This was a new dish for me. I didn’t know what to expect when I read “Vietnamese pancake”, but it sure wasn’t these thick delicious morsels. They had a soft, almost custardy texture but were more firm and savory. The shrimp were a little overcooked though.
Omg! And I certainly didn’t expect an entire bowl of all these greens for wrapping around the pancakes before dipping them into the sweetened fish sauce mixture. Although I didn’t know what everything was, they sure tasted great!
