Authentic Hoi An Street Food
Specialities and family recipes
The Morning Glory Cooking School and Restaurant opened its doors in 2006. As Ms Vy’s third hospitality establishment, Morning Glory restaurant was the cumulative result of Ms Vy’s passion and vision to create a venue where visitors could not only enjoy a gourmet Vietnamese dining experience, but could also see local Hoi An food specialities made first-hand in the open kitchen. Located just across the street from Cargo Club on Nguyen Thai Hoc Street, Morning Glory has become the ‘not-to-be-missed’ dining experience for most visitors to Hoi An.
The restaurant and cooking school takes its name from the morning glory vegetable which, after rice, is the most commonly eaten food in Vietnam. One of the more appealing aspects of this edible plant is its resilience. It can grow in any kind of climate and from soil, mud or waterways. Its durable and flexible nature makes it symbolic in the eyes of Ms Vy, who views it as a representation of the Vietnamese character. It can survive, even thrive, in the harshest of conditions; growing into a beautiful green vegetable with a white star flower.
