Banh khot

"Banh khot" is the closest relative to banh xeo and many restaurants in southern Vietnam serve them as a pair. Unlike banh xeo which is fried on a large pan, banh khot is cooked in small round molds, with other ingredients like pork, mung beans, shallots and coconut milk added on top. The rim should be slightly burnt to add flavor to the tasty treat. Like banh xeo, the cake is eaten by being rolled in fresh leaves and dunked in fish sauce. The southern dish has at least two versions. The Mekong Delta’s banh khot is softer, thicker and usually more yellow due to the addition of turmeric power. Vung Tau’s banh khot is flatter and crunchier and is white, with shrimps and shrimp powder on top.

Banh tom

The dish first appeared in Hanoi in the 1970s and has since become a foody icon of the capital. Anytime people say banh tom, almost everyone will think of West Lake, the popular venue for the deep-fried rice powder cake with shrimp (tom). The authentic West Lake cakes also have pieces of sweet potato to stay crispy.
