1. Clear Dumplings with Shrimp and Pork (bánh bột lọc)
This dish includes dumplings made of manioc powder, lean pork, and shrimp (which remains available in all Huế markets). The attractive, transparent dumplings reveal a red shrimp and a slice of brown pork stuffed inside. The preparation is neither expensive nor time-consuming but does require proper experience. Huế residents serve bánh bột lọc with yellow bread crumbs, chilli sauce, and the stock from boiled shrimp, which is used for a specially prepared fish sauce.
