Amazing variety & taste and so cheap.

Pho Ga (chicken). Phở or pho is a Vietnamese noodle soup consisting of broth, linguine-shaped rice noodles called bánh phở, a few herbs, and meat. It is primarily served with either beef or chicken. You can then add extras like marinated garlic, chillies, lime and various sauces. My favourite on a wet grey Ha Noi day.

Vietnamese Street Food

Hanoi has been listed as one of the ten greatest street food cities in Asia. The capital city and its environs are the birthplace of many quintessential Vietnamese dishes, such as Pho and Bun Cha, and the city is often cited as one of the world's great food capitals.

It is also a street-eater's paradise, with a huge range of dishes for those who want to eat like a local. In fact, many people swear that the best food in Hanoi is found on the sidewalk, with dishes that feature fish sauce, lemongrass, chillies, cilantro and many other fresh herbs. Plus lots of fresh seafood.

The city, which celebrated its 1,000th birthday last year, has put those centuries to good use perfecting its unique dishes. Although vendors often cook in small shop fronts, they serve their wares on the sidewalk, on small plastic tables and chairs that can seem very small for overgrown foreigners.

The most popular dishes include Bun Rieu Cua (soft noodles with freshwater crab sauce), Barbecue Chicken, sticky rice and Nem Cua Be (crab spring roll).

HCMC (Saigon) Most famous street foods include Pho (rice noodles), Banh Mi Kep Pate (sandwich with pate), and Banh Xeo (sizzling cake or fried pancakes made of rice flour, turmeric powder, and slivers of fatty pork and shrimp). Yum Yum.

Pho Bo (Beef).
Bò Bía is popular street food in Vietnam. It's fresh crunchy rice paper rolls filled with jicama, eggs, chinese sausages...
Cha Ca with turmeric, dill, shrimp paste, fish sauce, chilies, silky noodles and fresh herbs to season the chunks of moist fish. there is a whole street in Ha Noi selling only this dish.
Bánh Xèo, literally "sizzling cake", named for the loud sizzling sound it makes when the rice batter is poured into the hot skillet. These Vietnamese savoury fried pancakes are made of rice flour, water, turmeric powder and stuffed with slivers of fatty pork, shrimp, diced green onion and bean sprouts.

Bun Ca "Bun" simply refers to the rice vermicelli noodles, and "Ca" is fish, but this breakfast noodle soup is so much more than the sum of its parts. Plenty of bun ca variations abound, but in northern Vietnam, dill is a popular ingredient and is used liberally here, more as a vegetable than an herb. The fish-pork broth is tinged red with tomatoes, which are included for color rather than taste. If bun isn't to your liking, you can also get banh da, dried flat noodles flavored with tea powder, instead.
Banh Tom – Crispy Sweet Potato and Prawn Fritters. Served with Bibb Lettuce, Mixed Herbs,Rice noodles and a Light Fish Sauce.
Bun Cha One of my favorite Hanoi street foods. "Bun" once again referring to the rice noodles, and "Cha" to the marinated char-grilled pork (center), both in the form of loosely packed meat patties and thin strips of belly. A hands-on, DIY meal, Bun Cha arrives with a platter of fresh herbs, fresh chilies, garlic and ginger, fried spring rolls, and jackfruit-infused nuoc mom for dipping. The idea is to go bite-by-bite, customizing each spoonful with little bits of your preferred ingredients. Bun Cha overloads your palate in the best possible way.
Fresh Spring Rolls, known the world over as 'Vietnamese spring rolls'.
Pho Cuon This is not to be confused with the noodle soup Pho as "Cuon" refers to the fresh rice paper sheets used to wrap a mixture of minced beef and fresh herbs. Assembled to-order and dipped into nuoc cham laced with young papaya and chayote. Pho Cuon is a somewhat recent, and wildly popular, addition to Hanoi's street food scene.
