Therefore, during trips to Da Nang, many tourists have visited the pagoda to sightsee, pray, and hear fascinating legends surrounding this exquisite temple.

Introducing briefly about Non Nuoc Pagoda in Ngu Hanh Son, Da Nang:

Non Nuoc Pagoda, also known as Non Nuoc Pagoda, is situated within the scenic complex of Ngu Hanh Son (Marble Mountains) in Da Nang. It is considered both a spiritual center and a famous landmark of Da Nang. Besides its name Non Nuoc Pagoda, the pagoda is also known as Ngu Hanh Son Pagoda or Outer Pagoda, while Tam Thai Pagoda is referred to as Inner Pagoda. It is known that Non Nuoc Pagoda is the earliest among the three Linh Ung Pagodas in Da Nang.

Non Nuoc Pagoda in Ngu Hanh Son, Da Nang

According to historical records, in 1825, during the reign of the 6th Emperor Minh Mang, when Tam Thai Pagoda was rebuilt, it was also the time when Non Nuoc Pagoda was constructed. A plaque was installed with the inscription “Ngự chế Ứng Chơn Tự, Minh Mạng lục niên phụng tạo” (Emperor Minh Mang’s sixth year of reign, creating the Linh Ung Pagoda). Thus, initially, when it was newly built, the pagoda was named Ứng Chơn. Then, in 1891, during the reign of the 3rd Emperor Thanh Thai, it was renamed Linh Ung Pagoda, with the inscription “Cải tứ Linh Ứng Tự, Thành Thái Tam Niên” (Emperor Thanh Thai’s third year of reign, renovating the Linh Ung Pagoda). This name has been retained until today without any changes.

The history of the formation of Non Nuoc Pagoda in Da Nang:

Emerging in 1825 and spanning several centuries with many historical upheavals, Non Nuoc Pagoda has undergone numerous renovations. According to historical records, the precursor of the pagoda was a cave named Tang Chon, dating back to the first half of the 17th century. A virtuous person established a meditation area in front of the cave, called Duong Chon Am. Later, through renovation and transformation, it became Duong Chon Duong. Subsequently, Emperor Gia Long arrived and renamed it Ngự chế Ứng Chơn Tư.

The Non Nuoc Pagoda in Da Nang is over 300 years old

During the reign of Emperor Minh Mang, he rebuilt the pagoda with sturdy and elegant tiled bricks, naming it Ứng Chơn Tư. At this time, he also constructed two stone stairways leading up the mountain, with the western one consisting of 156 steps leading to Tam Thai Pagoda, and the eastern one consisting of 108 steps leading to Ứng Chơn Pagoda. These stairways are still in use today.

Over three centuries, along with the period of wars with France and the United States, and enduring severe natural disasters that the Central Region had to endure, Non Nuoc Pagoda suffered significant damage. However, through various restoration efforts, the pagoda has preserved many of its original architectural features until now. Especially notable are the two golden plaques bestowed by Emperor Minh Mang and Emperor Thanh Thai.

When visiting Da Nang, you cannot miss out on Banh Xeo – a popular and beloved dish in the Central region of Vietnam. Da Nang’s Banh Xeo carries its own unique flavors that you definitely should not miss. Let’s explore together with DanangPrivateCar.com’s the best Banh Xeo restaurants in Da Nang.

Introduction to Da Nang-style Banh Xeo:

The origin of Banh Xeo:

Banh Xeo is a widely popular dish throughout Vietnam, especially in the Central and Southern regions. This special dish has a long history and has always been cherished by the people, becoming a specialty of many regions.

The name “Banh Xeo” comes from the sizzling sound it makes when the batter is poured into the hot pan, which is delightful to the ears.

What makes the flavor of Banh Xeo in Da Nang unique?

Over the years, Banh Xeo in different regions has developed its own distinct flavors to suit the tastes of each area. Generally, the pancake is made from batter and filled with ingredients such as shrimp, meat, squid, various vegetables, and mung bean sprouts, depending on the creativity of the cook. The unique flavors come from the seasoning, the consistency of the batter, and the thickness of the pancake.

Da Nang’s Banh Xeo is characterized by a pancake that is neither too thick nor too thin. The base of the pancake has the right thickness to achieve a crispy texture without being overly hard or soft.

The distinctive and aromatic flavor of Banh Xeo is unmatched.

