Chao suon (or spare rib porridge in English) is made of two main ingredients: carefully cooked white rice and spare ribs. First of all, the cook will stew the ribs for many hours so the broth will be sweet enough. Then they put the white rice in the broth and cook it until it turns out to be porridge. A perfect bowl of ‘chao suon’ is the combination between the sweetness of the broth and the tenderness of the pork and porridge.

One of the famous coffee of Hanoian is the Egg Coffee. This drink concoction was first created by a bartender in 1940s in Hanoi. Instead of milk, he used egg with the coffee. The result was a tasty Egg Coffee that is famous until now in Giang Café.
