1. Cao Lau

When referring to delicious cuisines in Hoi An, we cannot help mentioning “Cao Lau”. This yellow noodles dish is served with shrimp, pork, raw vegetables, and a little broth. The yellow of these noodles is made from the mixture of ash from local plants. Especially, “Cao Lau” is made from crunchy noodles, not as soft as normal ones. As a result, you can mix noodles freely without fear of crushing. 


Moreover, the vegetables to be eaten along with the noodles must be from the organic vegetable village of Tra Que. Hoi An citizens often eat “Cao Lau” with bean sprouts in boiling water and let them cook to medium. The next step is pouring bean sprouts into a bowl, place the noodles on top, add a few slices of minced meat, then place crispy pork skin.
