According to details given by Gwendal Poullennec, international director of the Michelin Guide, the addition of Da Nang to the Michelin Guide’s family is further proof of the vibrancy and quality of the nation’s culinary scene, as well as of the richness and authenticity of its local food culture.

Along with these traditional specialties or eateries, Poullennec added that Da Nang also offers a lively fine dining scene, shaped by both local chefs making the most of local produce, as well as international chefs who have fallen in love with the city and brought their hometown tastes with them.

Michelin Guide also shared on its official website that Da Nang, globally known as an acclaimed touristic destination, can also be considered a true heaven for food lovers.

It noted that as a proud ambassador of Central Vietnamese cuisine, Da Nang has impressed the Michelin Guide Inspectors with the overall quality and variety of local specialties on offer, including Mi Quang, Bun Cha Ca, and famous Banh Xeo.

“Seafood restaurants, all proposing an abundance of very fresh or live marine creatures, as well as street food delicacies are not to be missed, and the Michelin Inspectors have been taking pleasure sitting by the side of the road to enjoy culinary gems, such as a bowl of congee with braised duck,” the website added.

Local restaurants based in the central city will be assessed anonymously, collectively, and independently by the Michelin Guide Inspectors following five criteria, focusing only on the overall quality of the food.

They include the quality of ingredients, the mastery of cooking techniques, the harmony of flavours, the personality of the cuisine, and the consistency both over time and through the menu as a whole.

The 2024 restaurant selection of the Michelin Guide Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City, and Da Nang will be announced at a ceremony slated for June in Ho Chi Minh City.
