2. What time does it open?
Few people may know that this place is used as a parking lot during the day. Around 5 p.m., the kiosks and stalls in the area were set up, rapidly changing their appearance. The atmosphere of the night market is very lively. The market gradually becomes fewer people from 10:00 pm to 11:00 pm according to the season and ends before 2 am the next day.

In the middle of the cold, sitting on a charcoal stove and waiting for the skewers to cook is attractive. The grilled skewers here are also quite cheap. You only need a few tens of thousands and two plastic chairs to have a warm party.

If you come to Con Dao, it would be a mistake to miss this dish, with its cool, fatty flavor and sweet coconut water that will satisfy visitors when they come to enjoy it.

5. Grilled balut

Balut eggs are boiled, then peeled, put the whole egg in a bowl, grill on a charcoal stove, and add a little "specially made" salt and chili sauce. The sauce is not too salty, not too spicy, slightly sweet but delicious. Mixed with eggs, it gives a strong aroma, along with a few coriander, onion fat, and peanuts so it's extremely yummy.

 There are also some types of rustic pancakes from all regions such as Binh Thuan pancakes, banh khot, and fried shrimp cakes,...
