Hanoi Food

Hanoians like to eat heavy breakfast. We eat Phở, Vietnamese sandwich, sticky rice and many other heavy dishes in the morning. Most people start the day early at 5 AM so expect to hear street noise near your hotel early in the morning. There are regular restaurants that serve all types of Vietnamese food however most local would go to street stands for cheap delicious treat.

Here are some of my suggestion for yummy food in Hanoi.

1. Bún Thang: is probably the most distinctive dish of Hanoi. It includes duck eggs, organic chicken, pork ribs, vermicelli, dried shrimp, onion, dried onion,  fish sauce, brown sugar and vinegar.

Address: 31 Phan Dinh Phung – A point on the map
