Though the alley is mostly quiet, customers usually opt for takeout rather than eating in. As the afternoon progresses, a small queue routinely forms in front of the stall, so you’d better come early.

To prepare the simple dish, first mix the rice flour with limewater, adding salt to taste. Then, cook the mixture, making sure no clotting occurs. As the mixture thickens, add a small amount of cooking oil and peanuts, usually right near the end.

The rice flour mixture can then be scooped onto plates to cool and set.

Served with well-seasoned shrimp paste, big eaters could devour 3-4 plates of banh duc at once. With the dish prepared in advance, customers are free to order as much as they desire.
