Hoi An Anthony Bourdain Banh Mi

Hoi An

  • See
    • Old town – do it, it’s very nice to see and there’s a lot to taste. Take a grab.
    • Japanese covered bridge – check if it’s still there cause it’s being renovated 
    • Assembly hall of the Fujian chines – it’s not that spectaculr
  • Do
    • Bicycle outside of Hoi An (?)
  • Stay:
    • Was recommended this home stay (I stayed at a friend’s so wasn’t able to test it out myself)
  • Eat 
    • Banh Mi Phuong – LEGITTTTT. Anthony Bourdain recommendation too. DEFINITELY worth the hype. Go once, go twice, go every day!!! Best Banh Mi I had in Vietnam.
    • The food hall in Hoi An old quarter with food stalls – YES. good food and cheap food. Can taste everything, I tasted:
      • Banh cuon- stuffed rice flour pancake I like
      • Banh vac – white rose dumplings – had them at Pho Xua, good there
      • Banh bot loc – rice dumplings with dried shrimps and beans – I liked too 
    • Well coffee – nice and quiet in a side street. Don’t take the purple coffee
    • Dessert at Tre nguon – I had thap cam (jelly, red beans, coconut sauce, corn) I liked it very much
    • Recommended to me, didn’t have the chance.
      • Drinks at Mot
      • Eat at Morning glory
      • Eat broken rice and chicken at Com ga ba buoi (Phoebe) 
      • Bale well – pork skewers
