  • 1. B&B Café

    $ | Coffee

    One of Mui Ne’s best kept secrets is the beachside B&B Café. It feels out of place on the expansive grounds of Ca Ty Resort, but you can hang out here all day watching the kitesurfers and sipping reasonably priced fresh squeezed juices, blended coffees, and flavored sodas in shaded huts steps from the beach. The wooden chairs are hard, though, so bring a towel and sit on the beach or the grass. Meals can be ordered from adjacent restaurant.

    6 Nguyen Dinh Chieu, Phan Thiet, Binh Thuan, Vietnam

    Known For

    • Prime beachside location
    • Lots of space to relax
    • Reasonably priced drinks
  • 2. Banh Xeo Tom Nhay Anh Vu

    $

    Take your pick of tom (shrimp) or bo (beef) to fill your Binh Dinh--style rice pancake. The local rendition of banh xeo is arguably the best in the country; they come smaller and zestier here than in other parts of the country, and can be wrapped in rice paper and green mango (a must). Wrap everything up, dunk it in some chili-laced fish sauce and tuck in. One's good for a snack; two makes a meal.

    A cute and quirky little coffee shop serving a range of drinks, including beer, cakes, ice cream, and yogurt, Bicycle Up is a great place to rest and recharge with a book (check out the homemade book light fittings), a coffee, or a fruit smoothie while listening to mellow music. This quiet refuge is perfect for a rainy day.

Popular with tour groups, the unpretentious two-story local joint with seating for up to 1,000 guests specializes in live seafood cooked to order, including the local chisel fish (ca duc). There is an English menu but expect Vietnamese-style service, which can seem rude if you're not used to it.

  • 17. Com Ga Bay Quan

    $

    Like a lot of eateries in Quy Nhon, this place does simple, but truly delicious meals, with minimum fuss and maximum care. A good idea is to sit outside on the street corner and watch the world go by as you tuck into dinner. A huge menu on the wall proclaims a wide range of dishes to choose from, but you might have to just point out the one you want.

  • 18. Com Sau Thu

    $

    One of the most popular com binh dan (canteens) in town, Com Sau Thu has been making locals happy with their cheap and cheerful fare for more than 10 years. (The husband and wife Sau and Thu now have three shops, but locals agree the original one at this address remains the best.) The daily options are displayed in a glass case at the front of the restaurant, so you can just point to a range of dishes and then take a seat. Vietnamese people usually order one meat dish, one or two vegetable dishes, and a soup, and all are placed in the middle of the table and shared. There's no need to order rice because it comes automatically.

There are many banh trang sellers at the top of the stairs next to the market. Along the stairs and at the base of the staircase are more food vendors, offering a range of soups, chao (rice porridge), and barbecued chicken feet.
