Rasa Malaysia

Wow, these rice cakes look absolutely delish!


Haha, again - awesome. I'm just going to take a pen and notebook and go through your archive and write down all the "must-eat" joints in Hanoi - it's much better than the Lonely Planet's guide will ever be! Regards from Saigon (where the food is good, but not so well documented hehe)


Really enjoy Sticky Rice ... now you've set me off on a search for Banh cuon in Victoria Street, Melbourne.

Hahahah ... HENNO!! That's EXACTLY what I say!!! :)

Thanks for the pix! I will keep drooling till I get my butt back to Vietnam on Dec 15! ;)

Then I will be going out for some serious banh cuon!!


Thanks all.
Henno - the food in Saigon is so well documented. You just don't know where to look. Check this out, especially the archives. http://www.noodlepie.com/
Pieman is no longer with us in Vietnam, at least in body. But his spirit lurks and his legacy is mighty!

A Viet - hope you enjoy your return!


Is that the banh cuon place in the tiny alley near Hang Da Market? I'm not sure if it's the best in the city, but it was recommended, and I ate breakfast there two days in a row when I was in Hanoi!

And by the way, I know what you mean about getting picky. There are about 30,000 places to eat within 5 miles of my house, but I often suffer from the "there's nothing to eat" feeling...

Makes my mouth water.


Austin - this place is to the northern end of the old quarter. I've never heard of the banh cuon near the Hang Da market. Will have to check it out.
