We all went with the original version, the most authentic variation of this dish. Thin rice noodles swirl around in the thick chowder like soup. Bits of soft, stewed intestine swim around amongst the weaves of noodle, and fresh, mini oysters are slid into the piping hot bowl at the final minute right before the forest of cilantro garnishes the top. Additional condiments such as minced garlic in soy sauce and red chili paste are added as desired. This bowl, by the way, is served with just a plastic soup spoon... no chopsticks included. Needless to say, a lot of slurping ensued.
Slurp away, y'all. Until next time, let's all get S.O.F.A.T.
