Golden And DeliciousAnother dish that originates in Hanoi, banh tom is made from battered and deep fried shrimp and sweet potato. The distinctive orange/gold colour comes from the flesh of the potato and turmeric powder in the batter. Wrap the morsels in leaves and herbs and dip into nuoc cham (fish sauce with chilli).
