“Banh Xeo” is one of the classic Vietnamese dishes. It can be known under different names such as Vietnamese crepe as to distinguish it from the French crepe, or Vietnamese half-moon pizza due to its crescent half-moom shape or even Vietnamese burrito. Please see below Phans55’s recipe to make this wonderful dish which is super for all time of the day and every day of the year, but it is best to enjoy it on rainy and cold days.
