Pick up at your hotel at 08:00 or 13:00. Set off on a culinary adventure in Hoi An to discover the flavours and dishes that make this coastal town unique. Alongside an expert local guide, be introduced to the stories behind Hoi An’s most iconic dishes at the town’s most famous eateries.
Start the tour at a local restaurant famous for white rose dumplings. Found exclusively in Hoi An, enjoy these delicacies while marvelling at the work that goes into them. The staff churn out up to 6000 of these dumplings every day and each one is as beautiful as the last. Try and prepare a few of these delicate, filled dumplings before heading onwards to visit a 250-year-old house.
Take the chance to step inside a traditional Hoi An home and see how the locals live (and eat). Stroll around the house, spending time with the host to learn about his daily life. Before moving on, visit his workshop where his skilful hands spend hours creating sophisticated and creative silver jewellery. Marvel at his beautiful creations and, maybe, take home a unique and personal souvenir.
Continue on to find another local staple: Banh can. These crackers are served with quail eggs, pork and a tasty salad and are a Hoi An street food favourite. Pull up a small street side stool and dig in. Alternatively, try an authentic banh mi “Vietnamese baguette”.
Some more specialities await, including grilled pork satay and the famous Cao Lau noodles, before wrapping up the tour with a local Vietnamese coffee - the perfect ending to any meal. Return to your hotel at 12:00 or 17:00.
