Com Nha 1989 Restaurants
Our hotel receptionist recommended Com Nha 1989 as it’s a famous restaurant in Quy Nhon for authentic Vietnamese cuisine. It is located in the city centre and popular amongst domestic travellers. When my boyfriend and I arrived at the restaurant, we were amused by its brand new building exterior. And even more so when we entered and saw the modern and spacious interior. This huge restaurant was full of Vietnamese locals and soon after we sat down, some guests had to wait to be seated.
Com Nha 1989 restaurant has two outlets, one of which is called Com Nha 1989 and the other called Bep Nha 1989. Com Nha means home rice and Bep Nha means home kitchen.
Originally, Com Nha 1989 was on Mai Xuan Thoung street with a more traditional interior design. But they moved and reopened on Nguyen Thi Dinh street with a modern setting, which is the restaurant I visited. Bep Nha 1989 restaurant still has the traditional decor. So you have a choice between modern and traditional interiors to try their amazing dishes.
Their menu is very extensive covering all kinds of meat, seafood and vegetables. What I loved about their menu is how they designed it with visually appealing and professional photos of dishes with both Vietnamese and English names. With such a diverse menu to choose from, we wished we had more people to order as many dishes as possible.
We ordered stir-fried pumpkin leaves, stir-fried cucumber with chicken giblets, deep-fried rabbitfish, and claypot shrimp and pork. Pumpkin leaves dish is one of Vietnam’s local dishes that I love and it was fresh and delicious. Stir-fried cucumber is not as common as morning glory or pumpkin leaves, but it’s an absolutely delectable dish because of the juicy and crunchy texture of cucumber. The chicken giblets gave a perfect addition to variety of textures of the dish.
The deep-fried rabbitfish called cá dìa topped with slightly thick sweet and sour fish sauce was inevitably good. Having the fresh green mango on the side made the dish much more enticing. Lastly, the braised shrimp and pork belly in claypot was an excellent bonus to the variety of flavours and dishes.
I loved every dish that I tried here and I wished to have tried more dishes. As Quy Nhon is generally cheaper than bigger cities like Hanoi or Ho Chi Minh, the price at Com Nha 1989 restaurant is also very affordable. For its very well organised service team, clean interior and delicious local dishes, Com Nha 1989 is highly recommended in Quy Nhon!
