Banh Bot Chien is actually a food with Chinese roots (Chiuchow or Trieu Chau). It literally means fried powder cake, a rice flour cake that is fried with eggs . It’s popular with school children and the stalls serving this fast food concoction are usually found near schools where children walk to and from.
My uncle picked some up for me this morning near a local school. I wanted to try it out since it sounded great but I thought this batch was a bit bland and too greasy for breakfast. I got tired of it after eating about half the box.
