1. Bun Cha (Rice Noodle with Grilled Pork)

Wanna try the food that the Former President of US – Barack Obama tasted during his visit in Hanoi? Bun Cha is what I’m talking about!

Bun cha is served with grilled fatty pork over a plate of white rice noodle and herbs with a dish of dipping sauce.

2. Banh Mi (Vietnamese Sandwiches)

Do you know Banh Mi is a Vietnamese word that was officially appeared in the English Dictionary of Oxford in 2011 and the American Heritage Dictionary in 2014?

Yes, going on a Street Food Tour with us means you will be taken to the best place to crave for this food.

3. Banh Xeo (Vietnamese Pancako)

This interesting food was named after its “sizzle” cooking sound.

It is an essential must-try in the world of Vietnamese cuisine. The dish actually varies depending on your location in Vietnam, which gives you an unarguable excuse to try it more than once.

Its harmony taste will make you never get enough of it!

4. Egg Coffee 

Coffee made from Egg? No way!

This seems the most curious drink that makes tourists as well as locals want to try. The beverage is made from egg yolk, Vietnamese coffee powder, condensed milk and cheese. These ingredients may sound weird for a coffee related beverage but don’t worry, it doesn’t taste sickly or eggy but brings the taste of surprisingly light and sweet vanilla.

5. Bun Rieu Cua (Crab Noodle Soup)

It’s quite a Vietnamese version of crab cakes but in soup! Some cooks like crab mixture more appeared, almost like a patty. Fresh herbs are added to the soup such as split water spinach stems, shredded banana flower, kinh gioi (marjoram), spearmint, perilla, bean sprouts and Cha Chay (vegetarian sausage).

6. Nem (Spring Roll)

Do you want to try Nem – the food once known as must-have food on Tet Holiday (The traditional occasion based on Lunar Calendar)?

Go with us to try Nem. This is a dish that can be served all year round, and present in almost every menu of Vietnamese restaurant abroad: A dish that is so famous that many locals of Vietnam assume it as their own specialty and give it their own name such as: “Nem Ran” by northerners and “Cha Gio” by southerners.

7. Pho (Noodle Soup)

This must be a food that most tourists seem to have already heard about it before visiting Vietnam.

The steaming hot broth made from meat bones simmered for hours is severed with rice noodles (banh pho) and slices of tender juicy beef or chicken. A perfect bowl of Pho would be some green onions and herbs on top with 2-3 lime drops for a taste of harmony in the morning.

8. Banh Cuon (Stuffed Pancake/Steamed Rolled Rice Pancake)

The food looks so good right? Are you craving for it?

Hanoi Street Food Tour is made to take you to the best place for Banh Cuon.

It is the most suitable dish to soothe the hunger of the cold weather. Banh Cuon are popular dishes are often processed simply but require the ingenuity of the maker.

For years, Banh Cuon has never stop to let diners down. When people need something light, delicate yet flavorful, Banh Cuon is a must-have in a Menu.

9. Xoi (Sticky Rice)

Are you craving for one of  the most popular local food by Hanoians?

It is difficult to have any dish that has more flavor than Xoi. It is fast food, snacks, breakfast; This is an indispensable dish for formal occasions such as offering treats to grandparents, cradles for children, anniversary of death.

@ShiKai010689: Culinary discoveries

We had a wonderful evening with Gia Linh. Although we had tasted lots of different Vietnamese food before, we got to try much new. Our guide fulfilled all our extra wishes and changed her plans whenever we wanted. At the end of our tour we got a little extra and also a suggestion for our evening programm on top. We had lots of fun:)

@Eilidh_28: Delicious food tour

We did the food tour and had an absolutely delicious time! An-an was a brilliant tour guide: she took us to places we would never have gone ourselves and knew what to order in each place. We really loved the Banh mi and the Vietnamese pancake! She was also very friendly and taught us a little of the language! Would definitely recommend!

@KenY: Hanoi Street Food Tour with Huyen

I highly recommend anyone to sign up for the street food tour. Huyen (and I’m sure any of her colleagues) was full of energy and information. She made the tour much more enjoyable. Without her we wouldn’t have had stopped by the stores to eat the local foods. The food was delicious and the information that Huyen provided us was outstanding! I wish we stayed in Hanoi a little longer to book the other services that this company offers. Thank You Huyen for showing us around!

@TrevorC: Hanoi Street Food – YUM! (Thanks Hannah 😋)

On our first night in Hanoi, we booked a Street Food Tour with Hanoi Free Local Tours…and it was AWESOME!!!

The online booking process was very good and smooth.

Our guide, Hannah, showed as at our hotel on time. Hannah is a local Hanoi University student studying marketing. Before we started, she discussed our food preferences / allergies and gave has an ideas of the food we were going to be tasting. We walked all over the Old Quarter experiencing both Hanoi street culture, traffic management skills and amazing food! Hannah was fantastic at explaining everything to us and introducing us to Vietnamese Street Food. We even paid a visit to the Bun Cha restaurant that President Barack Obama visited in 2016! We finished the tour with an amazing coconut coffee from Cong Caphe and an Egg Coffee!

I would definitely recommend Hanoi Free Local Tours to see the sights and taste the food of Hanoi’s amazing Old Quarter!
