Nom Banh Chao/ Xeo
We ran out of beer so I used Coco Rico in the batter. I was going to use Vodka but then I realized we only have lemon and raspberry flavors. I don’t think that would’ve tasted right. Haha. The soda helped make the crepes crispier. I think beer would’ve been better though. I love the roasted coconut in the filling with the minced meat. (My mom said the roasted coconut is a Battambang thing.) Thanks to my mom’s green thumb we always have fresh herbs on hand and she sprouted her own bean sprouts in just 4 days. Mine took a week. I’ll follow her method next time.
Ahhh man. This is all I’ve been eating for the last two days. Sooo good. :)
