With whom can I enjoy Chợ Giồng’s savoury fried pastry?
These lines mention bánh giá (vá), a staple savoury fried pastry in Chợ Giồng, Tiền Giang Province.
There are 2 explanations to its name, coming from:
(1) One essential ingredient: beansprouts (giá);
(2) The frying tool (vá) in which prepared ingredients (batter, meat, shrimp, beansprout, mung bean, etc.) are contained during the deep-frying process.
