It is essentially gelatinous steamed rice with fluffy pemmican, croutons, sauteed onions, and chives. It is served with a sweet and sour sauce. Banh beo is usually served in small bowls in a set. Each bowl is only as big as a child’s fist. A set often includes 10 bowls, served on a tray.

Although you can find it almost everywhere in Phu Yen, people recommend that you try it at Ms. Mai’s restaurant. You can find it at the foot of Nhan Mountain.

Pour a little sauce into your bowl and try it! Banh beo’s taste is one of the best flavor which tourists cannot forget after their culinary tours to Vietnam.

Banh canh he (Chive noodle soup):

Banh canh he is one of the specialties you have to try when you come to Phu Yen.


Unique chive noodle soup

There are two types of noodles that can be used: tapioca and flour. You can also ask them to put both in your portion with the fish. The tasty soup with its grilled fish and the light scent of chives keeps you wanting more of it!

Tuna eyes:

This is a typical dish of Phu Yen – a must-try for visitors coming to this region!

As odd as it may sound, many people love this exotic dish.

The tuna eyes are usually steamed with Chinese herbs. The fish eyes’ size and fattiness make it a bit too much for some people. Many say that it is also very aromatic because of the herbs. That is why the locals recommend you eat it with raw vegetables to harmonize the taste.

If fish heads are not your thing, you might feel a bit intimidated by this bizarre dish. Big round tuna eyes with jujubes, scallions, and other herbs in a pot might not be very appealing to you.

Add some greens, try the broth and take a bite of those greasy eyes, you will not be disappointed! The flavors are artfully combined to bring you a pleasant culinary experience in Vietnam family tours.

This is surely an interesting dish that you have to try!

So huyet (blood cockle)

You could see now that the local people just love their fresh seafood. And blood cockle is one of their favorites!
