The Hanoian often choose snails which are smaller and chewier phàn nàn their land-based cousins. Fat and fresh snails are preferable, with rice noodles that were not soaked in water for too long. Cooks choose the best bun (rice noodle), which means thin and clear noodles.[4] Bun oc not only contains broth, snails, and tofu as its basic characteristics but it can also contain green bananas, some fresh vegetables or chopped water spinach, bean sprouts, water dropwort, tomatoes, and other ingredients.[5]

Another way is vĩ đại soak the snails with water mixed with vinegar or lime juice and chopped fresh chili for 2-3 hours. If soaked in this way, after picking up snails should be processed immediately vĩ đại keep the taste fresh.[7]
