The contesting teams aredivided into two tables with table A for the localities with 8/9 districts, townand city. All of the teams have been well prepared. With the theme “strongflavor and taste of Nau region”, one of the factors highly raised being todevelop the distinguishing materials of the locality and the traditional flavorof the dishes, like Song Hinh introducing boi soup, milpa rice , beef grilledwith mountain fruit peel dipped in yellow ant salt; Tay Hoa with nhet fishcooked in mushrooms and ginger leaves; Dong Hoa district with carp cooked inPhu Yen gingsen; Phu Hoa with stone shell steamed in pepper ad lemongrass…
