Salad roll created in central Vietnam recognized as world’s longest

A huge salad roll prepared by local students and international tourists in the central Vietnamese city of Da Nang last year has been named the world’s longest of its kind.

Asia Pacific Onboard Travel (APOT Asia), a nonprofit of the airline industry in the Asia Pacific region, on Friday afternoon handed the Guinness World Records certificate for the world’s longest “goi cuon” (salad roll) to representatives of Da Nang’s Tourism Promotion Center, the Vietnam National Administration of Tourism said on Tuesday.

The salad roll is a Vietnamese dish which typically consists of pork, prawn, vegetables, “bun” (rice vermicelli), and other ingredients wrapped in “banh trang” (rice paper).

They are served right after being prepared and are not deep fried or cooked on the outside.
