Eat with the locals
Take a walking tour of the Hanoi backstreets to visit some local markets and specialty food stores to try some dishes and learn more about Hanoi daily life and culinary customs and habits. Then stop at one of the city's small food markets and enjoy a "Che" a local dessert type drink made with sugar cane, green bean, black bean, glutinous rice, and lotus seed.
Then walk deep into the heart of the old quarter and see the vendors making local dishes along the street. Sample Banh Tom or shrimp cake, a Hanoi specialty, in a small food alley. Later sit at a street- side bar for some refreshing local Bia hoi beer before sampling the delicious Banh Cuon, a pancake made with chicken and pork. Finish the tour with the local way with an iced Vietnamese coffee
