3 foods you shouldn’t miss in Nha Trang, Vietnam

To try real Vietnamese street food you’ll have to get out of the tourist centre. In this post, we are going to recommend 3 foods we had tried during our short stay in Nha Trang, and we think you should too!

Duck Hotpot

Vit Tiem 69 Bach Dang is particularly popular for its duck hotpot, which is served with vegetables, rice noodles, chopped lemongrass, as well as Nha Trang’s signature fish sauce. Drawing a predominantly Vietnamese crowd, the menu here is not in English so it’s best to just point out what is ordered by the neighbouring tables. Expect to pay about VND 300,000 for your meal, which is inclusive of drinks, sauce, and vegetables.

Bánh Xèo

Known as Vietnamese crepes (translated as “sizzling cake”), Bánh Xèo is one of the popular snacks widely eaten by the locals as well as tourists. A much as the style of Bánh Xèo is made vary somewhat throughout Vietnam, the ones in Nha Trang often prepared it with seafood.
