Café 43 in Hoi An, Vietnam.

I found this restaurant online and was curious to check it out because it has killer reviews and now I understand why. The food is local, extremely inexpensive, friendly staff and the local draft beer costs $0.16 a glass.

These are White Rose dumplings, a Hoi An specialty. Homemade rice wrapper filled with sprouts, ginger, pork and onion with a chili vinegar dipping sauce.


Fried tofu with carrots, onions, tomatoes, pineapples and black pepper.


Banh Xeo, another Hoi An specialty. You roll these as you eat right at your table: fresh rice paper, crepes made from rice flour and turmeric, shrimp, sprouts, egg and lots of fresh herbs and then you dip them in a sweet garlic fish sauce. I thought it was absolutely fantastic!
