Although this is just a bowl of rice noodle, it is said that no trip to Hoi An is complete without enjoying Cao Lau. The dish is made with pork, noodles, and a lot of vegetables and herbs, which wonderfully enhance its unique flavor. Believe it or not, the chefs must take water from an ancient well, namely Ba Le, to make the broth. So, enjoying this dish is definitely worth a try.
