Banh Bao (Steamed buns)

If you wish to try it, look for either a person on a bicycle which on one side of his bike is a wood fire burning, and a steamer located on top. This has the buns cooking inside.
I also saw ladies carrying them over their shoulders!

I didn't try one, even though they looked alright. My guide stopped by the pushbike (one in photo) and showed me what was cooking, certainly different!
