I love this bánh tét - a sticky rice cake in cylinder shape, sometime big and long, sometime shorter and slimmer, I do prefer not too small as the quality is far from good!
Bánh tét in Mekong Delta, more colorful and with salted egg yolk!
Traditional bánh tét - filled with simple but tasty mung beans paste!
Talking about this savory (and sometime sweet flavor) cake - we have a legend which related to our first King, thousands of years ago! The cake is a symbol of the Heaven, and another one, also sticky rice cake but in square shape, from the North, symbolized the Earth! This is a good educational story for children to remember our history! We learn it when we were kids and it's quite easy to find, this story, in many site about Vietnamese traditional food!
Bánh tét with banana - my favorite, I bought from Cần Thơ market - Mekong Delta
