14 Hang Ga, Hoan Kiem, Hanoi, Vietnam

The Overview

The savory, tissue-paper-thin crepes known as banh cuon are a specialty of northern Vietnam, and the family who steams them at 14 Hang Ga—a modest hole-in-the-wall in the city's Old Quarter—serves up some of Hanoi's tastiest. Filled with minced pork and ear mushrooms and topped with fried shallots and fresh sprigs of cilantro, the delicate rolls are cut into soft, melt-in-your-mouth morsels before being dipped into a petite bowl of nuoc mam, or fish sauce, and limes. Not big on breakfast? Banh cuon also doubles as a pre-dinner snack.
