EXPERIENCES

Vietnamese usually eat Banh Xeo by hand, roll a little Banh Xeo with a few vegetables, dipping into the sauce and enjoy. Due to the rather big cake, a pancake you can roll into 5 -10 rolls.

You look at the sign that shows the words "Bánh Xèo" that's  Banh Xeo restaurant. You should choose the restaurants which have many natives are eating, it would be better.
