From the affordable shops to high-end restaurants with luxurious space, they all bring the fresh feeling because of the view towards the sea as well as the windswept open area.

MI QUANG (Mì Quảng)
Mi Quang (Quang noodles) is one of the most well-known specialties in Da Nang – Quang Nam. A distinctive dish is partaken of thick rice noodles with assorted vegetables, pork, shrimp, chicken and frog in some shops or restaurants and stewed broth from pork bones. They are also added by milled and dry roasted peanuts, chopped green onions, herbs, and red peppers. Particularly, Mi Quang is not unfamiliar with tourists, but to choose a right stop so that you can taste the actual “Quang” of this delicacy is not that easy. Hence, I, born and raised in Danang, would like to recommend a few of places:

Round scad grilled in kitchen foil is eaten with vegetables (water spinach, mustard, salad, mint leaves and so on) and the most important and indispensable ‘flavour’ that makes the dish distinctive is anchovy paste with garlic and chilli. Some people also use the fish sauce instead. It sounds simple but not really simple because the taste is actually amazing!
