It's a name that sticks in your head. When I saw it on gmaps it certainly caught my eye because it's a little bit nasty sounding. As it turns out that might have been a little bit (or entirely) intentional because this place is fantastic and is now one of my favorite hangouts in the whole city. Fortunately it is within staggering distance of my condo as well. Oh, and the place is not dirty at all, it was impeccably clean.
First and foremost, Dirty Fingers is a pub that sells food. They have a ton of flavors on tap and loads of booze choices from all over the world. The big feature for me is if you want to order Vietnamese beers, they are super cheap. I think the lagers from this country such as Larue and Saigon Special are just fine, so it works for me!
While there isn't hardly anyone in my picture, the place gets pretty busy and has some pretty great live music on that stage in the back there - of course that is not really what is happening now because it is kind of up in the air right now as to whether places are allowed to be crowded at the moment.
The menu is filled with pub favorites at reasonable prices. They have all sorts of fried stuff with cheese, which is my favorite food. Chicken wings, jalapeno poppers, onion rings, and the occasion something or other that might be considered somewhat healthy such as hummus is on there as well.
While I did say that this place is cheap, this is only true in relation to the western world's standards. Compared to other such establishments in town, this is one of the more expensive places that you can go. To put it into perspective, I was there recently for a UFC event and sat at the bar eating and drinking for 3 hours. I had a reasonable amount of beverages and by the time I left I had spent nearly $20.
This is still cheap, yes? It certainly is in my book. As hard as it might be to believe this is about twice as much as the same activities would cost elsewhere in Da Nang.
It's worth it to me to really break the bank and spend over $6 an hour here because the atmosphere and overall comfort is fantastic at Dirty Fingers.
Overall, Dirty Fingers has established itself as one of my go-to places for food that you know is friggin terrible for you and a bunch of booze. The staff have been excellent in the 3 times that I have attended and I will definitely be back. Thus far it is one of the top places I have found in this city.
