Hủ tiếu Nam Vang is a Cambodian noodle dish that has Chinese influences and has been adapted to fit the taste of the Vietnamese people. The dish comes with the usual surf-and-turf combination of ground pork, slices of pork liver, poached shrimps, and quail eggs. It is topped with fried shallots, chopped chives, and green onions. Egg noodles (Mì) or chewy tapioca noodles (Hủ Tiếu) are served with this dish and you have a choice between dry (Khô) or soup (nước). Personally, I like the dry version with the tapioca noodles more because of its chewy texture. Also, I think it absorbs more flavors than the egg noodles. There is a pitcher of light soy sauce filled with garlic and other seasonings on the table for you to add to your dish or you can use it as a dipping sauce. You can add as much or as little as you want to fit your palate. Since I love garlic, I add a couple of spoonfuls to coat the dry noodles before digging in.
