Discover the Old Town of Hoi An after the sun has gone down — not only is it the best way to escape the midday heat, it’s also the perfect excuse to dig into its tasty street food scene! Our Hoi An food tour starts around sunset and will walk you through local cafes, food stalls, markets, and restaurants, giving you a filling food adventure for the memory books. First up – a local bakery that has been making the tastiest banh mi in town for many generations. They use the freshest local ingredients and are famous for their banh mi, a scrumptious sandwich that will fire up your taste buds and get them ready for the flavours ahead! From one local fave to another, next, we’ll join locals at a small eatery, taking a seat on the ubiquitous small plastic chairs and sampling tasty BBQ pork rolled with rice paper and fresh herbs. Served with typical soya dipping sauce, this dish is one of the highlights of the local food scene and an absolute must-devour. Our food tour of Hoi An continues into the atmospheric heart of the local taste as we head straight for the local eating spots. Your knowledgeable local guide will walk you through the colorful array of ingredients, filling you in on the most popular dishes in Hoi An and the significance of these foods to the traditional culture of central Vietnam. From here, we’ll dig even deeper into the local food scene, passing through a maze of tiny alleys to emerge at one of our fave (secret) restaurants in Hoi An, where we’ll sample the Hoi An’s specialties: Cao Lau local noodles with pork and a nice wonderful sesame and peanut hot milk, or you may get another choice of Chicken rice instead. Believe it or not, there’s more food to come! Our Hoi An food tour continues to another selection of food. Be sure to save space though, as we still have yet another treat in store for dessert and a local beer. We’ll finish our Hoi An food adventure at a local hideouts bar of the town which you will have a chance to taste the local infused sake and reflect on your fave dishes of the evening (if you can pick!).
