So my father spent some time in Angers, France in the eighties and he still talks about this amazing dish he had a Vietnamese restaurant there. It was a mixture of shrimp and pork, covered with (possibly shredded?) coconut and lightly battered and fried (but it wasn't greasy). It came on a stick and it was about three inches long. That's all he can remember at this point other than the fact that it was amazing. At first, I thought it might be a variation of bánh xèo but he said there was no bean sprouts inside. What could it be? I would love to be able to recreate this dish for him.
