The U.S. speaker once said that the “kitchen of the world” could be a suitable image for Vietnam. Vietnamese cuisine doesn't win any points for complexity. Many of the most popular dishes can be made just on the side of the road. But it's precisely this simplicity, the subtle variations by region and the fresh ingredients, that keep us pulling up a plastic stool for more. The street food tour is a perfect way to explore more traditional Vietnamese cuisine around Hanoi.
Pick you up from the hotel then we visit Dong Xuan market and start our street food tour in Ta Hien – Luong Ngoc Quyen – Hang Giay – Dao Duy Tu streets, where shows many kinds of local and traditional dishes. Here, you will have a chance to try two dishes in the following foods:
Bun Cha (a type of noodle soup with pork BBQ). All of the preparation and content are explained by the guide. The guide also tells the daily life of the common Vietnamese, experiencing something that the Vietnamese used a lot in cooking, dried foods, spices and fresh herbs.
Banh Cuon These rolled up rice flour pancakes are best when served piping hot, still soft and delicate. Although seemingly slender and empty they have a savory filling of minced pork and mushrooms. This is one of the most famous dishes in Ha Noi and has been along with Hanoian for years.
Pho Cuon - Pho cuon packages the flavors of pho and goi cuon in one neat little parcel. This Hanoi take on fresh spring rolls uses sheets of uncut pho noodles to encase fried beef, herbs and lettuce or cucumber.
Xoi (Sticky rice) - Savory sticky rice is less of an accompaniment to meals in Vietnam, more a meal itself. The glutinous staple comes with any number of mix-ins (from slithers of chicken, or pork to fried or preserved eggs).
Cha Ca - Hanoians consider cha ca to be so exceptional that there is a street in the capital dedicated to these fried morsels of fish. This namesake alley is home to Cha Ca La Vong, which serves sizzling chunks of fish seasoned with garlic, ginger, turmeric and dill on a hot pan tableside.
The tour ends with a bowl of Che (Best had when you're craving something sweet on a hot day in Hanoi) or Egg Coffee at 39 Nguyen Huu Huan street. If you wanna have a grasp of how young Vietnamese people have fun, we can stop at Ta Hien street to have a glass of our local beer.
