Best Vegetarian and Vegan Restaurant Options in Hoi An

BEST VEGETARIAN AND VEGAN RESTAURANT OPTIONS IN HOI AN

The range of choices in Hoi An is vast and not with only dedicated vegetarian and vegan restaurants. Also the non-vegetarian and vegan joints in Hoi An often have those options on the menu to satisfy the demand from their western traveller clientele. When eating at vegetarian or vegan restaurants in Hoi An, you can generally relax and order what you like. Secure in the knowledge that the people (almost always ex-pats) who run these places really understand your food requirements.

 
Precautions When Ordering Vegetarian and Vegan Food in Hoi An

However, if you are eating at a locally-run establishment, just make sure you explain to the restaurant staff what you mean by vegan or vegetarian. Mostly, the locals understand “Chay eating,” which is the local Buddhist style of plant-based eating. This, however, can contain some animal products, and animal-produced products that you may not want showing up in your vegetarian or vegan meal.

 

Sometimes, fish, shellfish, and fish or chicken broth will be included in Chay meals. So make sure you check with your server before ordering. This is not deliberate trouble-making or willful misunderstanding on behalf of the locals. It’s just that the Southeast Asian versions of plant-based eating are mostly rooted in religious dogma and local traditions, rather than the ethics-based philosophies of western folks.

 

Listed below are some great little places in Hoi An to get either your vegetarian or vegan munching underway.

1. Am Vegetarian Restaurant

Address: 33D Ly Thai To St  – 

Business hours: 10:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. daily

 

Ranked No. 1 on TripAdvisor, Am, which means “warm” in Vietnamese, will give you just that feeling when you walk in. The ambient environment lit with gorgeous lanterns and bohemian decor immediately gives you that warm, fuzzy feeling inside. Am provides a classy and artistic environment that is soothing for the soul. In addition, if you’re lucky enough to meet the owners, they will make you feel immediately at home.

 

The food choices are phenomenal and quite reasonably priced. Some dishes worth mentioning: the ‘Am special spring rolls’ possibly the best-fried spring rolls in town. Their version of Banh Xeo (with a Japanese twist), Pad Thai (not found at many places in Hoi An), and their vegetarian and vegan hot pots spiced to perfection! To satisfy your sweet tooth, they offer homemade ice cream and sorbet options for dessert.

2. Minh Hien Vegetarian Restaurant

Address 1: 50 Tran Cao Van. Address 2: 30A Dinh Tien Hoang.

Address 3: 29 Phan Chu Trinh. 

Business hours: 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. daily

 

This local Vietnamese vegetarian spot stands out for having fabulous food and prices, with some people even claiming it’s the best in Vietnam. A little bit outside of the Old Town, away from the crowds, its patrons are normally a combination of locals, expats, and travellers.

 

The restaurant’s interior is lined with books and has plenty of available seating. The menu itself is rather extensive, and even without any meat dishes, there remain multiple pages of food options. Some of the more notable dishes are the White Rose (Banh Bao Vac) which is a Hoi An speciality dumpling, the Ban Xeo (Vietnamese pancake), and many of the noodle specialities (including a version of Cau Lao, Hoi An’s famous noodle dish).

 

Aside from offering fresh fruit juices and smoothies, they also have an exceptional offer of mugs of beer for 4,000 VND (0.20 USD). They brew this beer in-house, like many Vietnamese households, and offer it nice and cold. Minh Hien now has a second location as well and even offers a vegetarian cooking class that includes visiting organic vegetable farms and how to cook a variety of local dishes. This place indeed offers a fantastic bang for your buck.

3. Karma Waters

Address: 213 Nguyen Duy Hieu 

Business hours: 10:00 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. daily

 

Another family-founded vegetarian and vegan restaurant in Hoi An is Karma Waters. Established in Hoi An in 2005 and serving 100 per cent organic, vegan Vietnamese, Indian, and International food and drink options. They never use MSG or refined sugar and provide a smoke- and alcohol-free environment. The restaurant itself is almost always bustling and only has a few tables, so try to avoid busy meal times or expect a small wait. Karma Waters is also committed to being environmentally sustainable. They do not promote single-use plastic and charge a 10,000 VND (.40 USD) deposit for takeaway containers that are returned to customers after containers are brought back to the restaurant.

