Full description

Take a walk through Hanoi's old quarter on a tour with a local guide. Learn about the traditions of Vietnam’s food culture while tasting local specialties like Vietnamese sandwiches, traditional desserts, and the iconic egg coffee. First, stop at a local restaurant to try a combination of spring rolls, Pho rolls, pillow cake, shrimp cake, sweet donuts, or deep-fried fermented pork, served with a dish of raw vegetables and fish sauce.

Next, continue the walk to try Vietnam's signature dish known as pho, a soup consisting of broth, noodles, herbs, and meat. Taste test a specialty pho mixed with a special sauce. The soup can definitely bring you a whole new outlook on taste. Visit a restaurant to taste bánh mi (Vietnamese sandwich) with its signature pate filling. And you can’t miss out on the traditional dessert chè (any variety of sweet beverages or pudding), which can vary depending on the season.

Last but not least, try the infamous egg coffee. This is a must-try when you come to Vietnam. Finish your tour having discovered the taste of about five different dishes of Vietnam.

Sarah was very friendly and told us a lot about her culture and the city. She took us to several streetfood spots. Although all the food was delicious, we'd have liked more surprising dishes that tourists normally wouldn't try. We're vegetarians and except for one dish, they could offer us alternatives.

Our guide was Rosie who was extremely nice, answered all the additional questions, took longer time with us as a group! Also all the places to eat were great. As a tourist alone, you would be able to navigate and explore that well. It is perfect for the first days in Hanoi.

Had an amazing experience doing the street food walking with the guide Mia. She was very thorough with telling, explaining and guiding us to the streets. We went on this trip on Christmas Day and she helped us to find a nice restaurant to celebrate Christmas in the evening. Very nice food. Now we are so much more prepared and understanding about that Vietnamese food and culture is. Thank you so much Mia
