Banh Xeo 46A

     Banh Xeo 46A is a simple outdoor restaurant.  But this street side restaurant has been visited and liked by Anthony Bourdain of No Reservations - TLC.  And so was I.
     If you are on a budget and want to eat authentic Vietnamese food, dine here and observe how the locals eat their famous Vietnamese pancake or banh xeo, so you will know how to enjoy it.  You can watch while they cook the pancakes on a hot rounded pan in a traditional way, using wood and charcoal for burning.

Banh Xeo

     Banh xeo is fried rice flour crepe stuffed with shrimp, pork, bean sprout and herb.  When you eat it, you have to wrap it in a lettuce or radish leaves with some herbs.  Then, dip a little of fish sauce and hot sauce for additional flavor.

Spicy Chicken Wings

     Spicy chicken wings are also delicious.  One order was not enough, so we ordered two plates to satisfy our appetite.

     To complete our meal, we had fresh coconut juice. It has a sweet taste which I like so much!  I even asked the waiter to open the shell so I can eat the meat inside.

     Overall experience? Satisfied and worth a try.  :)
