Hanoi is the birthplace of many delicious Vietnamese dishes, including the de-facto national dish, Pho. Join us on this unique and fulfilling journey as we navigate Hanoi’s street food-filled alleyways by motorbike. Make sure you come with an empty stomach, as we aim to please!
5:30 PM - 9:30 PM
We will begin our tour exactly at 5:30 PM seeking Hanoi’s hidden gems for some grub to eat and some beers to chug. Your guide will tell you all you need to know about the food you get to enjoy on this culinary adventure, from their history and significance, to the ingredients and preparation. Don’t expect anything fancy! The places we have in mind are extremely local--you will be rubbing shoulders with other local diners while watching the chaotic traffic of scooters, cyclos and pedestrians as they pass by.
On the menu are some typical foods such as nem nướng, nem chua rán (grilled pork skewers) and phở cuốn (our national dish, but with a twist) to those a little more adventurous such as chả rươi (sandworm - yes, you read that right - sausages), and egg coffee. And of course, there will be craft beer!
Beyond enjoying the deliciously authentic Hanoian food, expect some sightseeing as you drive around lakes to catch sunsets, cross bridges, and snake through the beautiful Hanoi Old Quarter with lots of colonial buildings and other sights to see. Once the tour is over and you are full to the brim, we will drop you off at your accommodation for a good night’s sleep.
Note: While other modes of transportation are available, we highly recommend the motorbike option, as it is the most authentic way to really feel like a local. Make sure to let us know your food preferences or restrictions you may have (including if you’re on a vegan or vegetarian diet) so we can personalize your itinerary for the most yummy experience.
All costs, including those of the meals and drinks, are included in the price.
