Snails in Halong Bay

Halong is known for its range of fresh and delectable seafood specialties including as crabs, prawns, and specially snails, and is favored by Mother Nature as an absolutely gorgeous coastal province.

Gourmets visiting any random snail restaurant in Halong may be amazed by the huge variety of distinct, unique snails available. Each species has a distinct appearance as well as a different flavor. It's a waste of time to visit Halong Bay and not sample these delicacies.

Because the variety of Halong snails makes it difficult to memorize all of their names, let alone their distinct appearances, let us just list a few popular meals, such as ốc hương, ốc đĩa, ốc gai to, ốc vặn, ốc mút, and ốc len. You only have two options: be an adventurous traveler and sample a random meal that catches your eye, or go with a local who can show you the differences between the cuisines. Despite the fact that Halong chefs use the same method for making dipping sauce for practically all snail meals, which includes fish sauce, rice vinegar, chili, sugar, and ginger, you may notice subtle variances when tasting different dishes in Halong.

Gourmets who want to eat snails in Halong may need to employ a local tool, a bizarre long pin, to pry the snail from its shell. Unlike snails in other areas of Northern Vietnam, Halong snails are reported to always lie deep inside their shells. If you use this tool correctly, you will be able to defeat any Halong snails. Some snail species, on the other hand, can be eaten without the use of any tools, simply by sucking or bumping the snail into your plate.
