Street of vermicelli with fish leaves and jellyfish vermicelli on Yersin street
Actually, vermicelli with pickled fish leaves is not a type of vermicelli with ingredients from the fish species called “beam”, but this is a way to prepare a typical broth that makes this type of vermicelli unique. If you plan to go to Nha Trang, don’t forget to enjoy this dish. Vermicelli leaves originated from Thanh My village – Ninh Hoa and from there spread everywhere, leaving a mark in the hearts of many diners. This type of vermicelli is swirled into a thin circle, as small as the rim of a cup. Each pen slice is placed on a round piece of banana leaf to avoid sticking to each other.
The broth is made from sea fish such as sailfish, raft fish, crawfish or tuna… All are fish rich in protein, sweet and chewy. After being cleaned, the fish is deboned into small pieces and dropped into a pot of water. That’s why this dish’s full name is “beamed fish leaf vermicelli” (or “smashed” depending on the dialect). The fish selected must be fresh and should not fall apart when cooked. The next secret here is to keep the pot of water very clear. Vegetables served with this type of vermicelli are usually lettuce, herbs, bean sprouts, banana ears… All are chopped and mixed when preparing to eat. To make the bowl of vermicelli more flavorful, you can squeeze in a slice of fresh lemon, add a little fish sauce or shrimp paste. If you stop at Yersin Street, you can enjoy both pickled fish leaf vermicelli and jellyfish vermicelli.
Nha Trang Fish Ball Noodles - Nguyen Canh Chan
Hearing the name Bun Cha Ca Nha Trang, you can probably guess that the main dish of the restaurant is fish noodle soup. However, in addition to this dish, Nguyen Canh Chan also sells many other specialty noodle dishes of Nha Trang, especially the jellyfish noodle dish. The jellyfish noodle bowl here has clear water, small noodles, and a sweet, steamed fish cake emerging. Golden fried fish cake, red tomato slices, a few green onions, served with lettuce, herbs and bean sprouts. Add in a little chili satay, a few slices of spicy green chili, it’s really good.
You can order a bowl of noodle soup with fish and jellyfish to remind you of Nha Trang. Because this coastal city’s jellyfish vermicelli is the most famous.

Jellyfish used to cook noodles are as small as the tip of a big toe or thumb, opaque white, thick-walled, and look like the flesh of a nipa coconut. This type of jellyfish is caught by fishermen on remote islands and does not cause itching when eaten. Eating jellyfish vermicelli must be hot and spicy.
Nha Trang Pancake Street on To Hien Thanh Street
Another variation of southern Vietnamese banh xeo is banh xeo with added seafood from coastal people. Banh xeo molded in a pan should be called banh xeo pan.

Many customers want to stop by the restaurant but are hesitant because there is no parking space.
