Top 12 street food in Quy Nhon Vietnam

1. Bún chả cá (fishball noodle soup)

Fishball noodle soup is the most famous specialty in the beautiful coastal city Quy Nhon.

What makes the difference compared to bun cha in other provinces is the fishball and the broth.

Fishball is made entirely from fresh fish with different spices, while the broth is mainly cooked from fish bones, creating a pleasant and unforgettable taste.

The dish is served with rice noodles and special chili sauce prepared only in Binh Dinh.
