Fried ocean crab rice
If you are a rice lover and also an ocean crab lover, Fried ocean crab rice is a good choice. Rice is stir-fried with carrots, eggs, green onions, ocean crab meat, spices and served with cumbers, tomatoes, coriander, soy sauce and chili slices.
Sardinella salad is a specialty food of Phu Quoc. It is a mix of slices of uncooked sardinella, strips of carrots, onion strings, green onions, peanuts, shredded coconut meat. Before eating the salad, diners wrap the salad in rice papers into rolls, dip in sweet-sour fish sauce dip.
Chou chou peanuts
It has been said that French people came to Phu Quoc. They brought Chou chou – French peanuts covered with shrimp salt, seaweeds, garlic, sesame, mangoes, coffee, caramel, durian and these foods are the most favorite foods for tourists to eat and bring home from Phu Quoc. Chou chou peanuts and Chou chous peanuts are two well-known brands at Phu Quoc Night Market.
Vietnamese pizza’s crust is a thick and crispy rice paper. It is not topped with cheese and bacon like Italian pizzas but ground pork, sausage, quail eggs, green onions, onions, carrots, mayonnaise, chili paste and tomato sauce. The cake is grilled on charcoal until the rice paper turns crispy and the toppings are hot, then folded into half and served to customers.
Stuffed squid with vegetables and Fried seafood roll
Grilled squids filled with mince vegetables (carrots, cabbages, green onions, onions and other vegetables) are worth trying at Phu Quoc Night Market. If you would like to eat fried rolls, long crispy Fried seafood and vegetable rolls will satisfy your taste.
Vietnamese honeycomb cake with palmyra sugar
Warm sweet, airy, sticky, greasy cakes, made from palmyra sugar, topped with shredded coconut meat are great choices of sweets lovers.
Ice cream roll
There are more than 10 Ice cream roll stalls in the market. You can ask a vendor to add syrup, watermelons, strawberries, chocolate and other extras to your ice cream. They mix the ingredients on a special frozen flat pan, spread it into a thin layer on the pan and roll into rolls using special tools. The sound created by mixing ingredients on the pan is funny.
