Banh canh, a kind of noodle, creates a different taste when cooking with fish making it a specialty of Phu Quoc. Thu fish is the most popular choice to cook the dish. It is served hot in a bowl full of noodle and soup with some Thu fish fillets on top.
There are three kinds of Thu fish that can be found in a same bowl: the boiled fish, the fish ball and the deep-fried fish fillets. The various ways the fish is cooked and served makes the taste more diverse.
A recommended place to try the dish is Banh Canh Lady Phung. It locates in a small alley from Nguyen Trung Truc street. Phuquoc explorer will surely love it!
