Rice Rolls

The website states that Rice Rolls, also known as Bánh cuốn in Vietnamese, are made fresh to order. Diners have the unique opportunity to watch the chef steam the rice sheets and create the rolls in front of their eyes.

According to Michelin, there are two varieties of Rice Rolls available. The more common version is filled with minced pork and black fungus. The second version features a soft poached egg.

Diners can customize their Rice Rolls by adding pork meatloaf and sausage. They can also season their fish sauce dip with a selection of fresh herbs, chili, lime, or garlic slices.
