Nha Trang such a great place for nightlife, the beach and the weather. I love Sailing club whenever I go back my home town and go there for few beers or having dinner with friends.
Everything is not so expensive and people are really friendly. They leave you alone on the beach and they give you a sweet greeting on the street. If you are an easy going person who doesn’t mind eating on the street or in a small restaurant then don’t forget to go to “Nem Ninh Hoa” spring roll restaurant on Le Loi Street. It serves crispy rice paper, pork and vegetables and rolling yourself with rice paper and dipping with a very special orange sauce with some sweet and spicy chilli. It’s delicious with an amazing price. You’d spend 2 dollars for 2 people for your lunch or dinner with 2 or 3 drinks.
There is another small shop near the “Dam” Market where they sell great “Bun Ca” Fish noodle, where they use normal noodles which are long and round with steam fish, veggies and you’d order some more fried fish which makes you roll your eyes around and enjoy. It costs about 5 cents, meaning 7000 dongs per bowl.
Steam rice pancake “Banh Xeo” and “Banh Can” are unbelievably good. They are steamed rice flower with shrimp, cuttlefish and small eggs, eaten with special fish sauce and veggies. Or some places cook it with pork but with the same stuff. At some other places they mix eggs with flower and cook but some places they don’t. Ask them in advance if you are a very strictly vegetarian fellow.
Going down to the new part of Tran Phu street is the seafood restaurants area, you can ask people about Bien Tien restaurant which has really famous fried squid with butter and living king prawns or Lobster. You can choose whatever live fish are in the pool and they charge you with the reasonable price. Another very famous restaurant that you should check it out is “Gio” Wind restaurant, which has beautiful food for a reasonable price with very nice sea crab, located in the centre and right in front of the beach. If you are a big, adventurous person then go to the restaurant at No 6 Ngo Sy Lien with very good grilled squid and fish salad with Asian herbs. Most of these seafood places cost you about $15 or 200.000 dongs for your meal for 2.
Don’t forget to try one day boat trip and enjoy your whole day between 4 different islands with a seafood lunch and drink horrible Vietnamese red wine with pineapple, smoke and swim around the floating bar with very crazy Vietnamese staff. Check it out with Mama Hanh’s Green Hat. You’d have such a great day and get pissed at the end of the tour with only 100.000 dongs or 6 bucks.
Hope you guys who read my story enjoy your trip in my city with cheers and beers!!!
