One of my favourite snacks in Saigon is Banh Cuon (Steamed rice rolls). It is a popular local breakfast item and is similar to Singapore’s Chee Cheong Fun.
[Right - Cha Lua] The Vietnamese sausage is an interesting variation to the ones we are familiar with. Cha Lua is made of pork and starch – It has a unique taste and texture. I can hardly taste the meat inside – most likely the starch content is very high. I will be happy just to have my Banh Cuon plain with the dipping sauce (I think it’s a combination of fish sauce, water, sugar & chili) .
