Sampling great Nha Trang dishes is a must-do for any first-time visitor to one of Vietnam’s most beautiful coastal towns. Not only can you enjoy a great abundance of fresh seafood, Nha Trang also offers its own unique takes on quintessential Vietnamese recipes such as spring rolls and curries.

#1 - Nem Nuong (grilled sausage)

Nem nuong is a specialty of Khanh Hoa Province (where Nha Trang City is located). It is the name of the main element of the dish – grilled pork sausage. Beside Nha Trang, nem nuong of Ninh Hoa (a district in Khanh Hoa province) is also popular and you will recognize that some nem nuong restaurants located in Nha Trang are from Ninh Hoa.

The sausage itself is flavored with chopped shallots, crushed garlic, fish sauce, sugar, and black pepper. Nem nuong is served according to how many people sit down to enjoy it. In a portion, you will have a dish of nem nuong, a dish of vegetables, a dish of rice paper wrappers, and a bowl of dipping sauce. When I first tried this kind of food, my mother said to me that the deliciousness of nem nuong depends mostly on how yummy the dipping sauce is, which is mainly made of fish sauce, minced pork, and lime water. After several times trying nem nuong in different places, I admit my mother is absolutely right. I found the best restaurants with the best dipping sauces (thanks mom) and good nem nuong to compliment it.

  • Address: 39 Nguyen Thi Minh Khai Street
  • Price: around 40,000 VND per portion

#2 - Goi Ca Mai (deep herring salad)

Nha Trang citizens often treat their guests to goi ca mai to show their hospitality because it requires lots of time and effort to prepare. Deep herring (ca mai in Vietnamese) is the size of a thumb, flat, has no scales, and it’s less smelly than much other fish out there. This kind of fish is only used to make the salad.

Deep herrings should be really fresh, just plucked from the sea. The most time-consuming part of the process is ripping the bone out. After that, the chef will mix the fish with lime water, tamarind, sour star fruit, or vinegar. Then continue to mix in ground roasted soybeans, chopped onions, chopped garlic, cilantro, and perilla. Once again, the dipping sauce, which is usually made from the fishbone broth, will determine the deliciousness of the dish. Don’t worry, I have picked restaurants for both tasty salad and dipping sauce.

+ Goi Ca Ha Ra

  • Price: 30,000 – 70,000 VND

#3 - Bun Cha Ca (grilled fish rice noodles)

Mother Nature gifted Nha Trang with both beautiful scenery and a sea plentiful with seafood; thus, Nha Trang citizens have invented many wonderful dishes made with products from fishing. One of those is cha ca – grilled fish. To make it simple, cha ca is minced fish marinated with flavors, then shaped into balls or flat circles and grilled.

Bun cha ca is simply noodles with cha ca soup. Locals make the soup of cha ca, adding pineapple and tomato to create the sweet and sour taste. Finally, the noodles are put into the soup and we have a bowl of tasty bun cha ca.

#4 - Banh Canh Cha Ca (Vietnamese udon with grilled fish)

When I was a kid, my grandma sold banh canh cha ca for breakfast at her house, so this is my most favorite food. Banh canh cha ca in Nha Trang tastes so different compared to other places in Vietnam because it reminds me of my childhood here with my grandma. This dish is a bit different from bun cha ca (mentioned above), though they both have cha ca. The sweetness of the soup of banh canh cha ca is completely made from fish broth. Banh canh is also different from bun (noodles); it’s very similar to udon noodles of Japan which are thicker and easier to eat than noodles.

As you know, the Vietnamese use chopsticks when we eat most things, especially noodles and the like. However, in Nha Trang, people don’t use chopsticks to eat banh canh cha ca, they usually use a spoon instead.

  • Address: at Hai Ba Trung Street, opposite Dam market gate, open daily from 5 PM to 3 AM
  • Price: 20,000 – 25,000 VND

#5 - Bun Sua (jellyfish noodles)

This dish should be called bun cha ca sua instead of bun sua for short. It is made of bun – noodles, cha – cha ca or grilled fish, ca – fish, and sua – jellyfish. The soup is created in the same way it’s prepared in bun cha ca. Now just add jellyfish! The jellyfish used to cook this dish should be as small as a thumb or two fingers, colored milky, and with thick edges. To find this kind of jellyfish, the fishermen have to go really far offshore.

During the summer, eating a bowl of bun sua helps release the heat inside your body due to the effect of jellyfish. People can fish jellyfish all year round, but the most delicious season to eat this dish is late spring and early summer.

#6 - Banh xeo muc Nha Trang (sizzling cake with squids of Nha Trang)

Banh xeo was named after the sound it makes during preparation: xeo (pronounced like say-o), the sound when we put rice flour into an oiled pan. Banh xeo is a popular food throughout Vietnam, but banh xeo muc is a specialty of only Nha Trang. Usually, banh xeo is made with pork and shrimp. You wrap it up in rice paper and dip into the dipping sauce. Nha Trang people use muc –  squid instead, and we don’t eat it with rice paper wrappers. We dip banh xeo directly into the sauce using chopsticks.

  • Address: 6 Thap Ba Street
  • Price: 20,000 – 40,000 VND

#7 - Banh can Nha Trang

This is a food that I ate almost every day when I lived in Nha Trang because my grandma sold it along with banh canh cha ca. Banh can is a special food of provinces in south-central Vietnam (Khanh Hoa, Ninh Thuan, Binh Thuan). This food has a small circular shape like banh khot of provinces in southern Vietnam, but banh can is healthier because it doesn’t use oil. It’s a kind of grilled rice flour cooked in a special heater made of earthenware. While banh khot is mixed with pork and shrimp, banh can is a mix with eggs, and this will give banh can a really luring smell.

To eat banh can, we use chopsticks and dunk it into the sauce (until it’s filled with it). What makes a tasty banh can are the rice and the dipping sauce: rice should be soft and sticky, the sauce must not be too salty or tasteless.

Luong Son is a fishing village in Nha Trang City. To reach Luong Son, you have to follow Tran Phu Street along the beach to the north to Pham Van Dong Street; after passing a short pass, you will reach Luong Son.

Pro tip: the scenery of the pass is extremely splendid, you can have a broad view over Nha Trang Bay on your way to eat some delicious snails!

Luong Son is famous for shellfish because it has various types and it’s always fresh. You can eat dishes made of scallop, horn snail, oyster, clam, sweet snail, and so on.

Most of the snail food stalls are located in small alleys, so I suggest you go with a local who knows the street well.

Vietnam would scrap the Covid-19 testing requirement for all arrivals starting Sunday, May 15th 2022, Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh has directed.

In a document issued Friday, the Prime Minister requested the Ministry of Health to closely follow the coronavirus situation and provide proper guidance. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs should direct Vietnamese authorities outside the country to inform people who wish to enter Vietnam to follow appropriate disease prevention measures, he said.

The latest decision has been made as the number of Covid-19 infections and deaths drops both in Vietnam and around the world. Several countries have been taking steps to relax coronavirus restrictions, including scrapping testing before entry.

Current policies issued by the health ministry require entrants to have negative results from PCR tests done within the previous 72 hours, or a negative result from a rapid test done within the last 24 hours.

Those who don’t have a negative test result must refrain from making contact with others during the first 24 hours after entry. They will be able to move freely once they test negative after arrival.

Children under two don’t need to be tested.

Vietnam stopped requiring medical declarations from those arriving from abroad starting April 27, and for domestic travel starting April 30.