The yellow color, often derived from turmeric, is a characteristic feature of delicious dishes in Da Nang. Banh Xeo batter is also mixed with a touch of turmeric to create an appealing color.

One of the significant differences and unique aspects of dishes served with dipping sauce is the sauce itself. Da Nang’s Banh Xeo has a distinct flavor thanks to its special dipping sauce. Instead of using a sweet and light dipping sauce, the authentic Da Nang flavor is achieved by dipping the Banh Xeo into a smooth and rich sauce. This sauce is made from pork liver, peanuts, sesame seeds, and other ingredients blended together to create the “specialty” dipping sauce of the region.

Having a suitable transportation option is essential to quickly enjoy dishes like bánh xèo and other delicacies in Da Nang. DanangPrivateCar provides private car services with professional drivers in Da Nang. With their experienced team, they can help you make the most of your trip and enjoy a wonderful vacation in Da Nang. Book your trip now to receive the best advice and planning assistance.

Ingredients for pancakes

Prepare the ingredients.

Pancake ingredients:

  • Rice flour or 1 packet of pancake flour mix.
  • 1 packet of crispy frying flour.
  • 300g of beef or pork belly.
  • 300g of fresh shrimp.
  • 3 eggs.
  • Basic seasonings, cooking oil, fish sauce.
  • Lettuce, spring onions, bean sprouts, cabbage, herbs, etc.
  • Rice paper wrappers.

Dipping sauce ingredients:

  • Pork liver
  • Fresh milk
  • Ground meat
  • Chopped shallots and minced garlic
  • Peanut oil
  • 1 teaspoon of cornstarch
  • Soy sauce
  • Roasted peanuts and sesame seeds.

Preparing Danang-style Banh Xeo.

Step 1: Preparing the ingredients

  • Clean the shrimp and meat. Cut the meat into small, bite-sized pieces. Peel and remove the heads of the shrimp. Drain the excess water from the shrimp and marinate them with seasonings such as cooking oil, salt, pepper, sugar, and MSG.
  • Wash the vegetables thoroughly, including the bean sprouts, and let them drain.

Step 2: Making the batter

  • Mix the rice flour or banh xeo flour with the crispy frying flour. Stir them together and gradually add filtered water to the mixture. Pour the water slowly while stirring to avoid clumps and achieve a smooth consistency.
  • Separate the egg yolks from the egg whites. Beat the egg yolks until well blended and remove any air bubbles. Add the beaten egg yolks to the batter and mix thoroughly. This step is crucial as it determines the crispiness or softness of the banh xeo.
  • Add a little turmeric powder to give the banh xeo a beautiful golden color when cooked. Let the batter rest for about 15 minutes before moving on to the next step.

Step 3: Frying the banh xeo

  • Heat a pan over medium heat and evenly coat it with a moderate amount of cooking oil.
  • Add the meat, shrimp, squid, etc., to the pan and stir-fry gently to ensure the fillings are cooked evenly.
  • Scoop a portion of the batter onto the pan. It is recommended to use a thin layer of batter to achieve a crispy texture without being too hard or chewy.
  • When the banh xeo is cooked, add some bean sprouts and green onions on top, then fold the banh xeo in half using a spatula. Transfer it to a plate and proceed to make the next banh xeo.
  • Enjoy the Danang-style banh xeo while it is still hot and crispy.

Making the dipping sauce for banh xeo.

Regardless of the dish, the dipping sauce determines 50-60% of its deliciousness. Banh xeo is no exception. That’s why making the dipping sauce is extremely important.

While letting the batter rest, you can prepare the dipping sauce so that when the banh xeo is ready, you can enjoy it immediately while it’s still hot.

  • Dilute the cornstarch with water.
  • Clean the pig’s liver and soak it in fresh milk to remove toxins. Then mash or grind the pig’s liver while keeping its texture.
  • Marinate and mix the pig’s liver with ground meat, minced garlic and shallots, fish sauce, salt, and sugar for about 15 minutes.
  • Heat a pan and stir-fry the garlic and shallots until fragrant, then add the mixture of pig’s liver and cook until the liver changes to a dark color. Add bean sauce and boiling water to the pan and stir well. Then pour the diluted cornstarch mixture into the pan to create a smooth consistency.
  • Finally, turn off the heat and add crushed peanuts and roasted sesame seeds to enhance the rich and aromatic flavor of the dipping sauce.

Review of Danang-style banh xeo.
