Stop At: Old Quarter

We eat as we go, trying seasonal fruits and sampling a tasty local doughnut where you have chance to learn the process how the local family make doughnut including sweet and savory ones. Our next two snack stops on our Hanoi street food tour are at food stalls of Bun Dau Met/Bun Cha. We sit down with the Hanoi locals and sample a real experience of local eating “mam tom” – shrimp paste. We can have “nuoc mam” – fish source instead.  Next street is Lo Ren which like many others in Hanoi’s old quarter and its name also represents the trade craft of iron, from here we will stop for sampling Banh Mi, a tasty Vietnamese baguette  with many different choices   Walking through the maze of bustling streets that make up Hanoi’s Old Quarter, we tempt our tastebuds with the famed Hanoi dish banh cuon at a local eatery. Watch in awe as the skilled chefs demonstrate for you how this tasty dish is put together. Continuing into the atmospheric heart of the Old Quarter, we wander past street stalls and quiet residential lanes where you can observe local life that has changed little since Hanoi was founded over 1,000 years ago.  Now, it's time for a cup of Bia Hoi while we sit down and mingle with locals. This specialty is one not to be missed. 

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Hoan Kiem Lake Walking Street

Your local guide will then take you to one of Hanoi’s best kept secrets, a hidden café with stunning views over the picturesque Hoan Kiem Lake. This hard-to-find café is one of the few left in the city that still serves egg coffee, a scrumptious local delicacy that we will sample whilst admiring the hustle and bustle of the city centre below. Or, if coffee is not your style, a cold beer awaits!
