Hi, we are Ha and Thao.

Hanoi is not only proud of culture but it also gathers North and South eateries. There is no better place to be entertained than one of classic, funky family-run noodle shops you find in Hanoi backstreets.

The most delicious places to find Vietnamese Pho Bo Beef Noodles are single-dish food stalls of Diem and Nam families from West and South of Hanoi, run mostly by women, offer finely crafted dish passed from parents to children for generations. It's great to taste Fish Hot Pot in family of Lady Bang, her food pop-up is where you find simple cooking recipe. This tour will delight your palate to delicious Bun Cha wonder from Huong Dung family in a village North West of city. We will take you to a great variety of Xoi steamed sticky rice from South East.

Here is perfect introduction to Vietnam best cuisines:

Beef Noodle Pho Bo: mild salty delicious beef broth, a sprinkling of green onion, coriander, fresh rice noodles. Locals started to cook Pho Bo in 1903, two representatives of tasty broth are families Diem and Nam from West and South of Hanoi.

Chicken noodle Bun Thang: is prepared with two dozens of fresh ingredients such as mushroom, basil, boiled chicken, chicken egg slices and shrimp-base broth, Lady Duc is known by one-of-a-kind recipe, unique and different among noodles from North of Vietnam.

Crab noodle Banh Da Cua: crab meat, tender slices of beef mingle with crunchy peanuts, bean sprouts, flavored with fresh herbs, crisp dried shallots, fish sauce and chili pepper, noodle comes sans broth, keeping various textures intact and ingredients from becoming sodden, phenomenon of North East cuisine, widely popular in Hanoi.

Fish hot pot with noodle Cha Ca: Vietnam is changing, something important remains the same. Mouth-watering fried fish, great shrimp paste, peanuts, lime, delicious dill flavor. Cha Ca is one of top ten food choices in Vietnam and listed in the book “ 1000 places to see before you die” by Patricia Schultz.

Steamed sticky rice Xoi: is more a meal itself. Xoi comes with number of toppings, you pick sticky corn base, then select pate, chickens, omelette, pork shred, cinnamon flavor sausage, stew pork, extra green bean shreds go on top, crunchy fried shallot. After first bite you would understand why locals vote for it in the last 10 years.

Vietnam baguette Banh Mi: The French brought the baguette and Vietnam takes it to a different level. Banh mi is stuffed with colorful pickled fresh vegetables, cilantro, carrot, cucumber, spring onion, cold cut sausage, fried egg and fiery chilli paste. Somewhere people stick to the basic elements: fat, protein, bread and pate.
