In Ha Long, steamed rice paper rolls (banh cuon) are eaten with squid cakes instead of pork cakes or grilled pork as in other places in the north, creating a whole new style.

Hot banh cuon with minced meat, wood ear, or prawns, are served with sweet and sour fish sauce and chewy squid cake.

Squid cakes are often chosen by tourists as a souvenir. Squid meat is ground or hand-pounded to maintain its character. Squid cakes molded and deep-fried with the right heat are golden brown and boast a pleasing aroma.
