Banh Bao

Where in Vietnam will I find the best Banh Bao? So far I have only seen them in steamers in the grocery stores and they don't look very good.

I'm in Nha Trang for one more day, then Hoi An followed by Hanoi. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

There's a woman named Mai selling them fresh in Dang Tat street. She charges me 10,000 each, but her helpers (she's lost both hands many years ago) charge tourists 20,000.

Why? Because they can, and the tourists don't know any better.

Get them early in the afternoon. One of the two times I got food poisoning was from consuming a bad Bánh Bao in Sai Gon.

There is a lady selling Banh Bao at traffic light coner Nguyen Trai - Nguyen Huu Huan st. 12k-15k Dong.

Nearby the Thanh Chau Bakery at 5 Nguyen Trai st there is one too.
