you know the pho dipping sauce it's yellow and u just put on ur vermicelli and such.

I followed this recipe https://drivemehungry.com/vietnamese-dipping-sauce/ and it's nothing like the one that they serve at pho. mines really dark in colour and it smells nothing like the other sauce they serve, in pho its a light smell this one is like rancid and potent.

anyone else been successful in recreating this vermicelli bowl sauce?

what i did: (made a double batch)

2/4 cup fish sauce (blue dragon fish sauce, is this one any good?)
2/4 cup sugar
2/3 cup water
4 tablespoon limejuice
4 teaspoon rice vinegar

and I left out the garlic, carrots this time to test their just garnish anyway.

im going to guess this answers about the smell, google'd:

"It's the source of our cuisine and culture. The ocean, fish and sea salt.” Fish Sauce is infamous for being smelling bad. ... Commercial Fish Sauce stinks because it uses anchovy extracts.” dang i wanted to make some good sauce
