(literally "rolled cake") is a dish from northern Vietnam. It is a
crêpe-like roll made from a thin, wide sheet of rice flour filled with
ground pork, minced wood ear mushroom, and other ingredients.
Sides for this dish usually consist of Vietnamese pork
sausage and bean sprouts, with adipping sauce.
The rice sheet in bánh cuon
is extremely thin and delicate. It is a light dish, and is generally eaten for
breakfast everywhere in Vietnam.
