Vietnamese crab noodle soup

Vietnam has many other delicious noodle dishes than phở. For examples, this is bún riêu cua (rice noodles in soup with crab paste). Fried thick tofu and sourness of tomato make a good combination in this dish. I introduce the Vietnamese way of eating noodles which I have observed. First, a diner chooses two chopsticks with similar length and thickness among many of them in chopstick stand, and carefully wipes them with paper napkin. In addition, it seems a manner that he/she squeezes a piece of lime or kumquat while removing its seeds on a spoon, which is used for eating soup.
