Day Hanoi Street Food Walking Tour

Hanoi is regarded as one of the world's best street food cities, with an abundance of cheap food and drinks. Deep-fried treats, crunchy, refreshing salads, steaming hot noodle soups, exotic snacks, coffee, locally brewed beer, desserts, and much more are available!

On the streets of Hanoi, you're never far from a tasty treat! Navigating all that the streets have to offer can be difficult, and while there are plenty of tours available, our adventure is focused on one thing that matters: the food.

And we'll take you right there. There is no better way to discover Hanoi's hidden secrets and cuisine than through this one-of-a-kind, meticulously planned street food adventure. On this tour, you will be able to sample the following street foods, which are popular among both locals and visitors:

  • Bun Cha (grilled pork patties with noodles)
  • Pho bo (beef noodle)
  • Bun Rieu (Sauce with Crab Noodles)
  • Pork porridge
  • Vietnamese Savory Pancakes (Banh Xeo)
  • Banh mi
  • Vietnamese Salad

The tour also incorporates flavors and foods that are typically off the tourist radar, such as:

  • Golden Pillow Empanada
  • Steam rice roll
  • Eel Noodle
  • Shrimp Donut
  • Snails
  • Special coffee
  • Local snacks
  • As well as a visit to the market (if the market is open). 

Not all of it can be included in the time allotted for the tour, and some places are just open at specific times, which is why we have designed the tour to include suggestions from the guests as well as suggestions from our host. This mixture allows a good balance between customizing personal tastes with the must-haves of Hanoi’s street food. Please note that the tour is 2-2.5 hours long, depending on the size of the group. A small group of no more than five people would go on a tour that would last no more than 2.5 hours.
