Hanoi, as we all know, is the capital city of Vietnam and is a paradise for tourists because it has plenty of attractions to visit, historically and culturally important. The food culture there is unique too, and especially the street food.

Banh Cuon Gia Truyen

Be it a Hanoi serviced apartment or a tourist resort that you have chosen for your accommodation in this city, you can always try the street food out there. Banh Cuon Gia Truyen is a favourite breakfast of the city, generally served with fish sauce.

Banh Tom Ho Tay

Made of battered and deep-fried sweet potato and shrimp, Banh Tom Ho Tay is a Vietnamese dish originating from Hanoi. This is often treated as an appetizer by the local community.

Bia Hoi Ha Noi

This is a special type of a homemade beer that should be consumed the day after it leaves the manufacturing plant. While your stay at accommodation options such as Somerset Hoa Binh Hanoi, make sure that you also visit this beer garden, to have a walk under the shades.

Vietnamese soups

If you step out and ask some local community about the best places to have a Vietnamese soup, they will show you several stalls. For them, soup is common as a meal for breakfast and dinner too. You can have soups of chicken, pork and also fish, depending on your preference.
