After meeting your local guide, we’ll enjoy a fascinating walk through the foodie mecca that is the Nha Trang Night Market, taking in the sights, sounds and smells as your guide introduces you to some of the local’s favourite foods.
We’ll then amble over to Nguyen Thi Minh Khai street for our first stop where we will try nem nướng nha Trang, a grilled, fermented pork roll unique to the area. Unlike versions in other Vietnamese cities, this recipe tends to be a bit sweeter and features less chili.
Our adventure continues through some of the back streets, where you’ll have the chance to enjoy another typical, local dish. Banh can is a small pancake made with rice flour, cooked rice and coconut milk and is served with your choice of prawn, squid or beef. This delightful dish is heavily influenced by Cham culture and is cooked somewhat theatrically over charcoal using many small pans.
Next up you’ll try the famous bun cha ca, a vermicelli noodle soup with grilled fish cake and steamed tuna or sailfish. Unlike the usual Vietnamese noodle broth that is created by using fatty boiled pork, this broth is made of boiled sailfish and mackerel bones, which adds a special sweet and savoury note. The full version of Nha Trang noodle soup will also include jellyfish — which we dare you to try! (The choice is yours and there will be no pressure to try it should you not wish to.)
To allow our dinner to digest somewhat, we’ll take a leisurely 15-minute stroll to Hung Vuong street to try our last savoury dish of the evening, the delicious bo ne beef steak. A sizzling hot plate of marinated beef, eggs and pate will be served to you alongside an exciting array of condiments and fresh bread. This is a special dish that you will be talking about for years to come!
Our final stop is of course, dessert. We’ll stop at a colourful street food vendor to try one of their fruit platters and perhaps try a hạt dác nut that you can only find here. The vendor’s pretty fruit displays attract lots of attention and make for some perfect holiday snapshots.
Our tour is now officially over, you can either finish the evening with your guide who will assist you in getting a taxi back to your hotel or you can choose to keep enjoying Nha Trang at night. Don’t forget to ask your guide for more hints and tips on how to get the best out of your stay in Nha Trang.
