Banh cuon has been a favourite dish of mine since I was around 7yo. It was always such a treat for breakfast, the warm rice noodles enveloping pork mince and mushroom over a bed of lettuce, mints, bean sprouts and cha lua; a delicious Vietnamese pork devon. Oh and the burnt onion on top gives it even more flavour.
I’d pour loads and loads of fish sauce on top of everything and devour it all in minutes.
In Sydney it can be hard to find and I only know of a couple of places, Tan Hung Vuong is one and Phu Quoc is the other one.
In the more traditional version of banh cuon the rice cakes are flat rather than round here, but really no complaints here, they taste pretty good.
Not bad for $7.50.
