Durian pepper cake – a unique snack that challenges the taste buds
Durian “fans” who don’t know about the durian pepper cake are really regretful. This unique cake was invented by Huynh and his wife 6 years ago. Who would have thought that thanks to this strange combination that gradually became a brand, whenever it comes to durian pepper cake, one must visit the banh pepper cart in this Chinatown to eat to satisfy the craving.
When I was curious to try it, I realized that this is a small pepper cake truck parked modestly in a street corner, and the person who sells and bakes the cake is only an elderly couple who are kneading the dough and making the cake very well skilled and proficient.
Auntie’s cake stall is open for sale from about 13 pm every day. The shop owner kneaded the dough and molded the cake continuously from the time the shop opened until about 20 o’clock, it was all gone. One day around 19 o’clock, the shop had no more cakes. Sometimes you have to wait for a long time at off-hours – when the carts are most crowded. So if you want to comfortably enjoy the food, you can visit here at 2pm – 4pm.

Especially, it seems that due to keeping its own secret, the cakes here made “all” are soft, spongy, evenly-flavored, and the crust is crisp when bought and eaten on the spot.
