Vietnamese Countryside Tour & Vietnamese Meal at Tra Que Herb Village Water Wheel Hoi An, Vietnam


Today we are biking out to Tra Que which is
a little village. We’re going for a special organic meal at a restaurant that grows its
own vegetables and herbs. Oh, wow! Can you hear the sound of the water. This is Sam on the Waterwheel. You’re a natural.
If this isn’t fun I don’t know what is. You should move out here and take up farming. So this place is amazing. It’s like a little
organic oasis where they just grow different herbs and vegetables. Everyone is farming
and it is so peaceful and quiet and it is beautiful. Look at all of the flowers around
this. We have a very special drink here. It is called
the water wheel drink. It’s made with lemon basil seed and ginger. Let’s take a sip
of that. It tastes very healthy. In a good
way or a bad way? In a pretty good way. Okay. Tra Que is a small farming community village
located two kilometers northeast of the Ancient Hoi An town area. We just came here for dinner but if you decide
to visit this village you can also work with the farmers for the day, you can take a rice
paper making class or you can take a cooking class. If you’ve been following along with our recent
food videos you probably have noticed we’ve been having these pancakes a lot and they
are delicious. I have to say that the presentation of these ones down here looks the best. So these here are the best country pancakes
we’ve had. What I really like about them is that they are not as oily or greasy as the
other ones. They have a little bit of a fluffier texture. So this lovely presented dish is called three
friends and there are three friends right in my hand. We have shrimp, pork and vegetables
wrapped around. Pop that in your mouth. Friendly? I’ve got some good pals in my mouth. These tres amigos are almost too pretty to
eat. Thank you. Easy. So here we have our colorful papaya salad
and I didn’t realize it was going to be this big. I started to think we ordered way too
much food. Are you kidding me? With me here? Too much food? I’ll take care of that. Well to sum up this meal I can honestly say
this is the best dinner I’ve had since I’ve been in Vietnam. I absolutely loved the dishes.
You could just taste the freshness in every single dish we had. The prices were really
affordable. The portions were generous and it was cooked really healthy. Nothing was
greasy or too oily. It was just absolute delight to come here and eat. I definitely agree. I think the long bike
ride out here was definitely worth it and it is nice eating in such a quiet and peaceful
setting just being surrounded by the farm. So we highly recommend it if you’re in Hoi
An.

    These were really nice and fluffy. Every restaurant seems to make them a little different, but I must say, I really enjoyed these. 🙂

    That's so cool that you also ate there! Wasn't the food amazing?! Unfortunately we didn't have time for Danang this time around. We covered 7 different places in Vietnam this month and even that felt a bit rushed.

    Thanks Tim! It's actually not too crazy of a bike ride out there. If this was near Saigon or Hanoi it would have been another story though 😉

    I've been to most countries in SE Asia (aside from the Philippines and Myanmar) whereas Audrey has been to Vietnam, Malaysia, Thailand and Cambodia. I think my favorites are Thai, Malaysian and Vietnamese.

    Most Asian Food is Organic. They can't afford fertilizer.
