Dining in central Vietnam is a feast for the senses and restaurants in Hoi An are one of the certified hotspots for this colourful cuisine. Start with Cao Lau, Hoi An’s famous specialty noodle dish topped with juicy pork and sharp chili jam. Sample fried wontons and the twist on chicken rice, Com Ga, but do not fill up before having Hoi An’s signature dish, White Rose. Succulent shrimp dumplings steamed to perfection, the recipe for White Rose is a family secret and it is not hard to see why. They may be served everywhere, but this treasure is too valuable to share with everyone.
In addition to the countless noodle shacks and fine Vietnamese restaurants in Hoi An, there are international options for travellers looking for a taste of home or curious about the local twist on an old favourite. From dazzling fusion creations to traditional French food done right, Hoi An caters to every taste bud.
Stroll through town and let your nose guide you to the perfect spot, preferably with a view of the ocean. With fresh seafood, inventive flavours and impeccable ambience, you will not be able to leave this city without a full stomach and a satisfied smile across your face.
