Experience Hoi An Cuisine in a special way


During the last tour in Hoi An, me and my little family had a wonderful experience with cuisine of Hoi An, Quang Nam. For tourists, this is a place of traditional value with old houses, ancient ruins, ancient temples, but for us, cuisine is the most interesting thing. We not only want to eat but we also want to do more. While searching online before the trip I found Hoi An Cooking & Ancient Town Tours of Eviva Company. We decided to book this tour and we were not disappointed.

We had one full day to learn some signature dishes of Hoi An in a very special way. In the morning we visited the gardens where local farmers work. The farmers plant trees, leaves used in cooking. All farmers care and harvest their product by hand rather than using machines. This made me feel strange but it could be a reason why those ingredients have great flavor. Then we were taken to a market where everyday people buy ingredients for cooking. We had chance to buy the ingredients needed to cook dishes our self with the help of local guides. We learned how to bargain with the seller on price. That made me and my kids so enjoyed.

Back to the hotel we stayed, hotel restaurant chef was the person who directly guides us to cook traditional dishes of Hoi An. It was really hard to start learning how to cook strange dished in a different country, but luckily we finished some signature dishes of Hoi An with the help of the chef. Finally we got to enjoy our products, it was not good but my wife , my children and I still felt happy with that.

After learning how to cook Hoi An we had evening time to admire the beauty of Hoi An and the cuisine there. Food there is really tasted great and it’s very good for your health when vegetables, meat, fish and spices make an amazing combination in dishes. This is a great experience for me, especially for my wife and my children. My kids have learned a lot after this exciting tour.
