Hoi An’s main contribution to Vietnamese cuisine is “cao lau”, doughy flat noodles combined with croutons, bean sprouts and greens and topped off with pork slices. It is mixed with crumbled, crispy rice paper immediately before eating. Other Hoi An specialities are fried won ton, bank xeo (crispy favoury pancakes rolled with herbs in fresh rice papar) and the delicate ‘white rose’ (shrimp encased in rice paper and steamed).

The beauty of Hoi An is that you can find a spectacular cheap meal at the Central Market and in local restaurants in secluded residential lane ways – or you can chose an upmarket eatery, lavish even by Western standards, serving excellent fusion cuisine. There are heaps of such restaurants on Nguyen Thai Hoc street, Tran Phu street and on the waterfront. A newer stretch of eateries and bars is worth exploring, facing the Old Town on the An Hoi riverbank. While a pricey town for Vietnam, it remains a bargain for most visitors.
