'Banh ep' (Hue-style crepe), made with tapioca flour, pork and herbs never fails to impress visitors to Hue city.

Before it is pressed, the dough is divided into small pellets in line with the pressing mold. The chef will put on top of the dough a few pieces of chopped bacon and meat marinated with spices and cook it on a charcoal stove. Customers can either order chewy or crispy versions of banh ep.

The dish is usually served with pickled papaya, Vietnamese cilantro and cucumber.
