Charming ambiances, rustic interior designs, and considerate staff, Da Nang’s vegetarian options will surely add a beautiful flavor to your travel! Fried tofu with boiled vegetables are now… hard to find in a vegetarian restaurant. Instead, you have plenty of beautifully decorated and delicately cooked dishes to choose from! In this article, we are going to learn about some dishes you can’t miss when going vegan in Da Nang, and which restaurants must be on your must-visit list. Let’s discover!
VEGETARIAN DISHES TO ORDER
Mi quang has been among the top favorite Vietnamese dishes of Da Nang for so long, and the veggie version is just as good! The thick light noodle is eaten with elegantly sweet soup cooked and flavored with vegetables, accompanied by a plate of fresh herbs. This will surely prepare you for an energetic day as you gobble it down for breakfast!
Hue noodle is another beautiful option that can be made vegetarian! You can find a vegan bun Hue in any big city of Vietnam, yet the most ideal areas to try this dish should be Hue or its neighboring cities. If you’re in Da Nang and do not have a plan to visit Hue, don’t miss this lovely food.
Don’t freak out if you see beef in your bowl! It’s actually made from tofu!
Being a specialty dish of the central coastal areas of Vietnam, this crunchy Vietnamese fried pancake should not to be missed if you are looking for one of the most genuine tastes of Da Nang City. Normally, the cake is filled with shrimp, meat, or beef. And yet, with the veggie version, the green beans, mushrooms, and bean sprouts will delight you and make your stomach happy! When eating this cuisine, don’t forget to wrap it within a slice of fresh salad leaf.
Banh Bot Loc
This cake is covered with a sticky rice layer and, for the vegan version, stuffed with green bean filling. It is also a typical dessert of the central coastal land and surely worth your time!
Although it originated in the neighboring province of Quang Ngai, Banh Dap served in Da Nang is also an interesting choice. This dish is like a waffle, with a steamy rice cake sandwiched by two pieces of fried rice cake, dipped in a special sauce. The crunchiness of the fried cake, together with its soft filling, and the tasty sauce is remarkable!
Apart from what I have recommended, don’t hesitate to ask for more suggestions from your restaurants. I’m quite sure, after trying the tasty veggie dishes in this lovely city, what will be left is more than the food flavor, but the great sense of hospitality of the Da Nang people. Below are some suggestions for amazing restaurants that serve veggie dishes to give yourself a culinary boost!
