So what did we order? We ordered the Vietnamese pancake which is filled with bean sprouts, shrimp and served with lettuce and basil and the special sauce. Originally when we ordered a pancake, I thought it would be like Korean or Chinese pancakes where it is served on a dish and you just cut it up in pieces to eat. With a Vietnamese pancake it looks more like an omelette and the special way to eat it is to take a piece of lettuce and wrap a piece of pancake with the basil and sauce. If you wrap it properly, everything stays together. As a beginner, I am not a good wrapper and had a shrimp fly out of the bottom of my lettuce wrapped pancake. Fun times! Kind of feel like being a kid again eating a Vietnamese pancake.
