Hoi An is the perfect place to eat vegan food. The village in Central Vietnam is known for its colourful yellow buildings, ethnic art museums, lantern festival, beautiful scenery, cycling culture and very friendly people.
There are many options for vegans including Banh Mi, Curry, Iced Coffee, Pizza, Burgers, Pho, Pancakes and lots more!
I visited Hoi An in 2022 and these are my favourite vegan friendly places (check out some great cafes in Ho Chi Minh City, Da Nang, Phong Nha, Sapa and Hanoi too!). There are so many more but here’s a small taste. You won’t have any trouble eating vegan in Hoi An!
