When Hoi An became a UNESCO World Heritage Site, all mobile stalls were relocated to the Central Food Market, in an attempt to improve street cleanliness. Head here and you will eat like a king (or a local) for hardly any money. Prices are fixed at 20-25,000 VND (less than one dollar) a dish depending on serving size. Wash down with the traditional nước mía, sugar cane juice.

Bale Well is located on Ba Le Well Lane on the edge of Hoi An’s Old Town and is extremely popular with locals. Bale Well refers to an ancient well where locals would source water for Hoi An specialty cao lầu, a thick noodle soup of pork or seafood. Don’t eat before you get to Bale Well because you will leave extremely well-fed, having tasted a huge range of dishes, as encouraged by the friendly owner: try the bánh xèo, the Hoi An version of these pancakes is a specialty.

Bánh mì is a Vietnamese sandwich containing pickled vegetables, pâté, salad, and a filling of your choice. At Bánh Mì Phượng, you will find Hoi An’s most delicious bánh mì. It is a great place to eat at if you are craving some Western food with a Vietnamese slant, all of which can be enjoyed from a stall at a table, just as the Vietnamese do it.
