Unsurprisingly, seafood is a serious feature of most menus. There are a couple of seafood strips in the centre of town, south of the post office along Halong Str. The strip nearest the post office is on the slide and several places have been converted to souvenir shops in the last couple of years. However, the second strip, a few hundred meters south, is still going strong. Aim for the places with fresh seafood in tanks out the front, or gravitate to where the locals a dining. All have tables inside and spill out onto the pavement at night. These are good places to indulge in a beer in the absence any real bars in town.
