Bánh Ướt Nóng / Hot Thin Rice Sheets

Pronounced "ban ook", these sheets of rice served hot from a crepe making-like griddle are rolled with cured Vietnamese pork slices and dried shrimp powder, then dipped in a watered down, hot fish sauce / nước mắm (nook muhm). 

It takes a journey into the east end of Nha Trang to find this local specialty.  Direct your driver to Ha Banh Uot on 23 thang 10 street near Cây Số 5 ("kay so nuhm" which translates to "5km east of town").
