Similar to 'banh beo' because of its varied fillings, banh tieu is popular in Vietnam, Taiwan (China) and China in numerous versions ranging from pork and beef fillings to no filling at all.

Each costs VND4,000 ($0.17).

A stall selling this dish at 43 Do Chieu Street, Ward 1 opens late in the afternoon and guests have to queue up or place an advance order in the morning to buy.
