Ho Chi Minh City HCMC Saigon I always wondered how they made these things! I still don't know exactly but...

The one woman spreads this slurry of rice-water on what looks like a hot stone (but why doesn't the slurry stick? That's the question.) She covers the first container for as long as it takes her to open the second one, retrieve the cooked skin and put it on the plate, and re-coat the stone. Then she opens the first and continues the process 1-2-1-2 crying out for carpal-tunnel injury.

The other woman cuts it in four parts on the plate, puts in some of the meat mixture, and folds it up. The restaurant was packed with people slurping up these babies as fast as they could make them.
