Vietnamese bread is really diverse and there are always new versions. Not long ago, the online community had a fever before the crocodile bread, also known as the giant bread because this bread is up to 60cm long and weighs up to 1.5 kg.
Large bread is of course an advantage but the shape of an alligator is what makes this bread so popular. Currently, there are many places to make crocodile bread, but people still like to find the first place to give birth to this crocodile baby in An Giang to enjoy.
Crocodile bread, the creation of a baker in An Giang
In the process of making cakes, Mr. Thanh – the owner of a bakery in An Giang discovered that he could shape the loaf from monotony. After many times of researching and making the lines more beautiful, Mr. Thanh finally produced the first crocodile bread.
The ingredients for making crocodile bread are like regular bread, mainly flour, but you can add some spices such as sugar and sesame on the surface to increase the delicious taste. The most important and extreme step in this process is baking. Due to the large volume, a batch of cakes needs to bake for up to 3 hours. Such a batch can only bake 6 loaves of crocodile bread. That said, it takes a lot of effort and time to make this crocodile.
Diners are also quite fastidious, the crocodile baby shape must be a bit fat, the limbs are uniform, the face must also be a little cute, then customers will love to choose to buy. To do this is also a process and requires workers to have a lot of experience because they must understand the breadth’s expansion.

The purpose is to display in the store, but did not expect that this crocodile bread will bring luck to Mr. Thanh’s bread shop. Thinking that the size and weight are somewhat larger than that of a normal loaf would make alligator bread difficult to consume, but the reality is quite the opposite. Every day, many customers come to buy this crocodile bread. During peak days, his shop sometimes sells more than 100 fish.
