Banh My Ba Lan baguette stall
Thanks to Mrs Lan’s special ingredients, this stall is always crowded with buyers from opening to closing time.

Tu Hai baguette stall
Despite its origins in Gia Lai Province’s Pleiku City, the Tu Hai baguette has become very popular with Da Nang’s residents because of its special ingredients and its amazing buttery flavour.
This type of baguette contains butter, pate, ham, chilli sauce, scallion, and thinly-sliced, unripe papaya. After the ingredients are put into the baguette, the seller will cook the bread in liquid butter in order to make it more sweet-smelling and crisp. It tastes best when it is still hot.
