Banh Xeo is a very familiar rustic cuisine and a representative of Vietnam’s street food. Banh Xeo can be found in many regions when you travel along with this S country, but the Banh Xeo made by the Central region’s people is very different. It has a unique, unmistakable taste and still retains its original flavor since its appearance. The simplicity of the pancake is also reflected in the way people name it. When flour is put into the frying pan, the sound “sizzling – Xeo” is created. And that sound was used to give the name for this dish. This pancake has a crispy crust outside, wrapping sliced pork, shrimp and some bean sprouts inside. When you eat, you will use rice paper to roll the pancake with raw vegetables and dip it into a special sauce made from pork liver, minced pork, roasted peanuts, and sesame.
