16 restaurants in Da Nang have for the first time joined the Bib Gourmand list of Michelin Guide that honors dining establishments for serving great food at affordable prices.

They are An Thoi, Ba Dong, Banh xeo tom nhay Co Ba, Be Ni 2, Bun bo Ba Roi, Bun cha ca 109, Bun cha ca Hon, Co chu nho, Indian Aroma, My Quang Sua Hong Van, Nam Hien, Ngoc Chi, Phu Hong, Quan Nhan, Rang and Thia Go, Michelin Guide announced at a ceremony on Thursday night.

Last week, the French food guide added five restaurants in Hanoi and eight in Ho Chi Minh City in its latest Bib Gourmand list.

Last year, 29 restaurants in Hanoi and HCMC received the Bib Gourmand awards.

As a new city in the Michelin culinary guide, Da Nang represents cuisine that reflects French, Chinese and Southeast Asian influences. Dishes in this coastal city leave an impression with fresh ingredients instead of complicated recipes, according to the Michelin Guide.

According to Michelin, Da Nang has impressed its inspectors with the quality and variety of local specialities available such as mi quang (Quang-style noodles), bun cha ca (rice vermicelli soup with fried fish cakes) or banh xeo (fried pancakes).

Da Nang also offers a lively fine dining scene, shaped by both local and international chefs.

The Bib Gourmand awards highlights dining establishments that stand out for their good quality, and good value cooking. Bib Gourmand restaurants are much followed by those who are seeking affordable meals without compromising on quality or flavor, Michelin said.

According to Michelin, its inspectors assess venues based on five criteria: the personality of the chef as presented in the cuisine, the harmony of flavors, the mastery of cooking techniques, the quality of products and the consistency both over time and across the entire menu.

Two restaurants in Ho Chi Minh City and one in Da Nang received one Michelin star at the same ceremony on Thursday night, raising the total number of Vietnam's Michelin-starred dining establishments to seven.
