Boil the water for the rice noodles. When the water is boiling, add the noodles and cook as instructed. Once noodles are soft, drain water off in sieve and rinse with cold water, then place in 2 separate bowls for serving.
In the meantime, heat oil in a pan or wok over medium heat. Add garlic, ginger and salt. Saute until fragrant. Then add minced pork and onion. Cook or stir fry until pork is cooked through.
Add water, stock cube and fish sauce and gently bring to the boil.
Finally, add 1/2 tbsp lemon juice and stir. Immediately pour hot soup over the noodles, and if you want, sprinkle with fresh coriander as a finishing touch.
