There are a total 8 types of herbs while the home-grown vegetables including salad, basil, and many others.

It helps the drinker eat better, sleep better; strengthen the muscle of the elders, diarrhea, digest illnesses. It also helps patients with kidney diseases.

Grilled Jack mackerels or Trachurus: Many people know about the famous sardinella salad but not about the equally flavorful Jack mackerels.

In the calm day of the sea, maybe you can catch a few but in the rough sea, it is impossible to find one. There are also many to make the fish but the best and also the simplest is to steam and dip in lemon salt-n-pepper sauce.

Sea Urchin: Sea urchin, or the spike ball, is an amazing dish that you should definitely try when visiting Phu Quoc. Among many sea species, not one is as good as the sea urchin, especially its eggs. Split the urchin in half, the ball is hollow but there is meat stuck to the surface.
