Sandworm Cakes Stall

Recommendation by Lemi

Follow-up your breakfast brains with a special pancake in Hanoi, Vietnam! The street vendors in Hanoi, Vietnam scoop up live sandworms from a crate and into the batter, in full view of every passer-by. The writhing worms are commonly found at low tide, or in the case of just outside Hanoi, raised in ponds like shrimp. Get them hot off the griddle as the vendors make everything fresh streetside. The pancakes are savory with a crunchy bite due to the worm’s shrimp-like shell. The briny flavor from a life underwater, is infused with herbs and just the right sprinkling of salt.
