Banh Cong Co Ut

Vietnamese in Can Tho

One of Can Tho's culinary claims to fame is this restaurant's banh cong, a savoury mung-bean 'muffin' studded with whole shrimp. Three generations of skilled women grate, mix and fry this local favourite. Wrap some in the lettuce and herbs and dunk in the nuoc mam. One is enough but order more just in case.
