To taste Banh Xeo of the most unique recipes, you must visit Quang Binh.

It is dipped in water for about 5 hours before being ground. During the two separate grinding processes, water should be added periodically. After that, a little salt and fried onion is added into the mixture. 

The pan used to fry the cake must also be made by the men of Quang Hoa: it is only a little bit bigger than a normal pan; the side is just 1.5 cm high and the bottom is flat. When frying, the fire must beextremely red so that the cakes can “bloom” fully into the desired size and shape.

The banana fish is another part of this exciting dish. The main ingredient is nothing else but Porcelain Bananas (a type of banana that has many seeds) which are not too ripe and not too green. They are peeled and dipped in lemon sauce before being cut into small pieces. 

After that, the bananas are boiled and thenbent into different shapes, such as shrimps or fish. Each of the “fish” is then dipped quickly in the bowl of spices. Finally, all the “fish” are arranged on a plate and fish sauce (with garlic and chili) is poured on so that each piece has an equally spicy taste.

When eating, the xeo cake, the veggies, the salad and the banana fish are wraped inside a piece of rice paper. The cakes taste best when they are still hot. Holding the hot xeo cake in your hands, you will understand why the hotness and the tempting sense of red rice are so wonderful.
