We had four days to spend in Nha Trang, visiting families and doing some touristsie things, we had one more important thing on our minds, the food. I couldn’t wait to tuck into some street vendor food hehe
If you wanna travel to Nhatrang but don’t know anythings about Vietnam travel, you can look at in this topic. Nha Trang, a truly beautiful city. Walk along the streets of Nha Trang for an hour and you will be amazed by how many different parts of the city you will cross….beautiful beaches, modern city life and high-rises, coconut trees, dirt roads with plenty of street vendors and their delicious home prepared meals, and of course, plenty of motorcyclists.
Nha Trang was our second stop in Vietnam. My boyfriends home town. We had four days to spend in Nha Trang, visiting families and doing some touristsie things, we had one more important thing on our minds, the food. I couldn’t wait to tuck into some street vendor food hehe
First night of arrival in Nha Trang, it was a cold and wet night. It was raining heavily in Nha Trang. We were cold, tired and hungry. Our cab ride back to the hotel wasn’t much better, the drivers in Vietnam drove like nutcases and used their car horns like no tomorrow. I remember thinking to myself, geez these guys need to chill and stop with all their road rage. I later learn’t that the horn was not use for road rage but rather a way of communicating to other drivers, that they were approaching, or wanted to overtake.
Anyways, after checking into our hotel (Spring Hotel in Nha Trang), we headed downstairs for our first meal in Nha Trang, Seafood Congee and Stir fried Seafood Noodles. Seafood is as fresh as you can get here in Nha Trang, straight from the sea to the restarants/street vendors. It was a small restaurant and we had to sit in little chairs and mini tables, but the food was warm, comforting and yummy so it didn’t bother me that much.
Over the next few days we ate some of the best Vietnamese food that Nha Trang had to offer. One of them was the Vietnamese Pork and Pate Bread rolls (Bánh mì). I know what you’re all thinking…Bread Rolls…whats so great about them? Believe me, it had to be one of best rolls I had in a long time (we had many bread rolls from all different street Vendors, and they just kept getting better 🙂 hehe). Bread rolls bought very much in Hanoi Vietnam, Saigon Vietnam…
The many vendor stands you can buy awesome food from!
The bread had quite a different texture to what they have in the Vietnamese bakeries here in Australia. The outside of the bread is extremely crispy yet a little bit chewy, and the inside is extremely fluffy, whist filled with the right amount of home made pate, french mayonnaise, a variety of slices pork meats including Grilled Pork Belly and Cha Lua, coriander, spring onions, chilli and pickle carrots and their special home made sauces. Mmmmmmm just drooling now thinking about the rolls.
