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.

The guide Austin was very personal, helpful, also, although it was a food tour he showed us some interesting land marks while walking from food outlet to the next one.

What a fun and informative food tour. I enjoyed the hidden and local eateries our Guide Dan took us on for the day. I enjoyed that it was filled with historical long standing shops. It gave you a top notch understanding of the Old Quarter food scene. Dan gave us excellent instructions how to manage crossing the streets of Hanoi too. It was well paced and enjoyed that it was a very small group. You will leave with a full tummy and a smile on your face. Cảm ơn, Dan. Good for Solo Travelers, Couples and Families Be ready to walk and navigate the streets and trust your guide. No rumbling tummy aches from this tour so no worries 5 ⭐️
