Banh ran mat Hang Chieu
Banh rat mat is the Vietnamese version of a doughnut, but without the hole in the middle. The cake is made from sticky rice flour, stuffed with steamed mung beans. There is one stall located on Hang Chieu street in the Old Quarter known to sell the best and most authentic version of this cake. You can choose to eat it covered with sugar syrup or honey on top, or even plain if you do not have a sweet tooth – and all of these just for VND$5,000 (USD$0.30)!
