Ms. Minh Thuong, a resident of Da Nang, shared: "Nuoc in my hometown is also called the green jellyfish, which appears in late spring when the weather is light sunny and windy. The size of the swallow when first picked up was as big as the hand. The swallow will come out of the water and drip gradually, reaching the consumer with only a donut."

In Hue folklore, there are many dishes that are read camp names. For example, saying camp goes from "smoke" cake to "pleasure" cake. The name of the swallow is a similar case.

Nuoc is the name in the dialect of the swallow. Hue people often read camp rhyme "t" into rhyme "c", so "swallow" is turned into "swallow" from time to time. Perhaps this jellyfish is very easy to eat, easy to swallow, so Hue people often rhyme as "swallow", which means eating this dish in the tense... Swallow it all, no need to chew much!

The swallow is only delicious when it is in season and must be very fresh. Moreover, people eat them only for one day, through the next day will no longer be juicy, crunchy.

What season is awake. Every year, in season, the burdens are sold in many markets near the lagoons. The swallows are in baskets, brass containing brackish water, with a few ice cubes to keep them fresh, crispy and delicious. On social media, many people insist on trying the nuoc because they are curious about the taste.

Some have tried it and commented: "The swallow has a slightly salty taste, giving us a sense of the taste of the sea and lagoon, when held in the mouth, it has the sweet cool taste of fresh and sweet seafood."

For many people, the swallow is not only a delicious food, cooling the hearts of both young and old, but it also evokes memories of the idyllic river image in the countryside of Hue people far from home.

However, diners are still willing to spend to have the opportunity to enjoy this fancy and fancy delicacy of Hue.
