If Hội An Eats hadn’t been introduced to Mr Son’s by some friends we may have never found this charming little eatery, as it’s located in the centre of Hội An. Due to the Ancient Town being notoriously overpriced we rarely stop to check out a menu whilst pottering around, let alone to eat. Imagining I could have missed out on the bún thịt nướng at Mr Son’s doesn’t bare thinking about!
Mr Son’s is situated in a small, self-proclaimed food court at the end of the main riverside strip in the centre of Hội An. The food court provides more of a street food feel than nearby restaurants with it’s rows of wooden tables and benches. It’s remarkable how many dishes are on Mr Son’s menu, considering the the kitchen is barely more than a stove and a fridge. Dishes include the Vietnamese specialty bánh xèo (savory pancakes filled with shrimp, pork, beansprouts and fresh herbs) and nothing costs more than a few dollars.
Read Caitlin’s full review of Mr Son’s addictive dishes like the pictured bánh xèo and bún thịt nướng on Hội An Eats.
