My favourite dishes in Hanoi

Image - Phở Cuốn Hưng Bền
Phở Cuốn Hưng Bền
Giang:People familiar with Pho noodles in a hot soup bowl. I love Pho in all shapes and sizes: as noodles in a bow, deep-fried then topped with stir-fried beef and veggies or ready-to-eat rolled Pho with all delicious ingredients inside. Highly recommend you to try the delicious Pho rolls and deep-fried Pho with egg.

Giang:Located in a small alley, the fish noodles here is extremely delicious. The place is pretty crowded around lunch time but it's definitely worth the wait! It can be served with the soup as in picture or served as dried noodles with a separate soup bowl. Don't forget to order their deep-fried fish cakes and the kumquat tea.

Giang:Feeling adventurous? Why not give this eels glass noodles soup a try? Crispy fried eels will make you become addicted.

Giang:My way to kick-off the day whenever I'm in Hanoi. Congee topped with shredded pork and "cháo quẩy". A light but satisfying breakfast.

Giang:Juicy snails and tender pork ribs go together. How can you say no to a bowl of goodness?

Giang:"Bún chả" is a must try when you visit Hanoi. Grilled pork, lots of herbs, rice noodles. All combine together makes this one so special that even Obama tried it when he visited Vietnam.

Giang:Bún đậu mắm tôm - Noodles with fried tofu, served with shrimp paste (mắm tôm), pork sausage (dồi heo), Vietnamese young rice patties (chả cốm) and lots of herbs. This dish has a distinctive smell because of the shrimp paste so it might be not for everyone but if you can stand the smell, you should give it a try.

Giang:Listed no.1 in the article "17 ways to drink café around the world” by BuzzFeed Magazine, served at Trump-Kim summit press centre, this coffee has a creamy and sweet flavour because of the egg yolk and condensed milk. In my opinion, better to try the hot version than the cold version. If you can't drink coffee, egg hot chocolate can give you the same experience.

Giang:Feeling hungry late at night after your night out in Tạ Hiện? This Mì Gà Tần (Black Chicken Herbal Soup with instant noodles) is the comfort food that you are looking for.

Giang:How Vietnamese youngsters hang out with friends on a budget? Enjoying nem chua rán (fried fermented pork roll), lemon tea along with jicama is the answer.
