“#Vietnamese crepe #23 Hoàng Diệu street , Hải Châu district Bánh xèo (literally translated to “sizzling cake”) is a Vietnamese-style crepe (or some call it a “pancake”) indigenous to Da Nang‘s region, Quang Nam province in Central Vietnam. Savory, crispy, crunchy, herby, meaty goodness…all wrapped up to your liking in a beautiful little rice paper roll. The actual “crepe” is simply made with rice flour, water and turmeric, then cooked on a piping hot pan until it turns a gorgeous bright yellowy-gold, then filled with a variety of shrimp, pork and sprouts.”

Church
“Da Nang Cathedral was built by French priest Louis Vallet in 1923, with a pink-painted edifice that earns its reputation as one of the most unique catholic churches in Vietnam. Standing at 70 metres, it’s also known as Con Ga Church (Rooster Church) due to the imposing bell tower that’s topped with a rooster weathercock. The church features a simple interior design of engraved motifs, rhombic-shaped arches, medieval-style stained glass windows of various saints, and statues depicting events from the Holy Bible. There’s also a grotto of the Blessed Virgin Mary set behind Da Nang Cathedral, which is a replica of the Lourdes Grotto in France. As the only church in Da Nang, it serves the local Catholic community of over 4000 parishioners to this very day. Services are held in different languages daily, with English-spoken sermons on Sundays at 9:00. If you’re looking to visit this church for Mass, make sure to head there early due to limited seats. Entrance to Da Nang Cathedral is also free of charge. The cathedral is located along Tran Phu Street, about a 15-minute walk from the iconic Dragon River Bridge. Aside from its impressive Gothic-style architectural structure and quiet surroundings, Da Nang Cathedral is great for escaping the bustling city centre as its high tower offers a stunning view of the city, Han River, and verdant mountains.”
