Bo bia is only made right after customers’ order. First, the vendor lays two very thin and small pancakes flatly and places on top a sheet of honeycomb then sprinkles them with sesame seeds and desiccated coconut. Then, they roll it up and hand over — it is really that simple. You will not even need a tissue to wipe your fingers, licking them like locals do is also interesting.
While putting two sweet substances together seems like just an excuse, thought has clearly gone into the making process of this snack. The combination of chewy coconut with crunchy honeycomb and soft, slightly moist pancake delivers a tempting textural sensation and the flavors perfectly work together.
