If you’re unsure of what to eat in Hoi An, the market is the perfect place to try some of the local fare. You can choose from a variety of traditional Northern and Southern dishes, or try grilled oysters and softshell crab. You can also choose to eat it in a table barbecue. It’s a popular option for tourists and locals alike, and is the best way to sample authentic Vietnamese cuisine.
If you’re looking for something a little different, then you can try Xi Ma, a hot, black syrup made from black sesame seeds. It has a reputation as being a good pick-me-up during a long journey and is usually sold by street vendors for a mid-afternoon snack. We were lucky enough to be able to try it on our Hoi An Food Tour.

There are several ice cream carts in the area, and some of them even make ice cream curls.
