Respond to Review of Karma Waters - Hoi An
Review: We've been travelling in SE Asia for a while now. Even some of the better meals we've had in Vietnam have been a bit lacking in flavor. Karma waters awakened our taste buds! We had a lotus salad (lots of different flavors, delicious!), central asian noodles (subtle flavor, but very good) and shredded tofu salad, which said it was with mint, but it was with another green (also very yummy and filling!). We also tried the pumpkin pancakes, which were pretty plain, but came with a delicious sweet ginger dipping sauce and we tried the ice cream, which was awesome, like a frosty coconut rice pudding. The owners were wonderful and very interesting, super passionate about their veganism and sharing it with their community. They have vegan, sustainable tourism, too, and have projects to teach a local community how to create a sustainable livelihood that is not based on fishing, their traditional income. (But the fish are nearly all gone now...) Owners are even trying to create a weekly day of free vegan for anyone who wants to try it, to encourage this lifestyle, and give free (donations accepted) cooking classes. I would definitely recommend this place. There seem to be two locations, one one the water near the beach, and one closer to the old town of Hoi An. I biked to both quite easily, but only ate at the one close to Hoi An town.
