The event attracted 32 restaurants, hotels and eateries in five Central Highlands provinces, encouraging the use of coffee as an ingredient.
Speaking at the opening ceremony, Vice Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee H’Yim Kdoh said the contest will enable artisans to introduce traditional food to visitors, thus enriching Vietnam’s cuisine culture.
From March 9 – 16, local food will be available at the tourist area from 8am – 6pm.
