HCM CITY — Bánh Khọt (mini savory pancake) is a great breakfast dish that visitors must try when staying at Vũng Tàu beach in Bà Rịa-Vũng Tàu Province.
The tiny crispy pancake is cooked in small round molds, with other ingredients like pork, mung beans, shallots and coconut milk added on top. The rim should be slightly burnt to add flavor to the tasty treat. The cake is eaten by being rolled in fresh leaves and dunked in fish sauce.
There are many versions of Bánh Khọt such as the Cửu Long (Mekong) Delta Bánh Khọt, which is softer, thicker and usually more yellow due to the addition of turmeric powder.
Vũng Tàu’s Bánh Khọt is flatter, crunchier and is white, with shrimp and shrimp powder on top.
