Get your stomach to taste this Vietnamese flavor!
Mentioning “Banh Khot”, it is easy to think it is made from thick yeallow batter, filled up with green peas, grease medium-fat coconut milk of Western. But not, “Banh Khot” in Vung Tau is different, it is made from the thin white batter with grease and fresh shrimps or fired shrimps on the top, of course.

Saigon is a mixed-culture mosaic of cuisine from many regions in Vietnam. It’s not hard to find a cuisine from any region that you don’t have to go there to taste.
It means you don’t have to go to the Western Vietnam to taste this food, you can try it in Saigon. In Vietnam, you can easily find Banh Khot sold in fancy restaurants or right out on the street. Vietnamese prefer to sit on tiny plastic stools and ear off flimsy tables with sound of surrounding and having conversations and socializing altogether. I prefer you to try this feeling, that is a good time, my friends.
Banh Khot is very similar to its sister dish, Banh Xeo( Vietnamese sizzling crepes). The two dishes are eaten by wrapping a fried piece in the middle of leafy greens and roll everything up, then dipped in a spicy and sweet sauce. The sauce is also important to create the flavor for this dish. However, the Banh Khot is much smaller, so it is more convenient eating than Banh Xeo.
