What we say: 4 stars

This is where you can try banh cuon, a thin, steamed pancake rolled around a filling usually consisting of a mixture of diced pork and mushrooms.

Like most street stalls, they are light on decoration and you are seated on a plastic stool in an open-air dining area, but what it lacks visually is washed away by the quality of the banh cuon.

They also make a variety of fresh fruit juices and have street prices that can't be beat.
