As some of you might aware, I have written quite abit about Vietnamese food such as the BBQ & steamboat. The latest installation, I bring you Banh Xeo, something akin to crepe.
We went to this place called Banh Xeo 46A, an old school place by the roadside, with extended roof however. The place is packed with mostly Vietnamese, but I did see a table of mat salleh smacked somewhere in there tho.
As you can see on the bottom 2 pictures, they serve BBQ prawn and fish too.
This is what we came for, Banh Xeo, it’s got shrimp, bean sprout, and some other stuff in it. As with most Vietnamese dishes, it came with a generous serving of fresh vegetables. We also ordered fish, and some fried pork that came with something like very soft pohpiah wrapper.
The way you eat Banh Xeo, as shown by my Vietnamese colleague.
- Tear a serving of the “crepe”
- Wrap some fresh vege over it
- Add some sauce and maybe some chilli
- Indulge your senses
Typical tourists never get these kinda true Vietnamese food, it was awesome.
