At Duong Dong‘s dusty day market, severed pigs’ heads can sometimes be seen, staring up from a mass of jumbled offal. Visually this is a photographer’s delight, but it is also a great place to buy exotic fruits, or even fill up on a cheap meal.

As the Gastronomer reported, you can get a bowl of bun cha gio (vermicelli noodles topped with pork/shrimp rolls, assorted greens and herbs, chopped peanuts and a spicy sauce) for 5000 Vietnam Dong (less than US$0.30.) This could well be one of the cheapest meals on Phu Quoc. Barbequed meat ball sandwiches are another bargain snack you might munch in the market.

From 6pm onwards a night market comes alive near the Duong Dong ferry landing, and many cheap food stalls and restaurants set up shop. The night market is a great place to eat, and squid dishes abound. Now some foreigners might feel a little uncomfortable by the idea of eating squid, but it is actually a delicious and healthy white meat.

If you have a chance try the squid stuffed with minced pork because it is a Vietnamese specialty. Other dishes you might devour in the night market are shrimps in tamarind sauce and deep-fried squid. If travel to Phu Quoc, never forget to visit Duong Dong and night market.
