Everyone visiting Hanoi will not miss the chance to enjoy a bowl of Phở bò (Beef noodle soup) which is considered one of the unique features of Hanoi.
For a very long time, “Pho bo Hanoi” has become a favorite dish of all Hanoians. They can enjoy it for breakfast, lunch and even dinner. Pho Bo is the traditional dish of the capital city. Good “Pho” consists of a flavorful broth, soft (but not mushy) rice noodles and tender meat.
A bowl of hot “pho” is an essential part of any authentic Hanoi experience.
The foundation of “pho” is its broth. When made with top-notch components and cooked by skilled hands over a period of hours, it’s a heavenly, multilayered marriage of protein (beef or chicken), dried herbs such as star anise and cassia bark, fresh scallions and ginger.
In addition to Pho Bo, Hanoi is also famous for many other specialties such as Cha Ca La Vong (La Vong grilled fish pies) or Com Lang Vong (young sticky rice of Vòng village ). Let take a street food tour of Hanoi and learn about the tastes of Hanoians.
