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.
Baguette Sandwich: A cheap favourite among backpackers and tourists alike. Freshly baked baguettes filled with pate and roasted meats and vegetables.
Pho: Steaming hot noodles with your options of add-ons (vegetables, tofu and meat)
Fried Tofu and Fishcakes
Tofu with Noodle Bun
These are just some of the street foods that you’ll see in the Old Quarter. There’re more goodies when you walk towards the night market area.
