Tour description

The Hanoi food tour is not only just tasting the specialties of Vietnamese cuisine but also learning about our culture, lifestyle, history, and interesting stories.

I love my country and my capital city a lot and I want to show you around to let you know how good our food is, to hear you say "Wow" when you try the food, to watch you suddenly pick up your camera and take photos of our daily life activities, which is unique and you don't have in your country and to answer you any questions about the ingredients of the food you ate, how to cook it, about what we eat every day to be so skinny, or further about our history, our economy and so on.

Here is the list of food options you can choose and even more flexible up to your preferences (Vegetarian is available)

  1. Pho: one of the most famous dishes - rice noodles with beef or chicken and special broth 
  2. Banh mi: our Vietnamese sandwich style which is being worldwide well known 
  3. Bun cha: the signature food of Hanoi - grilled pork with rice noodles and a special sauce 
  4. Cha ca: grilled fish with dill and special sauce
  5. Banh xeo: the crispy pancake with rice roll paper and herbs
  6. Egg coffee: the signature coffee of Hanoi
  7. Mixed fruits with milk
  8. Bia hoi: Hanoi draught beer

If you want to walk with a Vietnamese friend showing you his beloved hometown, join me, enjoy your time here, and make yourself at home!

Please note:

The food is not included and has a cost of approx 6 to 8 € per person.

Absolutely loved this tour! Stops: Nhat brought us to 4 different places starting with a sweet or savoury (your choice) pastry, onto a savoury crisp pancake, then for Ban Mi which was delicious and finally some much awaited pho. All the places were honestly incredible. It was just two of us on this tour which actually made it better for us as it meant we kind of had freedom to eat or not eat certain things and adjust as we went. I really wanted pho and Nhat made this a priority even though initially it was an option between this or the Ban Mi but he made it an ‘and’ rather than an ‘or’. It’s definitely a slower pace too which means you aren’t rushing and tearing between places and the information Nhat was giving us was so easy to digest. I really enjoyed it and would do it again. Value: Overall we spent 250,000 dong on the food which for us was completely worthwhile - both delicious and full afterwards. Great value. .

A fun walk through the streets of the old quarter. Nhat customized the tour to our dietary restrictions and brought us to several delicious places we wouldn't have easily found on our own. We also gained some insight into life in Hanoi, as he was very open about sharing his opinions, thoughts and details about his life. Thanks for the tour, Nhat.

Nhat is really easy-going and really kind. We spoke a lot about many different things, his country, his culture and food. He brought me to amazing places where I could try tasty food with locals and He was really open to let me decide what I wanted to try. Highly recommend.
