Da Lat Restaurants

Where and What to Eat in Dalat

Da Lat has many options for fine and interesting dining. The best place to find a good variety of restaurants here is along Nguyen Chi Thanh Street in the city. If you’re around Ho Xuan Huong Lake, look out for the popular Bluewater Restaurant. If you want to experience the real deal, try out the many street food stores along the lake; they sell all sorts of local specialties.

Da Lat cuisine is all about fresh produce and lots of it. Blessed with a cool central highland climate, just about anything can be grown there, not just tropical vegetables and fruits. Among locally grown foods are strawberries, asparagus, artichokes, grapes, tea and coffee. A must-try snack is baguette with strawberry jam, along with excellent Vietnamese-style coffee.
