Banh Khoai at Hue Oi

Bánh Khoái, a distinct dish from Huế - The Old Imperial Capital of Vietnam.

.

Some say this dish...like many others... was created to fulfill the Emperor's extreme demand for tasty food😋.

.

Bánh Khoái literally translated means: "happy cake" where it is possible Bánh Khoái gets this name because it resembles a big smile 😄 when Bánh Khoái is folded like a "Taco".

.

What's the difference between Bánh Khoái from Huế, Vietnam and Bánh Xèo from South Vietnam?

.

Bánh Khoái looks similar to Bánh Xèo so it's easy to assume they are the same. Bánh Khoái is a distinct Huế dish. It's usually a little smaller and crispier (stays crispy too!) as well as thicker than Bánh Xèo. Plus it comes with a special sauce that makes all of the difference. The wildly popular Southern dish, Bánh Xèo is usually eaten with fish sauce.
