Bún chả (Vietnamese: [ɓǔn ca᷉ː]) is a Vietnamese dish of grilled pork and noodle, which is thought to have originated from Hanoi, Vietnam. Bún chả is served with grilled fatty pork (chả) over a plate of white rice noodle (bún) and herbs with a side dish of dipping sauce. The dish was described in 1959 by Vietnamese food writer Vu Bang (1913–1984), who described Hanoi as a town "transfixed by bún chả." Hanoi's first bún chả restaurant was on Gia Ngư, Hoàn Kiếm District, in Hanoi's Old Quarter.
Bún chả originated and remains very popular in Hanoi and throughout Vietnam. A very similar dish of rice vermicelli and grilled meat was invented in Southern Vietnam, called bún thịt nướng, which uses skewered meat in place of the grilled porkballs.
Bún Chả Hương Liên restaurant in Hanoi became famous after United States President Barack Obama dropped in for bún chả with Chef Anthony Bourdain while he was on his trip to Vietnam in May 2016.

Bún chả is usually eaten at noon. This is a unique feature of Hanoi's culinary culture. However, nowadays, there are also some restaurants selling bún chả for all day.
