Street food in Dalat night market

Dalat’s charms are in the details; one of which is the food. Dalat cuisine is all about fresh produce and lots of it. Blessed with a cool central highland climate, just about anything can be grown there, not just tropical vegetables and fruits. Visiting Da Lat, no tourists can miss the chances to try its famous food which make a significant contribution to the fame of the Romantic city.

Try Dalat Salad at Goc Ha Thanh, 53 Truong Dinh, Dalat. Also try the vegetable curry there. It’s fantastic as well. The vegetables are so crispy and fresh that it is one of the best salads you’ve ever had.  Indochina travel Vietnam

On the second floor of Food Stalls at Dalat Market, you can find all kinds of impressive offerings. The vendors are a little pushy, but take your time and do some perusing. See what’s busy (duh) and gather up an assortment of dishes. You can some roll-you-own spring rolls, a bowl of bun nem nướng (grilled sausage on vermicelli), and an order of surprisingly tasty “banh khoai”. You can’t miss it.

Give you a try with ‘Dalat pizza’: “banh trang” is a thin circle of rice paper with various ‘toppings’ on it that’s grilled over coals until crispy. It’s kind of the Dalat version of a pizza. Kind of, but not quite. It’s a popular snack all over Vietnam, particularly with children. On cold Dalat nights, in the fine Dalat rain it’s warming and comforting to sit by the coal stove here.

“Banh can” are super cool looking rice cakes grilled in little terracotta half dome molds. Often a quail egg is broken inside, then the lids are put on until they cook through. Once unveiled, the two halves are united to form one light, fluffy ball of crisp goodness. On the side came the dipping sauce with two of the softest, most tender meatballs you’ve ever had.

Dalat night market is overwhelming with dainty morsels due to extremely chilly cool evenings. Going for a walk to Dalat night market, visitors would be surprised by the mushrooming of a couple small tables and chairs that don’t bother the customers. Most foods sold in this area are too hot for visitors to finish them at once. There are a lot of small food stalls or the elderlies’ trolleys with good tastes and smokes spiraling up. The food smell wakes up visitors’ red nose at cool night air and visitors know they have come to the right place.
