Please help me identify this... stuff

So I was eating some Pho today from a place I frequently visit (although that may change now) and it was certainly made differently. In addition to some large chunks of fat, I found these weird spiky things that are certainly not noodles. They smell salty and have a tough noodle like texture and just look alien to me lol.
Can anyone identify this?

it looks like a type of animal stomach cut into strips.

search for cow's stomach, or tripe noodle soup.

Thanks Tom,
I've seen honeycomb tripe before and this was much more of a "spiky/hairy" texture so I guess I dismissed that possibility. It looks like it comes in a few varieties though, so thats most likely correct. Thank you!

It all depends how it is prepared. If it is not cooked correctly it is really tough and tasteless. I usually cook it slowly in a curry sauce

i've had tripe in tomato sauce topped witb grated locatelli cheese (aka trippa alla romana), or tripe parm which is similar but topped with parm and mozzarella cheeses.

i can see how tripe can be cooked for a long time in a broth to tenderize it as is done with the tomato sauce versions, but then noodles and other stuff being added laterto round it out into a soup.

btw, there's different types of tripe. honeycomb and rumen. i think the one you had was rumen.
