Places To Eat in Hoi An Vietnam

The food we enjoyed in Vietnam was some of the tastiest I've had anywhere in the world so I knew I wanted to share it with you. We've been back almost a whole month and I still think about how tasty it was. Lots and lots of fish was enjoyed by both Scott and I which made us really happy. Not to mention the about of rice we consumed. It is said that if a meal in Vietnam isn't served with rice then it is just a snack!


Bảo Hân


This little restaurant was close to our hotel so on our first night we took a walk down to try some simple Vietnamese cooking. The spring rolls and fried wontons were a delicious way to start the meal but sharing one would have probably been better because next we both chose fish for our main course. I wish I could remember what I choose because the flavours were fresh and delicious. Scott also really enjoyed the prawns he ordered. 

 At the end of the meal complimentary coconut ice cream was brought over which was a nice touch. This lovely restaurant showed us how nice Vietnamese food can be and set us up nicely for the rest of our trip.

Another restaurant near our hotel caught Scott's eye because of the menu and mine because of the pretty 'outdoor' setting. I think this was one of my favourite meals of the whole trip. I decided on Tuna slow baked in a clay pot. Correct me if I'm wrong but I think this is quite an authentic way to cook fish in Vietnam and I can see why they do it. It was so flavoursome my mouth is watering just thinking about it.

M Bistro


Hoi An pancakes were something I was keen to try while staying in the town so when I spotted them on the menu I knew I had to have them. I was half way through my meal before the lovely waitress came over to show me how to break it up with chop sticks and combine it with the leaves and kimchi in the rice paper. 

Scott really enjoyed his main and the starter we shared was also really tasty. We sat in the doorway of this restaurant over looking the pretty streets of Hoi An's ancient town.

Mi Casa


This family run restaurant couldn't have better reviews on trip advisor. We were greeted at the door by the owner and her daughter who couldn't have been more welcoming. To start we had white rose dumplings which were perfect. Then Scott choose garlicky prawns for main and I picked a spicy fish curry packed with vegetables. We couldn't fault the food and you really felt like you were sharing a meal with the family in their


front room which was nice. Not everyone would like dogs wandering around the restaurant but we loved it.

 Bánh mi Phuọng

On our final day in Hoi An, after walking round the ancient town in the heat for a few hours, we picked up a Bánh mi at this little shop that was always busy. The ordering system was a bit crazy and it took us a while to get our banh mi but it was worth the wait. Fresh bread and tasty filling. Something I really wanted to try in Hoi An and it didn't disappoint. If you head over to my Instagram you'll still be able to see them making it in my Vietnam highlights.

Ms Vy's Kitchen and Deli


We didn't really know where to go on our final evening so after a wander we chose Ms Vy's because it was bright, colourful and modern looking. It was hear I had the tastiest meal of the whole trip. I've been dreaming about it since and really wanted to try and recreate it. Mackerel wrapped in banana leaves and absolutely packed with flavour. You know a dish is good when you are still thinking about it a month later.
