People said that “If someone visits Nha Trang without having a dinner at Lac Canh Grilled Beef restaurant, they just know half of Nha Trang.”
Lac Canh Grilled Beef Restaurant has been in business for 40 years. It has lasted that long mainly because of its high quality yet affordable dishes which people like coming back to. Its specialty grilled beef is even more famous because guests will cook it themselves, adding more fun to the whole dining experience. A charcoal brazier and a net grill will be brought to the customer’s table, and the main dish pre-marinated and cut into cubes. Diners have the option of cooking the meat according to their personal taste, whether they like it rare, medium or well done. A mixed salad of lettuce, tomatoes and onions sprinkled with oil and vinegar is a perfect accompaniment to the meal, along with beer and Vietnamese bread soaked in the marinated sauce. The bread can also be grilled by the diner to make it crispy and spicy.
Other must-try dishes at the restaurant are spicy frog; rice dishes; chilli and crispy rice mixed with sesame; and fried rice with garlic. Luon Dum is also a favourite at the diner, composed of eel mixed with minced pork, rice vermicelli, onions, mushrooms and occasionally cault fat of a pig. The dish is steamed and cut into small pieces. It is best served with crunchy rice pancakes.
Many diners have tried to copy the sauce at Lac Cahn Restaurant which is said to contain honey and various spices, but no one has ever solved the mystery to the recipe. Along with its fair price, good ambience and hospitable local people, it’s no wonder that visitors from all over the world keep coming back to the place
While Nha Trang is known for its world-class beaches, fresh seafood and warm people, visitors also come for its Lac Canh Grilled Beef Restaurant which is famous for its grilled beef and other wonderful dishes.
