As stated in Part One, BÃ¡nh Cuá»‘n (directly translates to â€œrolled cakeâ€) is rice crepes rolled with minced pork and wood ear mushrooms. Apparently, itâ€™s traditionally eaten as breakfast food but I could eat it any time of day. You dip it in a special dipping sauce and itâ€™s usually garnished with cilantro and sauteed crispy scallions. Part One was my mom making the sauteed scallions. Here is the second and final part. Enjoy the video.
Editing and annotating the video has given me a craving. I guess now that I know how to make these crepes, I can try… OR I can just be a lazy daughter and wait til I go home to Houston next. Hee.
