Rolled Rice Pancake - Hanoi Local Food -- Eating
This is not something you can normally find in big restaurants or hotels in Hanoi.
To eat, dip a section of rolled noodle goodness into the accompanying warm fish sauce broth, brightened with a squeeze of fresh lime.
Where to find it?
A short walk north of Hang Da Market and Hang Dieu St. around the Old Quarter Hanoi will bring you to "Banh cuon Thanh Van", just look for the "banh cuon" station - wo large covered steaming pots - out front along the sidewalk. With only 6 tables nestled inside the small open storefront, the pace never slows. Serving 7AM-1PM and 5PM-11PM.
- No. 14 Hàng Gà St., between Hang Ma St. and Hang Vai in Hanoi. It is located on the west side of the street, not far from where the street name changes from Hang Cot St. to Hang Ga St.
- The restaurant "Quan An Ngon", No.18 Phan B?i Châu St., also does a very respectable version of "banh cuon".
