When visiting Mui Ne, we never fail to visit Cay Bang Restaurant situated just as you enter the main strip where resorts are.
Cay Bang offers Vietnamese cuisine speacializing in seafood! Yum! Our favorite is this raw fish salad. Really, really good! I actually insist on going here just for this. So what you do is take the rice paper, put in the veggies and fish, roll, and dip in the sauce. I haven’t seen this anywhere in Saigon. If you do know a place, please, please let me know!
The fish salad don’t look like much but it’s really good. It’s marinated with peanuts and chili.
The trouble though with Cay Bang is that none of their servers know English. Maybe just a little but otherwise, it’s really difficult to convey what you want to eat. The menu is in English so that helps. If you’re unsure of what seafood you want cooked, you can go down the aquariums, and choose.
During peak season, Cay Bang is filled with diners. You have an option to dine downstairs where you have a view of the sea or upstairs which is more organized. One time we ate downstairs and it rained pretty hard and water seeped through the roof. 😦 But of course we continued on eating. It was that good. 😛
We ordered seafood fried rice and when by the sea, seafood is a must. So we ordered 500 grams grilled shrimps which we dipped in lemon and salt and pepper.
And of course the 500 grams grilled squid! Writing about this is making me hungry.
We had a feast with just these three. Hubby and I couldn’t finish this off. Our son was no help.
When you do get to try Cay Bang, do order the sour soup too. Theirs is one of the best I’ve tried.

Hey Lyra, you can get that raw fish salad and lots of other stuff at a place called Din Ky 137C Nguyen Trai In D1. It’s on the same side of the street as Pho 99, a little ways up. Have you checked out Pho 99 yet? Great for beef lovers!
Thanks Scott for the lead! Will be sure to check Pho99 and Din Ky! 🙂
