Food is the way to Hanoi's heart

Eating street food-style is a very social affair; Vietnamese people seemingly don’t like dining solo but prefer the company of others.  The street food industry is part of the national culture and a street food tour is one of the best ways to get to know Vietnam.  Hanoi is considered one of South East Asia’s street food capitals. The best way to dine is perched on a small stool amongst the hustle and bustle of the city.
 
 
 
 
Meet your guide and begin the journey with a walking tour of the old quarter’s ’36 streets’.  The area is over 1,000 years old and despite centuries of change, its special charm is preserved.  Sample some of Hanoi and Vietnam’s iconic dishes from hundreds of food stalls from Pho Bo or Pho Ga (beef or chicken noodle soup), Bun Cha to Banh Cuon and Bun Rieu Cua. Rub shoulders with the locals as you perch on low street side stools sipping Hanoi’s legendary egg coffee or ca phe sua da (Vietnamese iced coffee). Our guide will lead you down hidden alleys to discover equally hidden food stalls and local restaurants and will explain about the history of the dishes you will sample as well as some of Hanoi’s heritage.
