960s, and until now it has been over 65 years.
“That day, my mother raised 11 children to sell everything in the market. After that, I learned how to cook braised beef so I opened it. At first, it was not very successful, but my mother learned and corrected. fix every day, gradually also satisfy customers, “Ms. Hong shared.
Ms. Hong also said that the beef she imported from the company and other raw materials were also delivered by the drivers every day so she did not have to go to the market. After finishing her business in the morning and afternoon, she prepared to cook a new pot of beef stock for the next day.
An important secret to a good pot of beef stock, according to Hong, is the combination of two things: good ingredients and the “mind” of the cook. Curry powder (the typical spice to create the flavor of braised beef) was ordered very well by her at Ben Thanh market. Meanwhile, in order to keep the beef stew soft and soft, she had to use the technique of “fire stew” (boiling pot of braised beef several times), with different sizes of fire.
These factors have created a very unique flavor of the beef pot here, attracting many customers to eat regularly. “On weekends, the shop is full of guests, I have to work without a break,” said Hong.
Mr. Bui Duy Duc (District 10) is a familiar customer of Mrs. Nam’s noodle shop for more than 10 years, since Mrs. Hong’s mother was still alive. He said that because the stock of beef stock here is very strong, medium mouth, beef is not too soft, nor too chewy so he often comes to eat at the restaurant
Meanwhile, Tran Kim Lien (70 years old) is a “historical witness” of this noodle shop. “I eat here from small to large, and later go get married in District 8, I often come back to eat. I have tried beef stock in many other places already, but no place is as good as this, after eating it is not never forget, “confided Ms. Lien.
A bowl of beef noodle soup is sold at an affordable price of VND 40,000. “However, those who have no money, want to eat 20,000-30,000 I still sell, because here serves different classes of people,” said Hong.
When asked if she wanted to open a bigger shop if possible, Ms. Hong said she didn’t want to. She explained: “In such a shop, I sell to many classes, motorbike drivers, motorcars, people also eat beef stock. With people who eat here from small to large, from school to to work, to succeed, to go to a car, people will not criticize us as being poor, still come here to eat, confide in us. That’s fun! “
