Mung Bean Cookies

  Mung bean cookies are delicious little snacks that you can find only in Hoi An. Each cookie has an intricate oriental pattern pressed into it. They're sweet and a little bit salty, and a great snack. These cookies are more difficult to make than you may think because the process has many steps.  How mung bean cookies are made: First, the mung beans are soaked in water for at least 2 hours in order to remove the shell. After this step, the beans are boiled for 1 hour and then mashed up with a mixture of sugar and salt.…

The Best Phở in Saigon

Phở - the archetypal dish of Vietnam. Travellers from far and wide come to Vietnam, hoping that they will eat the best bowl of Phở. We've been in Saigon for a long time, and we think we've found the best bowl of Phở in Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City). It's a super local place where you'll rarely see a tourist at a table. First- we need to explain what makes one bowl of pho better than another. There's a few key components to Phở, which are combined in a bowl for one outstanding meal. You'll be craving this dish for…

The Nomadic Boys Take a Foodie Adventure!

  The Nomadic Boys are big foodies. Stefan & Sebastien have been travelling & eating their way around Asia since 2014, so they've tried a massive variety of cuisines, delicacies, and experienced many cultures (they even have great recipes!).

These guys were ready to hit the streets on our vintage Vespas for an evening packed of delicious Vietnamese dishes. "Our favourite part of Vietnam for local food was around the centre of…

No Springs Attached

  Take a second and think of a bed. Any bed. Your bed. You’re probably thinking of a sumptuous, thick, comfortable mattress, right? Well, in Vietnam, things are a little different. Your typical mattress here is a thin handmade sleeping mat made out of dried reeds and laid either on the floor or on a raised platform. This helps keep the ‘sleeper’ cool in the tropical heat and ‘beds’ can be quickly assembled and therefore put away to make more cooler space indoors during the day. Take our ‘Countryside & Islands Explorer’ into the beautiful Hoi An countryside and see…

Meet the People of Vietnam – Thanh the Bridge Builder

Meet Thanh. He builds an astonishing 300 meter bamboo bridge every year in Hoi An, Central Vietnam. This bridge must be well maintained and rebuilt yearly due to the large amount of flooding that occurs during the rainy season in Hoi An- around October through December. Since this river can be dangerous to cross by boat or ferry, the government allows Thanh to build this bridge to give people a safe crossing in the countryside. Him and his family live right next to this bridge, and charge a small fee for people to cross.  Want to see this bridge for…

Mì Quảng – Central Vietnamese Noodle Dish

The Noodles of Quảng Nam If you're in Hoi An, you have to try Mì Quảng. This delicious noodle dish is famous in the Quảng Nam Province (hence the name Mì Quảng, or "Quang noodles"). You can find it in other cities such as Saigon, but if you're coming to Central Vietnam we suggest you hold out on trying Mì Quảng til you get here. It's a popular breakfast dish, but you can also find Mì Quảng for lunch before 1:00pm. One bowl of this deliciousness typically costs around 15,000-20,000VND (about $1 USD!).    Meet My. My runs a classic Vietnamese red tabled street food vending spot…

A nice review from Liz Harding. Thanks a lot Liz.

Vietnam by Vespa Let me start by saying, this is one of the best things I’ve ever done – I hope this post is able to do the awesomeness of these tours justice!

She absolutely raved about their tour, despite her initial reservations, and made sure to drill it into my head as a must-do when she found out I was heading to Vietnam (not that I needed much convincing)....
