Bánh cuốn Tiến Hưng (Savory rice rolls)
If you’re from northern Vietnam you must have familiarized yourself with bánh cuốn, a rice noodle roll made from a thin, wide sheet of steamed fermented rice batter, filled with seasoned ground pork, minced wood ear mushroom (or cotton meat as a variation), and minced fried shallots. Sides for this dish usually consist of chả lụa (Vietnamese pork sausage), sliced cucumber, and bean sprouts, with the dipping sauce called nước chấm. This light and delicious northern dish has made its name all over the country and even overseas.
I’ve heard many people complain that Banh cuon Tien Hung nowadays has lost its authenticity and is not as good as it used to be in the old days. Nevertheless, there must be a reason why it’s still very crowded, especially on weekends there is always a long row of cars parking outside.
