Concierge.com's insider take:
Trinh Diem Vy has been feeding backpackers since opening Mermaid Restaurant near Hoi An's central market in 1991, the Mesozoic era of Vietnamese tourism. Cargo Club, her third restaurant, serves travelers who are homesick for pizza, pasta, or baguette sandwiches. But her light, local fare, such as spring rolls stuffed with grilled pork, green banana, Asian basil, and star fruit, is better. The location in a breezy riverside shophouse makes this a good luncheon call, especially when a slice of passion fruit cheesecake arrives for dessert.
Open daily 8 am to 11 pm.
