Nha Trang is famous for its seafood, which can be enjoyed local-style, in a noisy shack surrounded by beer-chugging Vietnamese, or in more sophisticated surrounds, in a resortlike setting overlooking the beach. The tourist-oriented town also has numerous international restaurants. Outside of Nha Trang, dining options are more basic; seafood is still the specialty along the coast but in the Central Highlands, the focus is on the locally grown vegetables and free-range village-raised chicken and pork. Local specialties are candied fruit, jam, artichoke tea, and Dalat wine. Beyond Dalat and Nha Trang, only local restaurants exist, and English menus are scarce. Dining choices are humble though tasty, but service standards are definitely local. It's the customer's job to summon service, not the waitstaff's responsibility to be aware of what could be needed.
