Stroll down famous food markets like Hồ Thị Kỷ or Hồ Con Rùa and you’ll see specialties wrapped in banana leaves instead of plastic boxes. Banana leaves are gaining in popularity across Asia. Not only do they decompose naturally, without needing further treatment, the leaves emit an appetising aroma that enhances the food they contain.
