Banh Mi

This particular dish has a French touch to it as well. It is more or less a simple snack with yummy greens and your choice of meats, fish or egg sandwiched in a crispy toasted French baguette with pickled vegetables.

Banh Xeo (Crispy Pancakes)

This is not just your regular crepe, instead, this pancake is made of rice flour, coconut milk and turmeric. The filling, again, can be your choice of meats, prawns or egg and vermicelli. This too is quite a heavy but yummy snack to have while exploring the streets of Vietnam!
