What to eat in Hoi An

Bánh bao vac (white roses)
a type of shrimp dumpling made using two round sheets of rice paper. A bit like ravioli, really.

Ban Xeoh

Grilled squid


Peeled fruits.

Springroll with lattice skin wrap and yam filling is my favourite. Chinese style spring rolls have white radish and carrot fillings. But in Hoi An, the black fungus, prawn and steamed yam filling with lattice wrap remains quintessentially Vietnamese.

And fish sauce. Smuggle two bottles back, tightly wrapped. The most expensive glass bottled and from the island of Phu Qoc. But make sure you plastic wrapped the bottles or you’ll stink up your suitcase.
