Serve with plenty of steamed bean sprouts and julienned cucumbers, cha lua (Vietnamese ham)
andnuoc mam cham
on the side. Some restaurants here in the US also add pork floss, banh tom
as additional toppings. For the banh cuon Thanh Tri dipping sauce you can use the same nuoc mam cham, however, in Vietnam, it's dipped in straight up fish sauce with a wedge of lime and some chili.
Banh cuon is our favorite dish when we want to eat something light and flavorful. While the traditional method my mom uses may not be practical for all, it's a skill we admired and marveled. But try it with the nonstick pan method and enjoy this great Vietnamese delicacy!
