crab THICK noodle soup

Meal Box.

Where Spicy Beef Noodle Soup (BBH /Bún Bò Huê) centres around a rich broth, Crab Thick Noodle Soup (Bánh Canh) is all about the noodles. Translated, Bánh Canh literally means ‘cake soup’. Here’s why. Cut from a dense tapioca flour sheet – or ‘cake’ – these noodles are thick, bouncy and unbelievably juicy.

Various regions dress up Bánh Canh in their own style. In central Vietnam, it is a seafoodie’s dream, served with delicate fish & prawn. Up north, prawns stay, but pork replaces fish. In our own Bánh Canh, we drop fish balls into a warm chicken & onion broth, garnished with a little spring onion. We also throw in crab and tofu, similar to Bánh Canh in Vietnam’s south. Now that’s what we call a prize catch.

crab noodle soup ingredients
  1. Unpack your meal box.
  2. Open your noodles and place it in a large bowl.
  3. Pour boiling water into your bowl of noodles and set aside.
  4. Once the noodles have softened, used chopsticks or tongs to gently separate the noodles. Drain the water with a colander.
  5. Place a medium pot on the stove and carefully pour in your broth.
  6. On medium-high heat, bring the broth to a bubbling boil. Keep an eye out for your broth as we don’t want it to over boil and evaporate. When boiled, turn down to lowest heat. Alternatively, you can also heat your broth in the microwave. All you have to do is place the broth in a large bowl and microwave for 4 – 5 minutes.
    Make sure you transfer the broth as these containers are not microwavable! 
  7. Portion into your bowls starting with the thick tapioca noodles as the base.
  8. Add your fish balls, crab meat, tofu and dried shrimp.
  9. Add bean shoots in a mound and scatter springs onions and coriander.
  10. Once your broth has come to a boil, carefully ladle your broth into the bowl until noodles are covered.
  11. Squeeze your wedge of lemon, add chilli for extra spice.
