Another food item that gained popularity was fried spring rolls, sometimes referred to as 'Nem Ran' in the north and 'Cha Gio' in the south of Vietnam for their mouthwatering blend of flavors and textures. These deliciously crispy appetizers are produced by encasing ground pork, shrimp, veggies, and vermicelli in rice paper and deep-frying it until it turns golden brown. Fried spring rolls are a recurring favorite among fans of street food because they present a pleasant contrast of crispy exteriors and delicate innards, especially when served with dipping sauces and fresh herbs.
