Vietnamese food is one of the best, it’s full of flavours, various and pretty healthy (even though I don’t always pick the healthiest options). In my Top 3, without any hesitation, there are banh cuon, banh xeo, banh bot loc (that I couldn’t find yet in Vientiane so I am open for any of your suggestions). Actually, I love many and many more Vietnamese dishes but the list can be VERY long !
That said, Banh Cuon by Hong Thong fixed two of my cravings, so I just wanted to share with you this place in case you don’t know about it yet.
The place is lovely, and I regret there is no outsdoor seatings in this small piece of green.
Unsurprisingly, I have a Banh Xeo everytime. It is crispy and filled with enough meat and shrimps, which is not always the case elsewhere. And the Banh cuon platter, absolutely divine: an assortment of original, pandan and butterfly pea flower pancakes, filled the original meat and mushrooms mix.
The food is good, you’ll leave the place full and price are more than correct. They vary between 20,000LAK and 40,000LAK average. Definitely the best spot to go for a tasty lunch and dinner.
