A delicious pancake must look crunchy, bulging with shrimp dumpling, pork, bean sprouts and decorated with fresh herbs. It is characteristic of most authentic Vietnamese dishes. To enjoy as a local, cut the cake into bite-sized small slices , roll it in lettuce leaves and dip it into a special sauce made by the chef.

Awesome experience of Vietnamese food & culture

“We spend a nice evening with Ngoc on a local street food tour. She picked us up at our Hotel right on time and showed us several great places to eat traditional Vietnamese food. She introduced us to different Vietnamese dishes, answered all our questions and was very keen on us getting a good impression of Vietnamese culture. In turn she was also very interested in our culture and experience of Vietnam. All in all this tour is highly recommendable, especially with Ngoc as a tour guide, who was very friendly. It is a great way to get an introduction into Vietnamese culture.”
