What to Expect
Meet your guide at Dong Xuan, one of Hanoi’s most colorful markets, and then set out through the maze of stalls as the chef-guide introduces Hanoi street food and flavors. Leave the market for the high streets and back alleys of the Hanoi Old Quarter, walking past landmarks of French Colonial architecture. You’ll meet out-of-the-way street vendors with a wide variety of foods and then sit down to an expansive tasting of items purchased directly from the street vendor’s you’ve encountered along the way. Since the guide explains each dish you taste, this is a great way to understand what you’re eating in Hanoi, from famous dishes to lesser-known delicacies.
