  white roses & fried wontons
by richiecdisc

This local institution has become a bit of a tourist attraction and though it might mean you are not the only non-Vietnamese in the place, it does mean someone speaks English so ordering is a lot easier than the old point and eat. The interior is quite nice in an old world sort of way and its Old Town location is quite convenient when out sightseeing.

Favorite Dish: When in Hoi An you should try both fried wontons and white roses and these local delicacies are reasonably priced here. The fried wontons are not the deep fried variety you get in the States but a nicely sautéed version more akin to pot stickers and very tasty indeed. The white roses are shrimp wrapped up like dumplings in dough and steamed. I found the shrimp a bit small but they were nonetheless yummy. The food and a beers came to 68,000 dong (a little over $4).

Address: 22 Nguyen Hue Street
Price Comparison: less expensive than average
Directions: This is just up the street from the Central Market so quite handy when in the Old Town.
