Tour description


This is not just an ordinary tour, it's special in that it also contains interesting stories about the foods you will try, we will also take you on a food tour from north to south and from south to north, from Vietnamese appetizers, main dishes and desserts, you will understand more about the culture of Hanoians in particular and Vietnamese people in general, if you are looking for a food tour that looks as luxurious as eating in a 5-star hotel, then it is probably not suitable for you. And not only food tour, but we also take you to discover hidden alleys of Hanoi at night, interesting with tiny house, and i bet you have not heard the sentence, Hanoi is probably the most beautiful at night.

Discovering Hanoi’s Old Quarter street foods can be a leap of faith without a guide to steer you to the must-eats and prevent you getting lost. With this small-group tour, you’ll visit tried-and-trusted food spots to sample classics, such as Steam rice pancake, Grilled oysters ,Mix noodle salad ,crispy pancake, fried spring roll, egg coffee and more, all with a guide to describe each dish and help you navigate. 

When in Hanoi, exploring the city's street food scene is a must-do activity. Here are some of the most delicious dishes to try:


  1. Considered a food paradise, Vietnam has lots of mouth-watering specialties to offer to tourists, and banh cuon (Vietnamese steamed rice ) is one of them. It is often served as a dish for breakfast. Make sure that you don’t miss this dish during your Vietnam travel or you will definitely regret it.

  2. Bun Cha Hanoi
    Bún chả
    (Vietnamese: [ɓǔn ca᷉ː]) is a Vietnamese dish of grilled pork and noodles, which is thought to have originated from Hanoi, Vietnam. Bún chả is served with grilled fatty pork (chả) over a plate of white rice noodles (bún) and herbs with a side dish of dipping sauce. The dish was described in 1959 by Vietnamese food writer Vu Bang (1913–1984), who described Hanoi as a town  

  3. Grilled rice paper is called Vietnamese pizza because this dish is prepared and looks quite similar to a pizza.

  4. Mix Noodle Salad (Bun bo tron Nam Bo): Bun bo nam bo is a traditional Vietnamese dish. The name holds a key to its basic ingredients and the location – bun means noodle, bo is for beef, and nam bo refers to the South of the country

  5. Nha Trang Grill Pork Sticks Recipe (Nem Nướng Nha Trang)
    which is an amazing dish in beautiful beach city. Beside grilled pork sticks, one important thing to create its flavor is sauce. Serving with vegetables and this sauce will bring you a spectacular feeling which you ever feel before.


  6. Desserts: Cool down with some traditional Vietnamese sweets like Che, a sweet and creamy dessert soup made with coconut milk, beans, and fruits, or Vietnamese Egg Coffee, a rich and frothy coffee topped with whipped egg yolk and condensed milk.


7. Hanoi Train Street 


Hanoi's street food scene is a must-try for anyone visiting the city. Make sure to explore the small alleyways and hidden street stalls to find the best dishes, and don't be afraid to try something new!

Thanks Vi for delicious tour. Vi is friendly and enthusiastic guide with a lot of jokes. She showed us a lot of places where we could taste local cuisine and at the end nice train street with passing through train. Absolutely recommended. It was nice that we were just small group. Vi was trying to teach us some Vietnamese words but it is not definitely easy language. Vi paid for everything so you do not have to care during the tour. Just paid for it at the end with the tip :)
