What list of Vietnamese cuisine would be complete without pho?
It's almost impossible to walk a block in Vietnam's major destinations without bumping into a crowd of hungry patrons slurping noodles at a makeshift pho stand. This simple staple consisting of a salty broth, fresh rice noodles, a sprinkling of herbs and chicken or beef, features predominately in the local diet -- and understandably so. It's cheap, tasty, and widely available at all hours.

I've been to Southern Vietnam with family as a kid and I hated it. I found myself bored to death and glued to my Gameboy Original playing Tetris. Back then, I wasn't at an age to understand or embrace my roots. Things change with age, of course, and now I'm curious about the culture more than ever. I grew up eating incredible Vietnamese food thanks to my mom's home cooking, so the thought of traveling to Vietnam to explore the food scene was very appealing.


In December, Patrick and I took a 10 day trip to Vietnam. Out of the four different places we visited in the country, Hoi An was my absolute favorite. Hoi An is a located in Central Vietnam, south of Da Nang, and was once known as a busy South-East Asian trading port dating from the 15th to the 19th century. The Old Town of Hoi An was untouched by the war, so the buildings are old and retain a lot of its architecture and history. It's no surprise that it is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site because it's truly a magical place to visit. 


If you're anything like me and support local businesses, Hoi An is as local as it gets. The people literally live off of the land and make a living from what grows on the land. You will find that everything you eat in Hoi An is locally sourced within the city. The seafood is fished from the nearest river, the rice flour is milled from scratch using rice from the nearby fields, and the alkaline water used for making noodles and dough are from the local wells.

There are so many different specialty dishes to try in Hoi An and not nearly enough time to eat them all. The three days we spent there wasn't enough, but we tried best to eat as much we could get our mouths on. Each restaurant and street food vendor specializes in specific dishes and you may find no menu available or prices listed anywhere. 

This guide doesn't list everything I ate; it's everything I thought was unique and enjoyed eating and would recommend to anyone planning a visit to Hoi An. There are tons of things that I didn't get to try, such as cao lau (soba-like noodles with roasted pork) and com ga hoi an (chicken rice), which gives us a reason to revisit again in the future.

Hanoi Street Food Tours

Hanoi Street Food Tours

Hanoi is often touted as the land of motorbikes and steamy pho (beef noodle soup). And that's partly true.
Whether you're in the Old Quarter -- the city's beating heart of tradition and trade -- or wandering around peaceful West Lake, just to the north, it's impossible to walk a block without encountering a makeshift noodle stand or an impenetrable wave of Vespas.
But beyond first impressions, the capital of Vietnam has surprises tucked down every alleyway.
To really get a feel for how this Southeast Asia destination is evolving, CNN Travel took to the streets with Hanoi's top artists -- the writers, poets, musicians and trendsetters who keep the city's creative juices flowing.
They shared their favorite coffee shops and sunset spots, alleyways and restaurants for an insiders' guide to rule them all.

Originally from Melbourne, Australia, Mark Lowerson visited Vietnam in 2002 while on vacation.
He tells CNN Travel it was "love at first sight."
"The Old Quarter seemed so exotic, so old-world, so confusing. I wanted to try and work it out," Lowerson recalls.
Soon after, he relocated to Hanoi and worked as a teacher. In 2005, he found his way into the blogosphere with Sticky Rice -- now one of the city's longest-running food blogs.
