Exposed. My poor little slice of bánh tét chuôi, sitting in the work refrigerator wrapped only in clear plastic wrap. The deep red of the cooked bananas and red bean look like raw meat. I wonder if my co-workers will freak out? I try to tuck it behind my tupperware of fresh fruit, out of sight but there’s not much room.
Who cares? If you’re put off by the sight of my bánh tét chuối as you reach for your lunch then you don’t even know what you’re missing.
