Nem Nuong Thanh Van
Address: 17, Hoa Binh Avenue, Ninh Kieu District, Can Tho City
Opening hours: 07:00 AM – 10:30 PM

Although Nem Nuong Thanh Van is originally excluded in the list of Mekong Delta delicacies, it is still famous through the region for its stunning taste. To have such a special taste, the chef has chosen the freshest pork and ground it in a stone mortar. The ground pork is then marinated well in certain spices, rolled into small balls, and skewered to grill. The best way to savor the food is to let it go with fresh noodle, “banh hoi”(a type of Vietnamese vermicelli), herbs, and vegetables. What decides the perfect balance of the recipe is sour and sweet fish sauce – it is also a precious element in this Mekong Delta specialty. To those who love a diverse menu, there are famed dishes as well as must-try delicacies to pick here.

Especially, not similar to other food stalls specializing in “banh cong” (Vietnamese fried shrimp cake), the cake made by Co Ut has appealed to plenty of locals and travelers from many other places because of its mysterious recipe. Its ingredients are not only shrimp and ground pork, but also green bean, which makes it crispier. With the harmonious mixture of fish sauce, pickles, chili, garlic, sugar, and lemon juice, it is indeed perfect to savor. That is the reason why “banh cong Co Ut” is always listed in places to eat in Can Tho. It will be a difficult-to forget sense if you take a chance to taste the food.
