Overlooking Truc Bach Lake, Banh Tom Ho Tay is famous for its scrumptious fried shrimp patties. Its way of processing is rather simple.
Fresh shrimps caught in the West Lake are covered with wheat flour, potato and shrimp patties. The patties are crispy and sweet-smelling and served with pickled vegetables and sweet and sour fish sauce. Besides, it can also be served with salads and vermicelli. The cake is brittle, soft and sweet-smelling; therefore, it is really an appropriate dish for drinking beer. The famous restaurants are always bustling and visitors should not miss the chance to visit Hanoi.
