[Travel Tips] Vegetarian Paradise – Da Nang scores in Diversity and Price

Especially if you are travelling it´s hard to come up with your usual habits at home, when it´s about food the Asian kitchen can be sometimes overwhelming flooded by different kinds of meat. But it doesn´t have to be like this. For enthusiasts that love the taste of fresh herbs and the crunch of vegetables guided by a rich and spicy sauce will find their “place to be” in Danang.

And as a vegeterian, Da Nang has something to offer you won´t find anywhere else in the world. The Vietnamese Crab Claw Herb (Peperomia pellucida) only grows in the Da Nang Area. The taste is similar to watercress with the positive effect of being a natural antibiotic!

To mention is the most popular dish “Mi Quang” in a vegetarian version. Normally Mi Quang is served with chicken or pork and shrimp paste, but at the Hy Lac Restaurant in 378 Phan Chu Trinh you will find your beloved ingredients in shape of vegetables and tofu.
