Mi Quang is found everywhere here. It's one of Da Nang's most popular dishes.
As discussed earlier, it comes in a few variations – some with strips of meat, normally stewed, others with unwieldy chunks of deceased animal chopped up complete with bones or joints.
It must be entertaining to watch me struggle as I try to nibble the leftovers off bones using only lips, teeth and chopsticks.
I tend to go for boneless, easy-to-eat Mi Quang, and these generally differ with the quality, freshness and variety of salad herbs and greens that you get as an accompaniment.
We do a great chicken Mi Quang recipe at the resort, with juicy chunks of boneless local chicken, amazing herbs and the most vivid greens you can imagine
From time to time we come across nice versions around town, sans bone and oil. The day we found the mi quang featured today, we were en route to the mountains around Da Nang, heading down the road towards Ba Na Hills
There was a small joint was on the side of the main road – empty and dusty with no visible souls. Was this a "Marie Celeste" style restaurant?
Suddenly a guy beckons us in and starts being all brisk and efficient. He snapped out of a slumber like a cat and within 6 minutes had two bowls of Mi Quang happening behind us.
The food was delicious and fresh, tempting me towards a second bowl. As I have a love/hate relationship with my waistline, I suppressed thoughts of seconds, but it was a very tender, moist, boneless version of Mi Quang with fresh tasty noodles and the right mix of herbs and salad.
