Why you shoud take a Hanoi Food Tours?

Vietnamese Food has gained popularity in the world in recent years because of its diversity, delicacy and healthy gastronomies. Almost all dishes use the same main ingredients such as rice, its derivatives, fish sauce, herbs and vegetables. What’s interesting is that all the ingredients are common and thanks to the tropical climate, they are easily found in Vietnam. Especially, you’ll be surprised by the amount of fruits and vegetables consumed daily in the country. In fact, when you order a dish in Vietnam, you are most likely to be served a plate of fresh herbs before anything else.

Vietnam is divided into 3 parts and each part of the country has its own distinct food culture. In the north of Vietnam, The Red River Delta civilization from a long time ago has brought a long-established food culture. What makes the food here different from other areas is that the dishes don’t usually focus too much on a distinctive spice or flavor. You can see that the methods of making a dish haven’t been changed a lot since the old days as the Northern people truly cherish their traditions and follow their ancestors. So that the recipes are kept and pass from generations to generations.

Chao Suon 

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.

Before eating chao suon, you have to put in pepper and ginger or it’d not have a perfect taste. Herbs and ‘quay’ are also indispensable ingredients. Quay is usually cut into pieces into the bowl and dipped into the porridge.

Egg Coffee

Hanoian is crazy for their coffee. You can see café shops are all over the city and anywhere you go. However, only in the center of Hanoi can you find the original and authentic café of Hanoi. 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.

Rich, smooth, sweet and creamy are the adjectives people use to describe egg coffee

The egg coffee is sweet and frothy with no hint of eggs. Under a layer of eggs is a familiar espresso. The cup comes in a small bowl filled with warm water to maintain the coffee’s temperature.
When drinking, don’t slurp down all the cloud-like egg concoction first. The combination of the egg and the coffee is really what makes it work so that drink it slowly or mix it together and then drink.

    Best and maybe only fair mechanic in whole Vietnam

    I first met James one year ago after driving from Saigon to Hanoi with a very bad bike which I bought from a random mechanic in who seemed very friendly and trustfull to me.
    James fixed it until it was in a sellable condition and told me how much is still a fair price without ripping the customer off. He then sold me a better bike which I had for a few weeks and never had any problems with it. Then i lived in Hanoi for 3 months.During this time he helped me selling the one he sold me (reason for selling it was that I didn’t want a manual bike anymore because it’s very exhausting to use in city traffic in Hanoi) and then sold me a wonderfull semiautomatic which I owned (and loved) for 6 months without having a single problem through the whole time. During the time I lived in Hanoi I recommended James shop to numerous backpackers who all bought bikes from him and all of them were superhappy and didn’t have any problems with their bikes. When I stopped working in Hanoi he again helped me to sell this bike for the price it was worth and then rented me one of his new Lifan 150ccm bikes to travel northern Vietnam for another 3 weeks. The bike carried me and a friend including our luggage and took us up every mountain we wanted with more than 5 km/h and again we never had a single problem with it.
    Now I travelled northern Vietnam again for a while with 6 other people so we rented 4 bikes from James which were all perfect and as well didn’t cause us any kind of problems. Whenever I needed support outside Hanoi in the last year I called James and he would give his best to help me out as a translator, navigator or help to make sure mechanics don’t rip us off when doing oil changes and similar stuff.

    So if you want to ride safe and have fun without loads of breakdowns then definitely hit up James shop in Hanoi, you wont regret it!
