Eat & Drinks

Phu Quoc seems designed with resort-dwellers in mind, so you're mostly expected to eat at your own hotel. You'll likely want to venture elsewhere at some point, if only to add a little variety to your diet. Prices are generally a bit higher than what you'll find on the mainland, though quality tends to be decent at most places.

The weirdest shell you should try is “Nhum”. It is brown and at appearance looks like a coconut after its green skin has been taken off. There are two ways to eat “Nhum”: raw or well-cooked. If your stomach is experienced with handling raw food, you should not miss trying raw Nhum. When you order a “Nhum”, the seller cut the whole Nhum into half just like cutting the coconut horizontally. Then, you squeeze lime juice into Nhum, use a spoon to scoop out the meat from the shell, dip it into wasabi sauce and savor. The fresh taste and the sweet flavor combined with wasabi sauce and the sour of lime is too good to deny a second help.

Nhong fish
Phu Quoc is also famous for Nhong fish. It can be made into different kinds of dishes: fried, boiled, or hot pot dishes. Nhong fish is also made into Cha ca, fish cake or have a good topping for a salad.

Banh canh

Banh canh, a kind of noodle, creates a different taste when cooking with fish making it a specialty of Phu Quoc. Thu fish is the most popular choice to cook the dish. It is served hot in a bowl full of noodle and soup with some Thu fish fillets on top. There are three kinds of Thu fish that can be found in a same bowl: the boiled fish, the fish ball and the deep-fried fish fillets. The various ways the fish is cooked and served makes the taste more diverse.

Where to eat

A recommended place to try the dish is Banh Canh Lady Phung. It locates in a small alley from Nguyen Trung Truc street.
