We had the good fortune to travel in a small group of four, guided by Phuoc beyond the typical tourist lines into the more traditional food culture of Hoi An. He was very thoughtful and insightful, not only delivering us to an excellent variety and quality of street foods, but also accompanying these tastes with the city's history and insights into the lives of the chefs who create the food.

Phuoc was flexible, altering his route to provide us with seasonal treats that aren't always available. He was also very mindful, deliberately keeping his tours small to facilitate questions, avoid overcrowding street stalls, and allow every attendee to feel involved in the tour. If you're worried about accents, he speaks English excellently.

I'd recommend the street food tour to anyone who finds themselves in Hoi An. It's a great way to move beyond the confines of the tourist centre and enjoy some more authentic Vietnamese cuisine.

I don't usually write reviews - I think this might be my first ever, but thought this was worth it.

My mother and I attended Eat Hoi An's street food tour with Na, and it was one of the best experiences we had in Vietnam (I've traveled extensively and think it's one of the top tours I've had anywhere). Na and her husband have done an incredible job organizing the tour, making sure we have a variety of foods, that the vendors know we are coming, that the food is of high quality, and that the route is efficient. It's a lot of food over the course of four hours, and by the end we were both stuffed. She was also willing to change the tour based on what we were able / willing to eat as well.

Beyond the food, Na did a wonderful job of making us feel welcome in Hoi An, sharing not just the stories behind the foods themselves, but the stories behind the people who made the food. There is incredible history behind street food, and Na was able to share all of it as someone who grew up in the city and has watched it change. We got to peek behind-the-scenes to better understand the daily rhythms, successes, struggles, conflicts, and challenges of being a street food vendor in Hoi An in a way we didn't expect.

It was such a great way to spend half a day. By the end of the tour, we felt like friends with Na, talking freely about our lives. What a wonderful experience, I really can't say enough about it.

Come hungry, get ready to walk a little, and be prepared to have a great time. Thanks again, Na!

We booked the food tour with Eat Hoi An as it is recommended in the Lonely Planet. Their website needs work as it really doesn’t do justice to the fun and value of the food tour. You are guided to loads of street eat places - I lost count - maybe 15, so arrive hungry!
Phuoc and Na are well known in Hoi An and so we were well cared for at each place, often being introduced to the owners.
The food was really varied, interesting, tasty and well explained. It was a really authentic experience as I don’t recall there being any Westerners in any of the places - just locals sitting on small plastic stools being served and eating the same as us, but without the extra chilli since we don’t like it spicy.
Na also explained many cultural aspects and answered all our many questions as we wandered around the many venues just a couple of hundred metres outside the touristy bit of Hoi An. We went back to some of the stalls bu ourselves some days later as it was really nice and much, much cheaper than the tourist restaurants.
We had a really good time so also went on their cooking tour which included buying the ingredients in the market, cycling to their house through the rice fields, cooking I think 3different dishes, and then eating them in a secluded spot by the riverside. Plus there was also a wander round and explanation of the nearby Tre Que vegetable village which was interesting. In future days we returned to the market sellers that we had visited with Na as she had arranged that we would get locals rather than tourist prices.
Really good fun, really good value and we learned a lot too!

We spent approximately 3 hours with Na wandering the streets of of town Hoi An, sampling various types of Vietnamese food and enjoying Na's commentary on the ingredients used and how the various foods were made. Her knowledge of Vietnamese food as well as of the local food scene was excellent. Her love of Vietnamese cuisine and of her home town was obvious.

Be aware that there are 4 religious vegan days per lunar month, during which many of her stops do not serve meat. We unknowingly chose one of those days, and although we are not vegetarian/vegan, thoroughly enjoyed the food available to us at the various vendors. We also visited many street vendors who we would probably not have visited on our own, and would have missed out on some fabulous food.

Na took us through Hoi An's food market explaining the items required for the meal we'd later be preparing. Her English was excellent and she answered all our questions, not only about food but also all our questions about Vietnam, it was incredibly informative. I wish we did the tour sooner! What's more we learned about some of the farming practices, got to plant some crops, and she taught us all sorts of cooking techniques. It was a lovely experience! We ended the day with enjoying the food we prepared and ate by the breezy river followed by a nice massage.

I should note Na did a wonderful job of incorporating our 3 yr old daughter into the tour keeping her involved as we as entertained which is no easy feat. She some how did all this while also capturing great moments with photos which she also sent to us after the tour.

We had a great time and would certainly recommend doing this tour. If not for the wonderful food eaten on the tour but for the braid food she also fed us.

