See also: bánh bó
Shortened from bánh vú bò (“cow udder cake”) < bánh (cake) + vú bò (cow udder) < vú (breast) + bò (cow).
According to a popular folk etymology, this term instead comes from bánh + bò (to crawl), referring to how the cake "crawls" up to the rim of the bowl when steamed to completion.
