Hue is famous for its heritage site-listing, and its great monuments, temples and pagodas. What Hue is also very well known for is its fusion food that is a combination of the simple cuisine of the locals and the lavish foods of the royalty. The various restaurants in Hue ensure that tourists can sample some of the unique dishes. The famous Lac Thanh Restaurant, Hue serves its customers typical Vietnamese dishes such as Bun Bo Hue (Noodle Soup – but not like Pho), Banh Khoai (Potato Omelet), and a delightful but little known dish called Com Hen (Dwarf snails in broth with rice fresh salad vegetables and crushed peanuts).
The Lac Thanh Restaurant, Hue is basically an open-air restaurant that serves some great foods like grilled pork wrapped in rice paper, sautéed bean sprouts, grilled crab, and spareribs, as well as mouth-watering desserts like the ché nong, a warm congee with coconut, bananas, and nuts. Cheap, and really tasty, the restaurant is a must-try place.
The Lac Thanh Restaurant, Hue is very similar to the Lac Thien Restaurant, and both claim to be the original one, with the other being the imitator. Whichever way it might be, it is recommended that both restaurants be tried, as they both are great and serve some excellent fare.
The Lac Thanh Restaurant, Hue is situated at 6A Dinh Tien Hoang, on the corner of Dinh Tien Hoang and Tran Hung Dao Street, and can easily be reached. A must-try restaurant for every visitor to Hue.
