Do you think Pho is the only good Vietnamese noodle?! If so, please ask a Vietnamese of their favourite noodle to discover we have much more than that.

This time, I am going to introduce duck noodle, a dish I cooked (asked to cook), every time visited my parents - they farmed chicken and duck.

It's my way of cooking and marinating, that makes the dish special and being complimented time after time. It beats any version you ever taste, even in Vietnam.
