Banh xeo at Lee's Bakery

Available at Lee's Bakery !
A common Vietnamese snack, this folded crêpe made with rice flour, coconut milk, and tinged yellow with peppery turmeric is filled with ground pork, shrimp, and crunchy steamed bean sprouts. Cut off a chunk and wrap it in one of the lettuce leaves served on the side along with fresh basil, mint, and cilantro. Be sure to dunk each bite in Lee's Nuoc cham, a classic dipping sauce made with garlic, chiles, fish sauce, and lime juice. While choosing a favorite version of banh xeo is a lot like choosing your favorite child, bountiful sections of an irresistibly caramelized exterior and fluffy texture put Lee's version at the top of our list. $6.95.
