What you can expect

Hidden to the tourist's eyes, in Hanoi, there is a wide array of dishes that are, let's call them, unique. These are the kind of dishes that when I was a little kid, I would close my eyes when I had to eat them.

Allow me to take you on a food tour of Hanoi's weirdest dishes. Taste the hidden flavor of the city on this exciting experience for those brave enough.

Try a fertilized egg that has a half-formed little bird inside. The egg is hard-boiled and served with a variety of leaves and herbs. And it could be either duck or quail. These hidden gems are just in front of your eyes but without the local insights, you wouldn't be able to find them or know about them.

Another eccentric delicacy you'll try is "Ga Tan". This dish consists of a small chicken cooked in an old soda can. You'll see the odd sight of trays of Coca-Cola cans slowly steaming over a small charcoal fire on the street, with little chicken feet sticking out of the top.

Or how about some worms? Enjoy a sandworm omelet or ragworm cakes that are fried fresh with a mix of worms, dill, spices and mandarin peel and to give it that extra touch, the whole worms are very visible in the finished pancake.

I want you to have a memorable experience in Hanoi. It's not just about food but also the street life here, the way the street vendors sell the food. There are thousands of dishes to try but you will remember all the weird and strange things that make you afraid and you might need to be brave to try.

We'll walk through the Old Quarter where you'll find a Snails Shop. You should by now know that yes, you'll eat snails. Enjoy boiled Snails and Fertilised Quail Eggs here.

Drinks also have that special something in Hanoi. You'll get to taste the egg beer and egg coffee in a fa traditional coffee shop. And for dinner, enjoy some pig's brain!

I can add some regular dishes in there, to balance the food experience. Just send me a message and I can personalize this crazy experience for you.

I was born in Hanoi. My hometown is dynamic and busy. But I can show you lots of quiet and peaceful places like some secret bookstores and local coffee shops. Hope that we'll have great time together!"
