Chả Dông (Salamander spring rolls)

However, just like making a typical spring roll, after being properly processed and grounded, the meat is marinated and mixed with familiar spices: shallots, chili, pepper, garlic, lemongrass, lard, and wood-ear mushrooms. Hot oil, deep-fry, and voila! And if you are an adventurous traveler, will you give the grilled salamander a try?

Sò huyết đầm Ô Loan (Blood cockle of O Loan Lagoon)

Sò huyết (Blood cockle) of O Loan Lagoon, ranked at top of the list not only Vietnamese but also foreign tourists since having the most delectable and unique taste. Aside from O Loan Lagoon’s spectacular landscape, sò huyết here is exquisite because of the water environment of salt and fresh water.

All diners have the appetite for this amazingly juicy and rich meat of sò huyết, thus, the stir-fried blood cockle with chili salt is mostly chosen (besides grilled, stir-fry with tangerine, steamed or even salads).
