Why Thanh Cao Lau is special ?

Thanh Cao Lau is a great place to enjoy the best Hoi an Cao Lầu. Thanh, owner, makes one dish: cao lau. And she does it very well. Ask locals where to eat good cao lau and they’re likely to point you to this garage/patio/eatery just outside the historic center of town.

Must try dishes:

Cao Lầu is made with noodles, pork, and local greens, that is found only in Hoian. Its unique taste and texture is achieved by using water from an ancient Cham well. In the last few decades, new restaurants with modern versions have added shrimp or chicken, and additional herbs.
