About Banh Cuon Saigon
The Eden Center—the dining mecca for expat Vietnamese—can feel labyrinthine even for those who aren’t novices. This charming cafe lies in one of its deepest corners, and it’s a testament to the kitchen that the place is usually full. Banh cuon, the signature dish, is a gelatinous rice crepe with various fillings (the shrimp is superb), topped with bean sprouts and cilantro. Douse it with tangy nuoc mam sauce from a Mason jar.
