Banh Trang Nuong (Vietnamese Pizza)

Banh Trang Nuong is one of the most famous da lat foods that people usually mention. Lots of people said that Da Lat has the best Vietnamese Pizza in the entire country. You should definitely go for this dish since it’s an amazing mouthwatering, fulfilling snack at an incredibly cheap price, which indeed costs only half a dollar.

Basically, the chef will grill the rice paper and add butter, eggs, sausage, beef jerky, dry shrimps, green onions, etc. and top it with spicy mayonnaise sauce. The smell while grilling this snack is irresistible. You can wrap the whole thing and bite, or use scissors to cut it into small pieces like a pizza.

Banh Uot Long Ga (Steamed Rice Cake with Chicken Intestine)

This is a signature dish that only Da Lat has, so it might be a waste if you come here and not having a taste. Perhaps you will question the combination of rice cake and chicken intestine but let me tell you, it tastes surprisingly well. The rice cake will be steamed until reaching a soft and chewy level, while the chicken will be boiled then mixed with different veggies, herbs and marinated in sweet and sour special fish sauce. Depending on your preference, you can also add chili sauce and lemon squash to increase the flavor.

Banh Mi Xiu Mai (Vietnamese Baguette with Meatball Soup)

Actually, Banh Mi Xiu Mai is a dish that can be found in different parts of the country. However, a large number of food lovers reviewed that this Vietnamese Baguette in Da Lat tastes better and more special compared to different places because of the quality of Xiu Mai. Commonly, Xiu Mai is made from lean minced pork while the rich and light sweet broth is made from simmered pork bones mixed with spices and topped with green onions for better colour and flavour.

Kem Bo (Avocado Ice Cream)

Kem Bo is also a well-known Da Lat food that you must try when you visit this beautiful city. Nothing too fancy, just a fresh avocado mix with unsweetened milk, condensed milk, coconut or vanilla ice cream, and sprinkled with dried coconut on top, but it tastes so good, everything compliments so well together to create a tasty, cool, and charming flavor.

Oc Buou Nhoi Thit (Vietnamese Escargot)

Generally, snails will be cleaned carefully to get rid of the fishy smell, then stuffed with minced pork and seasoned with spices. To make it smell irresistible, lemongrass is irreplaceable. The soul of this dish definitely comes from the sauce which is a mixture of sweet, sour, and spicy. You just need to take a stick or a toothpick to get the stuffing out and dip it in the tasty sauce.

Lau Ga La E (Chicken Hotpot with Lime Basil)

You might think there’s nothing special about a chicken hot pot, but when you add lime basil in it, it creates an unbelievably attractive taste. It’s a perfect combination of a slightly sweet taste from the broth and a pungent spiciness from the lime and basil. Local people usually have it with fresh vermicelli.

Dau Lac (Shaken Strawberries)

Strawberry is the most famous fruit in Da Lat. There are several strawberry farms that you can visit to pick fresh strawberries and buy them as a gift. However, if you want to try the simple yet famous snack Dau Lac, the best and most affordable place is Da Lat Night Market. It’s basically just strawberry that is cut into small pieces, sprinkled with sugar, salt, chilli, and maybe sometimes condensed milk, and shaken well. Just like that, you will be surprised by the pleasant taste of this healthy snack. It’s fun to eat it while you are shopping in the market.

Please to it Da Lat Night Market

 Bun Bo ( Beef Noodle Soup)

Among all the Da Lat foods, Bun Bo is one of the most common choices for a tasty and healthy breakfast. A bowl of Bun Bo will consist of vermicelli, beef, broth, and different kinds of veggies. Normally, the broth is a little bit sweet and rich, the beef is flavorful and the vermicelli is both soft and chewy at the same time. When trying this dish, it’s highly recommended to eat it together with herbs and add a lemon squash. Bun Bo is pretty spicy itself, so try it before you add more fresh chili or chili sauce.

Nem Nuong Da Lat (Grilled Pork Sausage)

Nem Nuong Da Lat has its own spot in top da lat food that visitors must try. From the first glance, it might look the same as the Lemongrass Pork Skewers, but the special peanut sauce here makes it so flavorful and different, and the dish is paired with fresh and clean Da Lat vegetables. For this dish, the chef tends to choose lean pork shoulder with less fat, less coloring, and flouring, so when it is grilled over the charcoal, the meat still remains sweet. You can wrap it in a roll with veggies and fried rice paper, then dip it in the sauce to enjoy the wonderful bite.

Vegetables Salad

Da Lat is the vegetable paradise of Vietnam with a fresh and clean source of veggies but as you know, it’s not that easy to bring back home, so while tourists are here, they want to take the chance to have a lot of greens. Vegetable salad is an ideal choice since it is tasty, healthy, and you can trust the quality of vegetables here. It can be a main dish for vegetarians and side dishes for people who love meat or seafood.

Sua Dau Nanh (Soy Milk)

Among all the Da Lat foods that we mentioned in this listing, perhaps Sua Dau Nanh is the easiest and the most idyllic one. Just a simple drink, but even the taste in Da Lat is more delicious and unique. One small tip for foodie lovers, even though they have both iced and hot soy milk, you should absolutely go ahead and order hot soy milk, because it’s a signature drink and it’s suitable for the cool weather of Da Lat. In addition, people often have a glass of soy milk with different types of pastries. You will enjoy this drink the best in the early morning as a nutritious breakfast or an evening snack.

Banh Can Da Lat (Mini Pancake)

Banh Can or Da Lat Mini Pancake attracts customers through its crispy crust, nutritious egg filling, and especially the balanced onion fish sauce with a Xiu Mai inside. It’s a perfect fit for a cool weather day. That’s why Banh Can is the original signature dish of this beautiful dreamy city.
