Adress: 14 Pho Hang Ga, Old Quarter, Hanoi, Vietnam.

Banh Cuon is one of Hanoi’s favorite breakfast items and essential to any list of must-try Vietnamese dishes. By itself, the pale white rice batter is silky smooth and soft but otherwise rather bland. Flavor and texture come from a filling of seasoned ground pork, mushrooms, and salad. The rice noodle roll is served with a separate bowl of fish sauce.