Thanks again Na!

My wife and I are big fans of food tours and have done them in many places, and I can say without hesitation that Eat Hoi An was by far the best we have ever done! Our guide, a lovely woman named Na, met us at a coffee shop in Hot An ancient town and for the next four hours took us to a dozen or more food stops. We ate at a couple of the more famous places (Bahn Mi Phuong, and White Rose) which were excellent and worthy of their reputations, but what really made the tour special were the numerous street vendors we visited. Most of these chefs had small street-side operations where locals sat around on little plastic stools enjoying the delicious food that was served. Had it not been for Na we would have never found any of these places since they were outside of the touristy ancient town and down funky back alleys. Even if we had found these places, we would probably have just walked right by, oblivious to the amazing food being served there. Thankfully Na, who grew up in Hoi An and knows where all the best food is, took us to all her favorite places and told us each vendor’s backstory, how many generations the recipe had been passed down, how the food was prepared, and how it should be eaten. Each place we went to served a single dish, which was prepared to perfection and each one was some of the best food I’ve ever eaten. We went to so many places I began to loose track of them all. It was an absolutely magical evening, and felt more like being shown around town by an old friend than being just another tourist hoping to sample some good food. If you are planning a visit to Hoi An I strongly encourage you to contact Eat Hoi An before you go and arrange to be taken on this tour.

Eating street food with Mr. Phouc was the highlight of my Hoi An trip. My only regret is not booking his tour on our first day here, so that I could revisit the vendors. Phouc is passionate of his vendors and representing their food. If you want to understand Vietnamese food and how food is made, this is the tour for you.
For example, cao lầu. This was the third time, eating this noodle dish and I'm so glad I got to try it with him because I got to see how sublime it can be. The place he took me to, the noodle is hand made. The texture is rougher hence the sauce clings to it. Also, I assumed cao lầu noodle is an egg based wheat noodle. Nope. It's the technique that gives it the yellowish hue and it's made out of rice.
I tried balut for the first time. After the history of balut and the vendor, how could I not? I ate it with an open mind and found out that it's mild and creamy.
The vendors are selected with care. The papaya salad lady, she doesn't take short cuts. She washes the papaya strips first to remove the sap, followed by wringing them out, so that they soak up the sauce while remaining crunchy.
Phouc is concerned about the future of street vendors and their food. Some of the vendors are aging like the noodle maker, others are cost related of making a dish or ever increasing cost of the changing city. I hope this will not be the case. In the meantime, walk with Phouc and let him show you how food is supposed to taste.

A well thought out and excellent street food tour that I would highly recommend to anyone traveling through Hoi An. The thoughtfulness of the guide included a book with all the stops and a place to jot down your impressions on the food. Also included is a pouch with your own utensils so you won't get sick from any communal utensils at the food stands. Phuoc clearly put a lot of thought into designing this excellent tour!

Now for the food! The food was all delicious. We stopped at many food stands throughout the city we wouldn't have otherwise eaten in. There was good diversity in the types of food we ate, from small snacks, hearty Pho and Banh Mis, and sweets. Even a stop for local beer! Our guide told us all about the traditions of Vietnamese foods, how it has been made traditionally and how it has changed in Hoi An. You should probably show up hungry because you will get a lot of food and you'll want to try all of it.

We traveled from Hanoi to Ho Chi Min City and somewhere in the middle we stopped off in Hoi An. What a beautiful town. Old world buildings, not too busy, just the kind of place to walk around in. We hopped on a scooter and traveled down country lanes. The river on one side, houses on the other. We passed rice paddy's and fish farms. The nicest little town ever. We had a cooking class scheduled. I thought "waste of time" Then we met Na and her team. Her cooking class was an absolute hi-light. Her teaching was delightful. Hands-on. Encouraging. We had a blast making some of the most delicious foods under her supervision. These were cooked for us and did we enjoy our own hand-made foods.
After the meal we were treated to a foot rub. The perfect way to end an incredible cooking and eating experience. If you're in the area, don't miss out on this wonderful opportunity to be inspired by Na. Thank you Na.

Na was an absolute incredible guide, talking us to many vendors - we tasted super delicious food, but she also explained us how the food is prepared, how much time and which ingredients each meal takes and she also told us the personal stories of each of the vendors. We also learnt about the life of Vietnamese families (the schedule and type of meals, when and where to buy food...) and the organization of the city of Hoi An.
It was one of our best experiences in Vietnam!!! I highly recommend it :)
