Seafood is sold by weight here, and you can pick your ingredients from the buckets of live crustaceans and shellfish that are on display. Be warned, though, that ordering fish in Da Nang tends to mean ordering the entire animal. Ask the proprietors to make two or more different dishes from the fish, if you want to avoid having too much of the same dish.
