West Lake Shrimp Pancake

Visitors who used to go to Hanoi will eagerly seek a chance to enjoy West Lake shrimp fried pancake, a speciality of this place, which can make a great impression. The reason is not only in shrimp pancake itself, but also in the beautiful scene at West Lake.

It is great to enjoy shrimp pancake at West Lake at sunset in summer. The pink shrimp from the West Lake fresh water on light brown crackers seems to be very crispy.

The sweetness, aroma of shrimp, the delicious taste of crackers and sour, spicy sauce with the belostomatid essence all remind of the bland flavour at the tip of the tongue. The dinner could take a bite of the cake together with cold beer, and enjoy the nice smell coming from the stove and the breeze blowing from the lake. Then people may seek somewhere in their memory the fairy tale about the Golden Buffalo on the way looking for his lost mother, which created the West Lake.

Life has changed. The ways of selling and enjoying shrimp fried pancakes are also different from the previous ones. However, the shrimp fried pancake of West Lake still keeps its traditional flavour and taste so that whoever wanting to enjoy is surprised at the hot, cracker cake dipped in salty, sweet, sour and spicy sauce./.
