I can hardly believe it! Tonight I'll be in Ho Chi Minh City with Katie!!!
I have been meaning to join Becki and Gene for their favourite Bánh cuốn lady's breakfast. Xuan decided to come to so he was here at 7am. Will said he'd like to come too, but he couldn't wake up. Gene walked out to Van Cao to show us the way, since it's down alleys that twist and turn
The food preparation is done out the front
The rice noodle is a in big thin sheets on the platter in front of her
This version of Bánh cuốn is a plate of rice noodle with a sprinkling of fried onion, a broth with a couple of pork mince balls, fresh salad greens and the usual condiments - green cumcuats, chillies, salt and dipping sauce.
It was Becki's shout... 48.000 dong ($1)
You can see by the length of the fence how large the compound is. Seems that there's something fascinating around every corner...
