Like any tourist town, Dalat doesn't want for restaurants. But getting good local food requires a little effort. International restaurants are limited - but there’s more than enough good Vietnamese food to keep you covered for a few days. The town has a reputation for quality fresh produce and is also the source of some of Vietnam’s finest coffee. Make sure you check out our recommended cafes. Banh Trang Nuong is the local culinary specialty - also known as the Vietnamese pizza.
