ESC says this recipe was based off the coveted Austin Vietnamese spot that has since closed, Tam Deli. Have any of you ever had the chance to eat there?

Difficulty: Medium
Tips & Tricks: Same with the chile oil dumplings, make sure you squeeze out all the air when forming the dumplings.
Easy Substitutes: Very, very good quality store bought meat stock. Maybe even let it simmer for a bit with a couple star anise, cloves and a cinnamon stick.
Pair With: Some crusty bread
Make Again?: Again, only when my friend Bianca comes over.
