I was having lunch at the scoffmungussly good banh xeo lean to on Dinh Cong Trang street the other day. I noticed a group of women at the back of the alleyway preparing cha gio (spring rolls) and chao tom (sugarcane wrapped in shrimp paste). This table is also used to prep the herbs, lettuce and mustard leaves that always accompany banh xeo. Click the pics to watch some lo-fi cameraphone filming of how to make cha gio and chao tom. You’ll need Quicktime to view.
