Detailed itinerary

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.

We spent an amazing evening with our guides, Vu and Tien. For a few hours we could feel ourselves as locals on the scooters and we could get a detailed introduction of the city of Hanoi, the traditions, the local life and don't forget the foods. We enjoyed every single minutes, they really did their best to keep us smiling and to share every necessary information to get acquainted with the culture. Definitely recommended! :)Dorka & Hwan

We had such a fabulous evening with Marie and Tien in Hanoi. They took us around to 7 great locations for delicious street food. We also learned more about Hanoi itself, the food, where it comes from, and it’s history. Exceeded all expectations and they were funny and brilliant guides. Everyone should do this tour.

We came to Hanoi not knowing what to expect and therefore booked the evening food tour after watching The Best Ever Food Review Show on YouTube (for the past year) with Onetrip. We were not disappointed at all. We learned so much about the history of the city, the significance of the monuments, but above all, we ate some of the most delicious Hanoian food the city had to offer. Marie and Vu were our guides for the night. They instantly made us feel so comfortable on the backs of their bikes. Traffic initially seems intimidating, but with their amount of experience, we felt safe and secure. After seven location stops and more than fifteen dishes we were STUFFED, but everything was so delicious. Conversation flowed easily over egg beer, egg rum, Hanoi spring rolls, and pho cuon (just to name a few), there was never a dull moment. I would absolutely recommend this tour to anyone visiting the city of Hanoi. The guides were outstanding, the food delicious, and the knowledge gained, invaluable.
