What you can expect

Start walking around 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, certainly you will watch and taste around 6- 8 particular dishes. Visit Dong Xuan market to sample some local treats such as Banh Xeo (Crispy pancake) and Banh Goi (Pillow Dumpling). I will explain the routine of Vietnam meal times and indigenous/unusual ingredients eaten. See dried goods and aromatics, the essentials of Vietnamese cuisine. Stroll up 'food alley' to see other dishes on offer. You will dip your fingers and wash your senses in the extraordinary Vietnam cuisine and experience Vietnam tradition through food. This street food tour will give you an unique experience to try the foods of the local Hanoi people, we ensure the food is handled hygienically and provide a comfortable venue for the tastings. The benefit also goes back to the vendors or restaurants/ families as we buy directly from them.
