Morning Glory Signature Restaurant

Refined and Contemporary Vietnamese Dining

It has long been my dream to open Morning Glory Signature. Having worked for over 30 years in various kitchens – first my parents’ and later in my own restaurants, I have acquired a great passion for cooking and the wonderful ingredients that we are so lucky to have here in Hoi An. However, as so many other projects got in the way, it is only recently that I found the time to create this new venture. For me, the Morning Glory Signature menu is a thank you to all the teachers, guests, suppliers and others who have given me the inspiration and encouragement to push forward and strive to find more outlets for my passion.

This is a deeply personal selection of dishes using only the highest quality native ingredients. Each dish has a story behind it and all have a special place in my heart. Some are new or reimagined versions of more traditional dishes, but all carefully maintain the essence of what Vietnamese cuisine means to me – a glorious blending of flavours, aromas and textures. It goes beyond feeding the body – it is as much about recharging my spirit. The eating experience itself is also important here – the anticipation of the meal to come, the ambience, and the accompanying conversation over a shared meal etc.

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.
