Twilight Hanoi Street Food Tour (vegan & vegetarian food tour available upon request)

Food is a significant aspect of Hanoi. Tradition, medicine, entertainment, and nourishment come together in one cuisine. New experiences in flavors and textures await around every corner: vendors laden with goods calling for customers, diners sitting hunched on small plastic chairs, waiters bringing traditional dishes to visitors in fancy restaurants. Beyond the phở and bánh mì that most foreigners would invariably know, there are delights that you may be unable to get elsewhere.
Let our local foodie expert take you on an unforgettable food hunt combined with city exploration.

    • Having an appetizer is not an official tradition before having a meal in Vietnam but we will have “Nom Bo Kho” (nộm bò khô) as a light and refreshing appetizer to start the food adventure. Nom bo kho is a fresh mix of thin sliced green papaya, Vietnamese herbs, roasted peanuts, and marinated dried beef with a family-secret fish sauce recipe.
    • Banh Cuon”- Vietnamese steamed rice rolls that are made with minced meat and mushroom or egg or pick the combination of all three if you prefer, will be the second dish tonight. We will watch how locals make Banh Cuon with their steamer and then enjoy the dish when it is still hot and fresh.
    • Pho is served in every corner of Hanoi and they are great! However, there is a place that is known among locals for “the best Pho” and we are taking you to that place tonight.
    • Oh God, President Obama has tried and complimented this dish! “Bun Cha” is simple but unforgettable with marinated grilled pork served with rice noodles, Vietnamese herbs, and again, the family secret fish sauce.
    • Sip sugar cane juice with cumquat or try hot soup depending on the weather (the choice is various and different from cold to hot weather)
    • The next dish is your choice, we can go for the classic Banh Mi (a crispy baguette, grilled meat, fried egg, sauce, and Vietnamese herbs), Bun Thang (noodle soup, a very Hanoian dish that you can only find it here) or Pho Cuon (Only known and popular among locals)
    • It is time to taste the signature of Hanoi Coffee- Ca Phe Trung (Egg coffee), a creamy soft, meringue-like egg white foam perched on dense Vietnamese coffee
    • There is more! Our secret dish. You wouldn’t know what it is until you get there.

    Founder & Photography Guide

    Specialties: Culture, landscape, portrait, hiking, active and adventurous tour

    Besides my unlimited passion for traveling, a professional tour guide for over a decade, I have been taking photographs since sitting at Hanoi of the University of Culture in the early 2000s. Photography started as a hobby but it was seriously taken due to my work relations and my significant passion for the beauty of our world, especially in Southeast Asian parts such as Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, and Myanmar.

    Within a few years of taking photographs, my works began to be recognized by many reliable international publications such as AFAR Travel, The Times, and The Daily Telegraph newspaper. In addition, I continuously add to my growing profile by winning numerous major awards: 3rd Position of The Independent Photographer 2018, 1st Position of Amateur Photographer of the year 2018, Grand Prize Winner of the AFAR Travel Photography 2019, and a Gold Award of San Francisco Bay International Photography 2020.

    I photograph a wide variety of subjects, from travel to landscapes to street scenes. I enjoy documenting the East’s rich cultural heritage and its land soaked in glorious sunrise or sunset light in remote and secluded spots. And, I am very happy to share my knowledge and experience with you. You can visit Luminousvietnamtour to explore tour!
