Food that you must try: Mi quang is a typical dish. This tasty dish is made with rice noodles, and it usually contains shrimp, roast pork, and quail eggs. A bowl of this only costs about $1.50 and it will fill you up! Chao tom is another popular dish that consists of shrimp and garlic paste wrapped around sugarcane.
