Went to this well regarded Vietnamese place in South San Jose for lunch and ordered the Banh Xeo or Crepe de Ville. This was my first experience with this dish. It consists of a a very large cripsy omelette-like crepe (more eggy than doughy) folded in half and stuffed with pork loin, prawns, bean sprouts and eaten with a lettuce wrap. It was very good...the crepe was unusually light and the filling was greaseless (the sprouts were pbarely cooked). For such a gargantuan dish, it disappears fast given how light the ingredients are.
Any experience out there with banh xeo? Any places that excel at it?
