Eating tin Dong Van
The dishes in Dong Van are also typical dishes in Ha Giang, which can be found everywhere in the province. However, in Dong Van, visitors will have many famous addresses to choose from.

Banh Cuon
Ingredients for this dish include rice flour, meat, wood ear, bones, spring rolls and spices. The dough is soaked overnight to soften and then mixed with spices. When guests come to eat, the freshman pours the dough onto the coated mold on the spot to keep it hot. After about 3 minutes, the cake is cooked, then rolled with meat, pre-prepared wood ear, cut short and put on a plate, sprinkled with fried onions and coriander. Unlike banh cuon dipped with fish sauce in many regions, Ha Giang rolls are eaten with broth. The broth is simmered with pork bones, so it has a sweet taste. According to local people, because the mountainous climate is very cold in the morning, people eat banh cuon with soup to warm their body.

Buckwheat cake
The cake is made from buckwheat flower seeds with high nutritional value. To make cakes, after each harvest season, people will dry the seeds, partly used to brew yeast, the rest to make buckwheat cakes. The seeds are ground, then kneaded into a dough and molded into flat, round cakes, more than a hand in diameter. After molding, the cake will be steamed and baked with a charcoal stove, best eaten when hot, with a light sweet taste.

Cakes are sold in markets, roadside shops, near tourist areas.

North Pole Coffee
The North Pole Cafe is located in Lo Lo Chai village, a small village right at the foot of the Lung Cu flagpole, less than 1 km from the Vietnam - China border, in Lung Cu commune. The shop was built by Mr. Ogura Yasushy, a Japanese who has lived in Vietnam for many years and especially loves Ha Giang.
