Discover Danang’s Vibrant Street Food Fest

InterContinental Danang Sun Peninsula Resort, the five-star sanctuary on Vietnam’s Son Tra Peninsula, is celebrating the life of Anthony Bourdain, the highly admired and deeply missed American chef, author and TV personality, with a month-long culinary fiesta that strives to be as inspiring as the man himself.

Staged at Citron, the stunning sea-facing restaurant which soars 100 metres above the ocean waves and showcases Vietnam’s distinct regional flavours, the “Vietnam Street Food Celebration: A Tribute to Anthony Bourdain” will immerse guests in the joy of authentic local street food. Anthony was a regular visitor to Vietnam and often spoke about his love of the country’s culture and cuisine, so InterContinental Danang will honour this heartfelt connection in the most appropriate way possible: through fantastic food.

“Vietnam. It grabs you and doesn’t let you go.
Once you love it, you love it forever.”
Anthony Bourdain, 2005
Throughout June 2024, guests can savour a special set menu that highlights some of Anthony Bourdain’s favourite Vietnamese dishes. Starting with the freshness of pork & prawn spring rolls and vibrant green papaya salad, diners can then discover the deep flavour and heady fragrances of beef phở, Vietnam’s iconic noodle soup. A trio of main courses will then present diners with Vietnamese escargots with pork & lemongrass, a tribute to the French heritage that Anthony shared with Vietnam, along with classic pork bánh mì and bún chả, before a delectable dessert of pomelo sweet soup.
This mouth-watering menu will be expertly crafted by Chef Thu Doan, Citron’s highly-skilled Executive Sous Chef, who has delighted diners at InterContinental Danang for more than 12 years.

This culinary festival is more than just a celebration of fabulous food however; guests will also have the opportunity to learn the art of Vietnamese cooking through interactive classes, which also focus on Anthony Bourdain’s favourite recipes, and a barista-led coffee tasting session will shine a spotlight on Vietnam’s unique cà phê culture.

“Anthony Bourdain had a genuine affection for Vietnam and its people. He was a regular visitor to the country and helped to put Vietnam’s cuisine on the international stage with his TV shows. We would like to pay tribute to this wonderful man in the best way possible – through our shared love of food. We look forward to introducing our guests to Anthony Bourdain’s wisdom and vision at Citron,” said Mr. Seif Hamdy, the resort’s General Manager.
