Food is an important part of Vietnamese culture. When you walk on Vietnamese street, you'll find markets and food vendors everywhere. Known as a "food paradise", Hoi An is a cooking hot spot with Vietnamese local delicacies. Tourists can't leave Hoi An without trying the local foods like the signature dish Cao Lau, a dark pork broth with yellow noodles, or Chicken Rice made from fluffy rice mixed with chicken in small pieces. Other must-have foods include Quang Noodle and White Rose, a type of shrimp dumpling shaped in a rose.
