Banh trang tron (mixed dry pancake)

If you are in Ho Chi Minh City (also called Saigon), you can find ‘banh trang tron’ everywhere on streets, especially nearby schools. This is one of specialty food in the Southern Vietnam. I stayed in Ho Chi Minh City for more than a year when I studied my first year at university there, and really fall in love with this snack.

I’m so happy to find it here in Da Nang and the place is (also) at the street corner. That suits the price of 10,000 VND (~ 50 cent) per bowl which can fill your stomach. In Saigon, it is sold in plastic bags, but if you eat in, they serve in bowls so that it can be ‘a bit’ cleaner. If you’re not familiar with street food, you can get sick easily. However, why not give it a go, and see how yummy it is 🙂

(Well, I can’t guarantee the food to be hygiene, looking at where dishes are washed…)

(What to expect: dry pancake, green mango, balut, peanuts, herbs, pork’s liver, dry chilli…)

It might be the only place for ‘banh trang tron’ in Da Nang while it’s very popular in Ho Chi Minh City. If you are craving for the snack, it’s on Le Duan Street, opposite the Fahasa Bookstore (300-302 Le Duan, Da Nang, Vietnam)
