Madam Lan Restaurant (Da Nang, Vietnam)

Madam Lan Restaurant apparently on the best Vietnamese restaurants in Da Nang with traditional food and a perfect setting to enjoy a great dinner. On our last night in Da Nang, we were brought to Madam Lan Restaurant for dinner and from the outset it looked promising.

When we entered Madam Lan Restaurant, we were not disappointed. We were seated outside and the tables were already set up nicely. From where we were, even though we were seated outside, the restaurant was nicely designed with a flair of French/Vietnamese colonial style with mainly dark woods as a theme (for the decor, tables and chairs).

The tables were already set up, waiting for our arrival. And if you think those drinks are beer, you are wrong. They were just chrysanthemum drinks disguised as beer! lol Alcohol was additional charge

Thankfully the weather was good that night and no unwanted flies 'guests' dropped into our plates while we were dining. lol To prepare us for the dinner to come, the menu was placed on each table.

It might not have been an 8 course dinner, but it was satisfying enough
Madam Lan Restaurant
Beef salad with vegetables in sweet and sour sauce: this was a delight to eat, appetizing and refreshing at the same time. The beef did not have any strong odor and the sweet and sour sauce definitely whetted the appetite. It was perfect with the prawn crackers that were provided (no photos for those because they were snapped up pretty quickly).
Madam Lan Restaurant
Seafood soup: it tasted similar to the shark's fin / fish maw soup we usually have at Chinese weddings. The flavor was sightly blend, so a dash of pepper and vinegar enhanced the flavor.
Madam Lan Restaurant
Madam Lan's BBQ pork ribs: these were somewhat of a disappointment. Although the pork ribs were well flavored, the ribs were tough and hard to bite through.

Grilled Travaly fish and chilli in banana leaf: the presentation was beautiful and mouth watering

Grilled Travaly fish and chilli in banana leaf: once the banana leaf was opened, the flavorful aroma of the fish permeated the air. The only problem was that the chili was simply too spicy!

Fried broccoli with garlic: simple, fresh and scrumptous
Madam Lan Restaurant
Lotus seed sweet soup: dinner was washed down with this dessert (finally a dessert that isn't watermelon slices!). The soup was slightly sweet, but once the ice melted, it evened out the sweetness and was somewhat refreshing with the aroma of the lotus seeds. The presentation as interesting because instead of serving it in a bowl, it was present in a glass.

Overall, there were some hits and misses with the food, but the ambiance was good - a perfect way to end our time in Da Nang. Once we were done with dinner, a couple of people went to the dragon bridge to watch the 'show' (the dragon spews out water and fireworks), while others went for supper or hung out at the beach to enjoy the night's sea breeze before our departure.
