Banh Trang Cuon Deo and Banh Trang Mam Ruoc

Considering one of the classic Phan Thiet dishes, this delicious rolled-up thingie was a bit difficult to find. 

Following the original directions I was given proved fruitless, so we walked around pointing at the words I’d carefully printed in my notebook with all the appropriate tone markers: bánh tráng cuốn dẻo and bánh tráng mắm ruốc.

We were excitedly given directions that I thought meant around the corner near the red cafe. But we couldn’t find a red cafe. 

We did stumble upon an amazing little temple that was celebrating Buddha’s birthday and we decided we were happy enough with that find. 

Then as we headed back to the main street, we noticed a lady cooking something that smelled incredibly delicious. Closer inspection revealed we’d found our banh trang!

These things tasted AMAZING. A thin sesame-studded rice cracker is coated with a sweet tangy sauce, which makes the cracker pliable. 

It’s then filled with fermented pork, quail egg, pickled carrot and radish and green onion, rolled and crispied up on the tiny charcoal-burning barbecue.
