"Banh cuon", I think, is usually served in 2 main versions: hot and cool, but they're both made in the same ways.
In the South, people prefer cool "ba'nh cuon" with various ingredients:gia' (bean sprouts), many kinds of sausage thingie (cha lua, cha chien - fried sausage), spring rolls, mint... and sweeter "nuoc cham"


Thanks Lena. Nice to get the southern perspective. So this version, by your definition, would be the 'cool' ban cuon?

Hi Mark. is it you, my teacher at Acet ? :d
Surprisingly, after spending for an hours surfing the internet, i have found this site and seen your clip from National Geographic about Pho in Hanoi.
I just want to say that I am a fan of Banh Cuon and I was impressed abt your writing :d
