$1-$1.50 » At first glance, they look like funky green Belgian waffles but their beguiling aroma tells you something different. This traditional street food can be found at two Vietnamese eateries, Tay Do and Café Thao Mi. The green hue comes from pandan, a palmlike plant. Its nutty, floral flavor comes from pandan and coconut cream.

To ring in the Lunar New Year, Tay Do will feature a traditional dragon dance and fireworks display Feb. 14 at 2 p.m. Get there early to save a spot!

Tay Do, 3825 S. Redwood Road, West Valley City; 801-972-4700; Café Thao Mi, 1773 W. 4100 South (in Carriage Square), Taylorsville; 801-906-0120.
