Some More Banh Uot

Apparently I am on a banh uot kick - night time snack again, and another futile quest to get some steamed buns.

Steamed buns are sold out of the same sort of steamers as banh uot, so I asked the first vendor that I saw with a metal steamer pyramid.

It came up as banh uot and the rice based dumpling that you see in the foreground. For a lack of a better description, a rice flour shu mai.

The price was about 85% of what I usually pay in the corner restaurant. So perhaps I paid an ignorance tax. But I'm hungry.
