More About This Experience

Hanoi is considered to be one of the world's greatest street food cities offering a wonderland of affordable food and drinks. On offer are deep fried treats, crunchy refreshing salads, piping hot noodle soups, exotic snacks, coffee, locally brewed beer, desserts and plenty more! You're never too far away from a tasty treat on the streets of Hanoi! Navigating all the streets have to offer can be tough, and while plenty of tours are available, Backstreet Academy's adventure centers around one thing that matters, the food. And we know just the places to take you. There's no better way to unlock the hidden secrets of the Hanoi and it's cuisine than through this unique, carefully designed street food adventure. Some of the street food you can sample in this tour include the usual suspects that are loved by both locals and visitors alike: - Bun Cha (grilled pork patties with noodle) - Pho bo (beef noodle) - Bun Rieu (Crab noodle soup) - Pork Porridge - Savory Vietnamese Pancakes (Ban Xeo) The tour also however infuses flavors and food that are usually out of the tourist radar, they include: - Grilled Quail - Golden Pillow Cakes - Beef Noodle - Eel Noodle - Shrimp Cake - Snails - an assortment of drinks from popular joints - local dried snacks - and an inclusion of visit to the market. Not all of it can be included in the time allotted for the tour, 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 of customizing personal tastes with the must haves in Hanoi's street food.

We loved the variety of street food that we tried, the tiny hidden spots we never would have found on our own, and the ease with which we moved from one location to the next - so well thought-out and varied!

We really enjoyed sampling a range of really tasty dishes from eateries that we never have been able to find ourselves.
