Chao Tom (Sugarcane Prawn)

Hotel Da Nang near My Khe beach said Chao tom is a type of grilled appetiser that’s made of shrimp and garlic paste wrapped around a piece of sugarcane. Soft, rich, with a sweet-savoury flavour, the meaty paste is then removed from the sugarcane, wrapped in lettuce leaves with local herbs, and dipped in nuoc cham dipping sauce. Hotel Da Nang near Pham Van Dong beach said Chao tom is often paired with local beer or wine. Alternatively, you can also chew on the sugarcane to enjoy its sweet juice.
