Vietnamese street food : banh ruoc (pork fluff rolls)


Sometimes when you travel you find things that are just a bit unusual. I normally like to browse supermarkets to find the odd snack food. This time, a trip to the bakery introduced me to  bánh ruốc, or ‘Pig fluff rolls’ as I have now renamed them, it flows off the tongue slightly better.


In texture, it’s a bit like meaty candy floss and I expected it to taste like next to nothing, but it strangely has an incredibly meaty taste. I can only attribute that to additives.

I dread to think how a product like this is made, but it makes for a nice meaty bun.
