Streetfoods in Old Quarter Hanoi


The Old French Quarter in Hanoi would probably be considered as the backpackers’ hub in that area. Hostels, hotels and guesthouses lined up the small alleys as well as restaurants and shop houses selling a variety of souvenirs.

There are also a lot of street vendors selling a variety of sumptuous local dishes and delicacies.

Here are some of the street foods that I saw (and tasted) while walking around the Old Quarters.
