This street food tasting tour is an entertaining and informative way to see Hoi An through its food. Visit a local market off the tourist map then sit down to sample a 36 local delicacies - from sweet to savoury, noodles, sticky rice, myriad spring rolls, tropical fruits and dishes only found in Hoi An.
Start at a colourful and friendly 'wet market' where you can meet stall holders to learn more on the huge choice of ingredients on sale, from silk worms, a huge variety of fresh fragrant herbs and vegetables to the meat and fish. Continue along back streets, discovering out-of-the-way producers and street vendors making and selling a wide variety of exotic foods.
The tour ends at a restaurant where the tasting session begins with a wide selection of local delicacies bought directly from the vendors. Learn the names and meanings of different local foods (and how to pronounce the names) as well as the main ingredients and how they should be eaten. This tasting session should give you a deeper understanding of Vietnamese cuisine and the benefit goes back to the vendors as all the dishes are bought directly from them.
