Cheap Eats 2017: Hai Duong


It can be hard to know where to start on the multi-page menu at this neon-lit Eden Center gem, but the best bets are listed in the “house special” section. That’s where you’ll find cha ca thang long, skewers of turmeric-tinted catfish served like fajitas on a sizzling platter. You’ll also want to home in on the bánh xèo, one of the area’s better versions of the crepe stuffed with pork, shrimp, and bean sprouts. Also good: Bun cha ha noi, Hanoi-style grilled pork with vermicelli; minced baby clams and pork with rice crackers.
