A novel idea: Tinfoil BBQ and DIY rice-paper rolls and BBQ in tinfoil. To those uninitiated Bánh cuốn are Vietnamse rice noodle rolls. Comprised of silky soft rice roll, usually stuffed with pork and wood-ear-mushroom. Quán nướng Giấy Bạc gives you the options to make and stuff the rolls yourself. They have seemingly re-invented the roll, specifically the fillings as well as the interactive element, and they have done so incredibly successfully. It’s unquestionably become a huge hit, as any passerby will see, at noon on weekdays it’s packed with office workers chowing down happily. When you order the DIY Bánh cuốn, they will bring you a pile of small plates, each with a personal layer of soft rice paper wraps for you to use as you wish. Those options for the fillings are as follows:
Rice Roll Fillings
The menu includes the following to fill the rice paper rolls:
- Sesame Grilled Pork
- Pork Sausage
- Lemon-leaf grilled Squid
- Lemon-grass grilled beef
- Grilled Pickled Sour Pork Sausage ( our favorite )
- Shredded mango
The cost for each small plate of fillings is 20-30K
Tinfoil Chicken BBQ Swimming in Cheese
The second part of the menu that we love is the tinfoil BBQ section: a form of “wet BBQ” as the protein is usually bathed in a sauce and cooked over charcoal. We usually get the chicken with green pepper sauce and cheese. The pepper sauce is decadent, and is complemented beautifully by the melted cheese covered chicken which is cooked to tender perfection. For the small portion (pictured here) the price is 110K VND and for the larger size its about 149K VND.

For two people we recommend one small portion of chicken and three portions of rice paper rolls ( each will get about three whole rolls).
We can’t sign off without mentioning their wonderful tropical salad with a Thai twist: Steamed corn with green mango and a salted egg. The salted egg is very salty, we recommend breaking it up into pieces and mixing it well with the corn and mango elements. Price 90K
