Cao lầu – Cao Lau Noodle

This Hoi An specialty you don’t want to miss. Well, this is actually being served all over Vietnam but there is something special about Cao Lau in Hoi An. This food does not taste the same elsewhere. Other provinces and cities may try to imitate the appearance of the food but never the taste of it. This is because of the water used in preparing and cooking the dish. The water is drawn from Ba Le well which is dug by the Cham people hundreds of years ago. The water gives different taste and texture to the noodle.

Hoành Thánh – Wanton

This is originally from China. This has been introduced by Chinese traders a long time ago when Hoi An still serves as one of the common trading port in Southeast Asia. In time, locals revised it to suit their taste. Though most of the ingredients are the same with the normal Chinese wanton, the taste is never the same. Enjoy it fried or steamed.
