Nem lụi

Nem lụi or lemongrass skewers is known as one of the top choice when you travel to Da Nang and want to be local genuine foodies. It becomes more irresistible when the incredibly delicious grilled pork and dipping sauce pervade streets and tempt any hungry stomach. People may see its shape like a chicken thigh.

Trying Nem lụi when they are still hot maybe most delicious, so it is normally served in the afternoon or evening rather than in the morning. The dish is the harmonious combination of various flavors: aroma of browning meats, slight spicy of peppers and chillies, the sweetness of viscous sauce and fresh vegetables.
