Private street food tour


The food available in Hanoi's narrow alleys and tree-lined boulevards is just as much a part of the city as its lakes and old world architecture. In fact, all of these elements combine with the indomitable spirit of the Vietnamese people to produce a lively culinary scene that is both diverse and confronting.

It is very difficult to find some local food stalls and mini restaurants on your own in hidden alleys and sidewalks, certainly the best way to make it easy is joining with Tour Guide Hanoi, taking part in this special tour to learn about Vietnamese cuisine, culture, people and language.

Itinerary

Start walking around 4 km in old quarter "36 streets" to visit some famous and specialized- food families or stalls/ local restaurants, shops where they run their business every day. Visit Dong Xuan market to sample some local treats Banh Goi (Pillow Dumpling). Your guide will explain the routine of Vietnam meal times and indigenous/unusual ingredients eaten. You will dip your fingers and wash your senses in the extraordinary Vietnam cuisine and experience Vietnam tradition through food. Try out the famous Vietnamese Banh Mi sandwich and go to one of the best Pho Bo (Rice noodle soup with beef) in Hanoi to eat like local. If you are not full you could go to a tiny restaurant to try specialty Banh Cuon (Steamed Rolled Rice pancake).
The benefit also goes back to the vendors or restaurants/ families as we buy directly from them. Enjoy the special egg coffee at one of the traditional family run coffee shop at the end of the tour.
