Adventurous Food Tour with Cooking Class

Food & Drink

If you’re a foodie looking to explore Hanoian cuisine in a limited amount of time, this tour is for you. Sample different street food, learn how to make authentic Vietnamese dishes in a cooking class, and shop for local treats before ending your day with chilled bia hoi.

Start with a cooking class led by Mrs. Hang, a passionate cook, at her charming house set in the backstreet neighborhood of a busy Hanoi street. Visit a market to taste some of Hanoi’s classic bites and make authentic food like pork spring rolls or beef pho.

Next, move to a hidden café in a colonial building near West Lake where locals gather to sip coffee and learn how the age-old café roasts their own beans. Next, try a surprising and special treat that is quintessentially Vietnamese—yet not found everywhere—an insect tasting.

Head to the Old Quarter to try the best bites the markets and streets offer in a city-scale buffet, moving from the rice porridge lady in one street to golden crispy pillow cakes in another. Sample local favorites, get a chance to shop for sweet and savory delights, and then end your tour in classic Hanoian fashion—with fresh, chilled bia hoi (a type of beer) and snacks.
