BTO – Two traditional cakes of Binh Thuan province, named “Banh hon” and “Banh quai vac” have excellently won the A prize at the Southern Folk Cake Festival for the 11th time in 2024 in Can Tho city. The two above-mentioned cakes are processed by chef Mai Van Linh (from the Professional Chef Association of the province).

The ingredients for making “bánh hòn” include glutinous rice flour, tapioca starch, grated coconut from Rang (Phan Thiet) served with peanut salt; “bánh quai vạc” is made from rice, tapioca starch, and Binh Thuan sea shrimp as filling, served with chili fish sauce prepared from delicious Phan Thiet fish sauce. Besides introducing the unique cakes of Phan Thiet - Binh Thuan, “bánh hòn” and “bánh quai vạc” were decorated attractively amidst a model of the Ca Ty river, water tower, and the Tran Hung Dao and Le Hong Phong bridges made from vegetables.
