Among lots of budget stops, this is one of your destinations in Hue. This large, new, open-front eating place borrows its approach from the mandarins and temple compounds outside of Hue. But this is comprehensively contemporary, neat, and caters mostly to large groups.
You will be asked about your nationality when you arrive and they will deliver your country's flag to your table when you sit down. Phuoc Thanh is a fine option for hygienic versions of local specialties like-
Bun bo Hue (local noodle soup)
Nem ran (fresh spring rolls) or
Banh khoi (pancakes).
Long lists of tasty stir-fries, as well as delicious hot pots, round out the menu are the chief attraction of this restaurant. Follow up with fresh mango, local ice cream, or crÃ¨me caramel. Set menus include a gourmand's succession of soup, appetizers, and main courses. There's also a small "Western corner" with fish and chips or other familiar eats for the kids.
