Banh Xeo (Crispy Pancake)

Ban xeo is a savoury crepe-like pancake that’s made of rice flour, coconut milk, and turmeric. Pan-fried together with a variety of ingredients such as pork slices, shrimps, sliced onions, bean sprouts, and button mushrooms, this Nha Trang delicacy is best eaten with lettuce, herbs and sweet fermented peanut butter sauce. Great as a snack or appetiser, rice papers are sometimes used by local restaurants to wrap banh xeo with the accompanying condiments.
