I'm a Vietnamese, I never see my mom or sisters or any Vietnamese restaurants cook this dish Vietnamese chicken noodle salad. The Vietnamese do not have and do not eat spaghetti pasta in any receipt; we always eat with rice noodle or rice. Is this receipt new, it does look good.

this is a real vietnamese dish, it is at every authentic vietnamese restaurant i've ever been to.. it is usually paired with rice sticks, i think they just mentioned spaghetti as an alternative to rice sticks (which can be hard to find).
