"Banh gat gu" (Nodding rolls) in Quang Ninh
   

Banh gat gu (Nodding rolls) are a specialty of Tien Yen District, the northern province of Quang Ninh.


The rolls are made from sticky rice powder, with sizes similar to banh cuon (steamed rice paper rolls). The dish is often served with minced pork and chicken fat sauce.

These rolls seem to 'nod' repeatedly when lifted off a plate, hence their name. The price is VND30,000 per portion.
