Cao lau Hoi An

Authentic Cao Lau is made only with water drawn from the local Ba Le well.


Cao lau is the foremost traditional Hoi An food. The dish is made of xa xiu, fresh raw vegetables, grilled ground nuts and cao lau noodles.

Soft sweetened pieces of xa xiu served with a slight crunchy texture of raw vegetables and dried pancakes make an awesome taste.

The best places where you can enjoy cao lau are Mrs. Lien’s store in Thai Phien St., and Trung Bac restaurant near Cau pagoda.
