Banh hoi is similar to rice vermicelli, and is made from rice flour into very fine strands.
The cake is most delicious when it is soft and covered with a thin layer of oil to get rid of the raw flour smell.
The dish is served hot with a sprinkle of chives on top. Pork tripe and pork tripe porridge are also added. The price ranges from VND25,000 to VND40,000 (US$1 –US$1.7).
