The classic choice is the traditional rice paper rolls. These thin and translucent sheets serve as the foundation for the iconic Vietnamese summer rolls, also known as fresh spring rolls. Made from a mixture of rice flour, water, and salt, traditional rice paper rolls boast a delicate texture that becomes wonderfully pliable when soaked in water.
Their neutral taste allows the fillings to shine through, making them the perfect vessel for fresh herbs, vermicelli noodles, succulent shrimp, tender pork, and crisp vegetables. Dip them in a tangy peanut sauce or fish sauce, and you’ll experience a burst of flavors that epitomizes the essence of Vietnamese cuisine.
