Join this Hanoi tour to source the best street eats from markets, food carts, cafes and other locals-approved spots. We all know the best way to explore a new place is through its food!
Your tour will start at a hidden coffee shop with a welcome drink and the chance to fill up your reusable water bottle. Walking into this cafe you will see plastic bottles, turned into flowers and dragonflies, hanging from the ceiling. Stroll through hidden alleyways and visit the city’s local market, Hang Be. Your local guide will give you an insight into the peculiarities and traditions of Vietnamese food culture while you try out seasonal fruits and a tasty local doughnut. The next stop is a food stall selling bun dau met (noodles with fried tofu and shrimp paste) or bun cha (a grilled pork and noodle dish). You'll also have a chance to sample mam tom (shrimp paste) or nuoc mam (fish sauce). Next, you will head over to Lo Ren street where we will stop for some banh mi, a tasty Vietnamese baguette sandwich with many different choices of fillings. No foodie tour would be complete without the famed Hanoi dish Banh Cuon. Watch skilled chefs demonstrate for you how this tasty dish is put together. Continuing on, you'll stop for a cup of Bia hoi (light Vietnamese draft beer). Last but not least, your local guide will take you to one of Hanoi’s best-kept secrets, a hidden café with stunning views over the picturesque Hoan Kiem Lake that still serves egg coffee. If coffee is not your style, a cold beer might do the trick!
