Hanoi is the birthplace of many quintessential Vietnamese dishes, and the city is often cited as one of the world’s great food capitals. It is also a street food lover’s paradise, with a plethora of options for those who want to eat like a local. However, while dining on the street sounds tempting and adventurous, it can be intimidating. Let your expert guide introduce you to Hanoi’s most savory delicacies as you visit the street carts and market stalls of the Old Quarter.
Duration: 4 hours (daily departure at 9:30 AM and 5:00 PM).
You will be picked up from your hotel for a Hanoi street food tour and head out into the streets of Hanoi on a sightseeing and food-themed half-day guided tour. Visit the local market to get an overview of Vietnamese food, and spend time talking with street food vendors and stall holders while you sample their authentic culinary offerings.
Then you will enjoy a Vietnamese coffee (Cà Phê) or tea (Trà) with the locals at Cafe Thọ, one of the many sidewalk cafes in the historic French Quarter. Our guide will give you an overview of the Vietnamese food scene, particularly in Hanoi. Continue to Truc Bach lake for a snack of Phở Cuốn, a grilled beef and rice noodle roll with fresh herbs, along with several other local snacks.
Lunch/ Dinner at one of Hanoi’s best Bun Cha establishments. Situated down a narrow lane, you will sit on tiny stools at low plastic tables along with the regular crowd of Bun Cha aficionados and enjoy traditional grilled pork and rice vermicelli noodles with fresh herbs and greens like true Hanoians. Very few foreigners ever find this eatery so it is a very special treat.
