Must-try Da Lat Street Food

da-lat-street-food

With the temperate climate and striking scenery, Da Lat makes its name as a stunning destination that unceasingly awes tourists with spectacular attractions. But do you know that it is the diverse Da Lat street food that keeps people’s hearts and urges them to come back? Scroll down, and you will see that we are not exaggerating at all!

Must-try Da Lat Street Food

Banh Can - Vietnamese Mini Pancake

Though Banh Can originates from Central Vietnam, it is now a Da Lat’s specialty. Traditionally, the first step of making Banh Can starts when a mixture of rice flour and water is poured into small black molds. After a couple of minutes of cooking, these tiny cakes are placed neatly in a plate and garnished with spring onion, and eaten with mixed fish sauce.

Other ingredients can be added, such as squid, shrimp, or anchovies to the cake. Both versions are appetizing and can be enjoyed with side dishes like green mango and Vietnamese Meatballs (Siu Mai).

Banh Uot Long Ga - Thin Rice Flour Pancake with Stir-fried Chicken Viscera

This is the most unique dish among all Da Lat street food since you can rarely find it in other parts of Vietnam. With a unique combination of wet rice paper, crispy chicken viscera, chicken meat, and the savor of garlic chili sauce, Banh Uot Long Ga brings you a special feeling when tasting it amidst the temperate climate of Da Lat. Surprisingly, the viscera does not have any unpleasant taste or smell as you might think intestines should have, but you can always opt for just chicken meat if you're not familiar with the chicken's insides.

Nem Nuong - Vietnamese Grilled Pork Sausages

Vietnamese Grilled Pork Sausages are always on the top list of Da Lat street food. The aroma of meat is fragrant with spices and blends with the scent of hot coal smoke to create a mesmerizing flavor, wrapped in crispy rice paper.

Banh Trang Nuong - Grilled Rice Paper with Egg

This Da Lat street food has a funny nickname called "Da Lat pizza". Though you can spot numerous stalls selling Banh Trang Nuong in Saigon, the flavor in its hometown is way more impressive. To create the so-called Da Lat pizza, the vendor fills a rice paper with fatty quail eggs, creamy cheese, some slices of the dried beef or sausage, and a sprinkle of spring onion.

Avocado Ice Cream

With their creativity, Da Lat has turned avocado - a signature fruit of this city - into an appetizing dessert called Avocado Ice Cream. Though each stall may use different ingredients (coconut crunch, durian, milk, etc.) to create this sweet treat, a scoop of white ice cream and a glass of avocado smoothie are an indispensable part of Avocado Ice Cream.
