A full-flavored Hoi An adventure
Vietnam's cuisine is renowned for its abundance of colorful vegetables and herbs, fresh seafood, and brilliant balance of flavors. Take a bike tour with a culinary twist to discover all the best of Hoi An’s traditional cuisine.
Begin your day tour by cycling out of the winding streets of Hoi An's charming Old Town and towards your first mouthwatering food tasting. Sample the city's best Banh Mi, a light baguette with a fluffy interior, packed with various fillings and condiments, creating a harmonious combination of savory, sweet, and tangy flavors. The combination of the crusty banh mi bread, tender meats, tangy pickled vegetables, and a medley of sauces creates a delicious explosion of taste and texture.
Your next stop on this bicycle tour is a genuinely once-in-a-lifetime experience as you sample Hoi An's signature dish: Cao Lau. The dish typically consists of thick rice noodles, slices of roasted pork, bean sprouts, fresh herbs, and crispy rice crackers. The noodles in this dish are truly unique, prized for their special texture and smoky flavor - they are made with water from an ancient well in the town, and with the ash of a particular tree found only in the Cham Islands, an archipelago near Hoi An. You'll also get to help your host prepare your meal by harvesting fresh herbs from their garden!
Cycle on for a sizzling pancake dish called Banh Xeo, regularly eaten as both a starter and main course. Served fresh from a sizzling skillet, you'll tear off a piece of the crispy pancake, place it on a lettuce leaf, and add some herbs before rolling it up. Savor the combination of textures and flavors and their unique harmony: the crispiness of the pancake, the freshness of the herbs, and the tasty savory filling.
A historic French presence in Vietnam has left behind a tradition of cheesemaking and this industry has enjoyed a resurgence in recent years. The next culinary escapade on this family-friendly guided tour is an opportunity to sample some of the fruits of Hoi An's quality cheese-mongering renaissance. Paired with craft beer, rice wine, and other non-alcoholic drink options, this stop will introduce you to cheese platters Vietnamese-style!
As you ride towards the end of your route, you may catch the scent of perfectly seasoned fish and meat sizzling on a charcoal grill. Follow this mouthwatering aroma towards the penultimate stop of your bike tour. Park your bike and sit with views over the rooftops of the historic quarter for a feast of Vietnamese barbecued meats, fish, and vegetables.
Make sure to leave some space for the very final stop on this gastronomic adventure of epic proportions for a small, sweet treat to finish. Sit down in a local cafe for some traditional Vietnamese sweets, while discussing your favorite food-tasting experiences of the tour with your fellow cyclists and guide. After covering the city's culinary delights, take an historic turn on your next day tour with the Hoi An to My Son Bike Tour to discover the ruined temple city of the Champa Kingdom.
