Banh Xeo is a crispy crepe named after the sound created when the rice batter hits the smoking hot cast iron skillet. The beautiful balance derived from a perfect combination between veggies and meat or seafood stuffed in the crunchy light batter makes this dish a must-try for all foodies.

This Vietnamese crepe is not a fronthy delicacy but a harmony of colors and flavors. It has an irresistible visual with the green of chopped scallions, the orange of tasty prawns and the white of bean sprouts standing out in the vibrant yellow hue of the crepe. The traditional way to eat this dish is rolling a piece of crepe in a rice paper along with lettuce and some Vietnamese herbs then dipping the roll into a special tangy sauce. Beside the rice batter recipes and fresh ingredients, dipping sauce is also an indispensable part of this dish. It ties all the textures together, capitalizing on the flavors to the fullest.

There exist some slight variations of Bánh xèo by regions and all of them are worth craving. In the South, Bánh xèo are made in a larger size with more veggies and mung beans. A southern Bánh xèo can fill an adult’s growling stomach. While in the Central, people are familiar with smaller Bánh xèo without mung beans. The texture and the sauce differ as well depending on each regional preferences.