 

These guys are the really polished operators in the Hoi An vegan scene. They are not only vegan—they are acutely health-conscious too with housemade juices and smoothies, and sugar-free and gluten-free options galore. There are satisfying roti meals, bean curries, raw salads, soups, burgers and banh mi, noodle dishes, and snack foods. They are not really much more expensive than some of the other vegetarian and places in Hoi An. Juices, smoothies and “green cures” cost around 35,000 to 55,000 VND (1.50 to 2.40 USD), whilst mains and salads’ prices range from 45,000 to 90,000 VND (2 to 4 USD).

4. Nomad Yoga & Cafe

Address: 22 Nguyen Du, Cam Pho 

Business hours: Monday to Saturday, 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

 

Nomad Yoga Hoi An not only offers a multitude of yoga classes but also offers a healthy, vegetarian or vegan breakfast and lunch menu at their cafe. Their menu changes weekly, depending on what is fresh in the market, and is dedicated to offering healthy food options. For breakfast, they are known to offer overnight oatmeal bowls or delicious “Nice Cream” bowls topped with fresh fruit and house-made granola. Lunch offers a daily quiche and salad option, or an all-encompassing Buddha bowl.

 

If you need some organic house-made food items such as peanut butter or sauerkraut, you can buy them by the jar, as well as delicious home-brewed kombucha. Another thing that sets Nomad apart are their DIY Juice Cleanse packages to help cleanse the digestive system and lose weight. They have a variety of juice choices with different prices based on your individual needs. Nomad Yoga makes it so easy to eat healthily! 

5. Annen Vegetarian & Yoga

Address: 471/7 Cua Dai 

Business hours: 9:00 a.m. to  9:00 p.m. daily

 

Another great yoga and cafe option in town is Annen. Their mantra is “Eat Healthy, Live Healthy,” and they live up to it. They offer farm-to-table vegetarian and vegan fare in an outdoor patio setting, set away from the loud, disruptive streets of Hoi An. They even offer a vegetarian Banh Mi, in case you haven’t been able to find a meat-free variation. While sitting, you might enjoy the company of two purring felines that prowl around the dinner tables, eagerly waiting for some rubs or a lap to sit on.

 

In addition to their yoga options, which you may view on their Facebook page, they also support local art and music by holding monthly “starving artist” gallery shows where artists can display and sell their work, and also host open mic nights on Fridays and Saturdays. For large events, Annen offers event catering, event planning services (in their space or your own), and delivery options.

6. Vegan Zone

Address: 197 Nguyen Duy Hieu 

Business hours: 10:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. daily

 

A few houses down from the more established Karma Waters, is one of the newer kids on the block –  Vegan Zone. Vegan Zone has quickly established themselves on Hoi An’s vegan scene and considered to be a ‘home away from home’ for many. This friendly, local, environmentally-conscious restaurant (no plastic straws here!), is furnished with dark wood furniture. Its upcycled decor, such as soup cans used as napkins holders and pots with plants, decorate the windows. The restaurant has a mezzanine making it one and a half floors. Mandalas are painted on the walls, along with lights housed in weaved baskets giving this restaurant a rustic feel.

 

The Menu

The menu is printed on brown paper and bound with twine. The staff tell us that the most popular items are the lemongrass tofu, tempeh roll, vegan curry, and eggplant crepe (55,000 VND / 2.40 USD). We have it on good authority that they also have the best vegan hot pot in town!

 

With every dish beautifully plated, it’s a feast for the eyes as well. The food is tasty and has a very homemade feel to it. Dishes are not heavily seasoned (they’re proudly MSG-free), and condiments are provided to allow you to adjust the taste. We tried the eggplant crepe which was very hearty and warm. The pan-seared mushrooms (85,000 VND / 4 USD) were a delight to look at and devour. For dessert, they offer chocolate banana crepes and fruit bowls. They also serve a variety of smoothies, juices, coffee and tea.
