More About This Experience
Some say the culinary history of Vietnam has distilled the best of its colonial and native flavors and settled down today on what is notably the most seductive cuisine on the planet - well, at least for some. As you step into the backstreets and into local households, the dynamism of Vietnamese cuisine suddenly goes over and beyond what you see in the streets and restaurants taking on a different interpretation. Like individuals forming meanings as they marvel at a masterpiece, the Vietnamese cuisine can suddenly become a personal interpretation and take on a character of its own from street to street and household to household.
Backstreet Academy will give you access to one such interpretation where you can explore the Hanoian Cuisine with a culinary character of its own. Start by choosing 1 menu among 5 menu below.
