Our guide will come and pick you up at your hotel or at the meeting point according to the arranged time.
We will walk around Hanoi Old Quarter to discover all the street food here. We eat as we go. We’ll try each of the specialties listed below.
Savoring the utter spiciness of chili, the spicy-sweet of dried beef, the crispiness of julienned green papaya, the pungent flavor of herbs and the nutty taste of roasted peanut, you are bound to comprehend how far-reaching its coverage is.
The most important ingredient, certainly, is dried beef. It is cut into big thin slices, soaked with seasoning including salt, sugar, garlic, oil, ginger, chili for about one night, then dried off by putting it into the oven. Green papaya and carrot are pickled, sliced into julienned strips and drained off, then blended with coarsely chopped herbs.
Then we stop to eat Bun Cha - voted as top 10 greatest street food in Hanoi. President Obama also ate this special dish when he visited Vietnam.
Bun Cha is a harmonious match among grill pork, noodles and Vietnamese sauce and it is often eaten with vegetables and herbs. To most Vietnamese locals, bun cha is obviously a perfect choice for every daily meal.
After trying the delicious Bun Cha, we’ll keep on walking to discover the streets and you’ll hear the tour guide introduce about the food culture of Hanoi. Then, we’ll stop by to try Pho – a cannot miss food while you’re in Vietnam.
The steaming hot broth made from meat bones simmered for hours is severed with rice noodles (banh pho) and slices of tender juicy beef or chicken. A perfect bowl of Pho would be some green onions and herbs on top with 2-3 lime drops for a taste of harmony.
The next dish is Banh Cuon. Thin steamed rice flour pancakes filled with minced pork and cloud ear mushrooms are served with "nuoc cham", a fish-sauce-based dipping sauce, fried shallots and fresh herbs. What interesting is that you may have a chance to observe how Banh Cuon is cooked while tasting it.
While eating, Banh Cuon our guide will tell you the story and some facts about the food itself and the food culture of Hanoi.
Then, we stop by a street food vendor to order the famous Vietnam’s sandwiches - Banh Mi. Banh Mi is found everywhere on the streets of Hanoi and worldwide-famous.
There’re many kinds of Banh Mi for you to choose, from beef banh mi, pork banh mi to chicken banh mi and so on. Inside the Banh Mi, they add ingredients such as herbs, carrots, cucumber,... with special sauces to harmonize the overall taste. Once you taste the Banh Mi, you will never forget it.
We’ll end with a drink which is a very famous drink of all time in Hanoi - the Egg Coffee. Egg Coffee is served with both hot or cold version depends on your choice.
The former is served as a a yellow concoction in a small glass. It's consumed with a spoon and tastes almost like a coffee flavored ice cream.
However, it has a proper way to drink the egg coffee so that you can taste it most deliciously. Our tour guide will teach you that.
After the egg coffee, guide will drop you off at your hotel or you can continue your journey by your own.
