In Da Nang, locals will tell you that Con Market is the best place to try signature dishes of the central region that is authentic, tasty and cheap.
|Located at the intersection of Hung Vuong and Ong Ich Khiem streets, the market’s name dates back to the 1940s when the market was located on a high hill (con) in the heart of the city.|
|This stall serves banh it tran (sticky rice dumpling) and banh bot loc (steamed tapioca cake with shrimp) with a fish sauce dip with pickled carrots.|
|Unlike rice paper rolls with boiled pork in the southern region that is always served with fish sauce, the central region uses mam nem, made of fermented anchovies, sugar, Thai chili pepper, garlic, lemongrass, sugar, and crushed pineapples.|
|If you are fan of sweet soups, Hoa Xu’s stall will do justice with all kinds of red bean and green bean soups, mixed sweet soup, flan cake, smoothies and pickled fruits that are displayed on her store shelves.|
