It looks delightful! Seen this on an episode of DDD last nite and had to get up and raid the fridge for a snack at 1am :drool: :P. Here's a pretty good looking recipe I found on the interweb I may have to try soon!!! If anyone tries it before I do or has already, please chime in!

I was just thinking of making these soon.  There is a package of banh xeo flour you can get at the Asian market for a few bucks.  I think you just mix water with it.

Have you tried the pre made mix Chau? In the recipe I linked I like the fact there is coconut milk in it. I have some pulled pork thawed, maybe I'll give it a try tomorrow, got a bathroom to paint that might hamstring me though..... ???

My parents make it often using those packaged mixes.  They are pretty good.  The crepe itself isn't super flavorful.  It's the fixings and dipping sauce that bring in the flavor.

It's done by taste.  I've never measured it but these might be rough estimates.

1 cup water
1/2 cup fish sauce
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup lime juice
2-3 cloves garlic diced
2-3 birds eye chile minced
1-2 T siraracha

Adjust any of the ingredients to taste and refrigerate the unused portion.  Sauce is spooned over the crepe.
