Bánh bèo Huế

During a cooking class in Huế, our instructor Miss Thuy taught us how to prepare for and cook four Vietnamese dishes. One of these was bánh bèo, a gelatinous rice cake topped with minced dried shrimp, green onions, garlic, and chili peppers. Miss Thuy noted that out of all the people who learned to make this dish, only 20% of them expressed that they liked it. Many disliked it because of the gelatinous texture. Well, apparently I became part of the 20% that liked this unique dish and certainly ate more than just two or three that evening 😉
