With a long renowned cuisine and various promotional activities, Hue’s dishes are known for their mouthwatering taste and meticulous way of cooking.

Meticulousness of Hue cuisine comes all the way from ingredients selection to dish decoration, which has always attracted people’s attention when visiting the former capital of Vietnam.

 “Every step requires dedication. The dish is good only when its ingredients are fresh. When the dish is served hot, diners surely will be impressed,” said Nguyen Thi Loc, owner of the Ba Do Restaurant.

During Hue Festival 2018, restaurants within the city were bustling with both domestic and international diners. Many visitors revealed that cuisine is the magnet pulling them into the ancient city.
