The Perfect 1 Day Eating Itinerary in Hanoi

For those of you who need a little help getting your bearings and your grub on, we've put together the perfect 1 day eating itinerary. We've personally researched, reviewed and rated all of these spots, paying specific attention to western tastes and expectations.


#1 Breakfast - Pho Bo (Beef Noodle Pho) at Pho Bat Dat Dan. Many don't know that Pho is actually considered a breakfast food in Vietnam. One of our favorites in the city that meets the taste and cleanliness standards is Pho .... 

#2 Coffee Break - Cong Cafe for Cafe Sua Da or Coconut Coffee. Congratulations Cafe isa Vietnam War themed cafe chain that makes great drinks in a Vietnam War themed setting. 

#3 Light Lunch - Bun Cha Hanoi is the most popular food that the city is known for. Our favorite spot is only a few minute walk from the central traffic circle at the top of Hoan Kiem Lake. 

#4 Afternoon Snack

Che is known as 'sweet soup' in Vietnam, and it's everywhere. Not a lot of westerners know about Che, but that shouldn't dissuade you from giving it a try. I love it!

#5 Light Dinner  - Banh Mi

#6 After Dinner Drink 

Non-Alcohol - Egg Coffee at Cafe Giang

Alcohol - Bia Hoi??

#7 Late Evening Snack -

Enjoy one of Hanoi's secret dessert delicacies.... FLAN. Our favorite spot, Duong Hoa, serves the best and literally thousands of servings a day, along with a long list of other sweet favorites, including Vanilla Ice Cream served in a Coconut. Sit on the sidewalk and watch the road go by while you eat one of Hanoi's best kept secrets.
