Quy Nhon’s a surprisingly good town for eating. The local seafood along the beach is inexpensive and delicious. And the some of the local specialties are worth checking out too.


Seafood along the beach - Quy Nhon

There are loads of little seafood eateries along the beachfront north of the big new statue of Ho Chi Minh with his Dad.


Local dishes - Quy Nhon

Ngoc Han Cong Chua St is a little festival of local dishes every night of the week. The focus is snails but I’ve now visited Mrs Nu’s Quy Nu’s banh canh eatery at 17 Han Cong Chua St enough times to say I’m a fan. Banh canh cha ca is a popular dish along Vietnam’s central coast and it’s quite distinct from banh canh served elsewhere. Banh cuon - Quy Nhon style,  is also especially good here.

Banh Canh Ba O on Bach Dang St is popular with the locals.

Do some exploring and you’ll stumble across plenty of other buzzing beachside eateries.


Bai Xep beach eating - Quy Nhon

Bai Xep beach 12kms south of Quy Nhon, is where the upscale Avani Resort is located. There are also a bunch of guesthouse-style accommodations on the beach. So this area is developing its own little culinary scene. It tends to be traveller versions of Vietnamese cuisine, or straight out traveller essentials like pizza, burgers, pasta and so. Probably won’t get any awards for authenticity but they might resolved a craving.

Big Tree at Haven is popular and serves basic local dishes and all the backpacker favourites, looking over Bai Xep beach. There are also local eatieries in the fishing village nearby.

If you feel like something more fancy, head along to the restaurant at the Avani Resort - also on Bai Xep.
