You’re gonna stop by Dong Ba Market while in Hue. You can get an inexpensive dose of local cuisine while you’re at it. There are lots of time-honoured stalls serving bun bo and other local specialties. It probably won't win any hygiene awards but we’ve survived many an outing and the locals flock here. Anthony Bourdain raves about one of the stalls. The fact that most of these stalls have been on the go for decades is a good sign. There are a handful of eateries outside the front entrance. Anthony Bourdain’s recommendation is to the right as you walk in the market. Try and spread the love. We’ve had numerous tasty meals here. There is another batch of food stalls deep inside near the Dong Ba canal exit (eastern exit). Quan O Dau has been working this corner for decades serving bun bo Hue and other bun noodle dishes. There’s a rice stand right next door.
