Banh Khoai – Pancakes are the world’s favorite breakfast. They are usually flat, round and topped with flavorful syrup, fruits, jam, chocolate chips or meat. There are several versions of pancakes all over the world depending on the country’s culture and preferences. Vietnam has a lot of variations of pancakes as well. The best tasting ones are found in the Central Vietnam.
One of the most unique pancakes of Vietnam is the Banh Khoai of Hue. Pancakes literally means favorite cake. This delicious fried pancake is made of rice flour, corn and sticky rice powder, shrimp, Vietnamese sausage, pork, bean sprout, carrot, green papaya and egg. Instead of being served as the usual form, folded in half just like the Banh Xeo, Banh Khoai is being served open faced.
Banh Khoai is distinctive not only with its appearance but also with its taste with the help of the famous Hue style special sauce. It is a little greasy so this is best eaten when it is still hot or during cold weather. But for tourists who do not have much time in the city, one or two of these Pancakes will definitely worth the carbs.
