Must-try Da Lat Street Food

Banh Can – Vietnamese Mini Pancake

Though Banh Can originates from Central Vietnam, it is now a Da Lat’s specialty. Traditionally, the first step of making Banh Can starts when a mixture of rice flour and water is poured into small black molds. After a couple of minutes of cooking, these tiny cakes are placed neatly in a plate and garnished with spring onion, and eaten with mixed fish sauce.

Other ingredients can be added, such as squid, shrimp, or anchovies to the cake. Both versions are appetizing and can be enjoyed with side dishes like green mango and Vietnamese Meatballs (Siu Mai).

Banh Uot Long Ga – Thin Rice Flour Pancake with Stir-fried Chicken Viscera

This is the most unique dish among all Da Lat street food since you can rarely find it in other parts of Vietnam.
