Banh Da Cua Di Ly

Feb 25, 2019

The interior might be rather sleek and modern but you’re coming for the best of Haiphong’s street-food scene at this family-run restaurant up the stairs at 103 Dong Khoi. The signature dish is banh da cua, a noodle soup with pappardelle- wide, brown noodles served with river-crab patties and a plethora of tasty morsels thrown in. But it’s also worth sharing a serving of banh cuon nhan thit (steamed rice-flour crêpes) and a plate of Haiphong banh mi (crunchy breadsticks filled with pâté). fb.com/banhdacuadily; mains from VND69,000.
