Halong squid sausage is well-known not only in all three parts inside the country but also for international tourists. True to its name, the main ingredient is squid. However, it is said that no kind of squid can make the squid sausage as wonderful as Halong Bay’s squid. It must be fresh squid that is newly caught.

This dish is recommended to serve with pure peppered fish sauce. The sweet fatty squish sausage will marry with savory sauce to tease your taste buds.
