TMG – One of the best things about Hoi An’s amazing history and diverse culture is its unique dishes. And something not to be missed when traveling to Hoi An is the croissants from L’Annam Restaurant.
The story of the croissant
Croissants are closely associated with French cuisine and over the years, the hot, fragrant, buttery croissants from L’Annam Restaurant have left a deep impression on many domestic and foreign visitors who have had the opportunity to set foot in the beautiful, Indochina-inspired Victoria Hoi An Beach Resort & Spa.
More than a quick and delicious breakfast item, every croissant from L’Annam at Victoria Hoi An also offers visitors from inside and outside Vietnam, from adults to children, from Asian to European guests, a sample of the unique combination of typical French and traditional Vietnamese flavors often found in this UNESCO-listed heritage city.
The croissant has a long and well-traveled history. Originally called “kipferl” in Austria (meaning “crescent moon”), the pastry was then known as a “croissant” (also “crescent moon”) when it arrived in France in the 18th century, thanks to a royal European love affair. When the croissant came to Vietnam, it was locally dubbed “buffalo horn pastry” after its peculiar shape, showing how closely life here is tied to agriculture.
The secret to scrumptious croissants
The croissants from Victoria Hoi An’s L’Annam Restaurant don’t just tempt guests from West to East, they also are a source of culinary inspiration. From the delicious, slightly sweet taste of the inside pastry to the flaky, buttery crust, each bite of a piping hot croissant lovingly kneaded by the hands of L’Annam chefs is a contribution to the treasure trove of Vietnamese cuisine.
To make scrumptious croissants, L’Annam’s talented chefs start by selecting the highest quality ingredients. Fine flour and fresh butter are combined to make a dough that results in the flaky crust and soft insides characteristic of a great croissant. The process of rolling, folding, and baking until the pastry is golden brown requires great concentration and patience.
Another must-have ingredient to create a great croissant-eating experience at L’Annam is the smiles from the restaurant staff. More than an enthusiastic welcome, the smiles and warm hospitality that have become a trademark of Victoria Hoi An are also a part of the croissant experience and really, the general dining experience at L’Annam, ensuring guests at L’Annam and Victoria Hoi An leave happy.
Modeled after a coastal fishing village, the Indochina-inspired design of Victoria Hoi An also contributes towards the enjoyment of delicious croissants at the resort. Guests having breakfast at L’Annam can choose to sit outside by the lovely plumeria trees, overlooking the infinity pool and Cua Dai Beach. For a more intimate dining experience, select an indoor table surrounded by classic Vietnamese décor, enhanced by an impressive skylight and indoor greenery.
At L’Annam Restaurant, guests are always close to nature, turning every meal at Victoria Hoi An Beach Resort & Spa into an ultimately memorable one.
