The view of Hanoi from the low tables and plastic stools of a street vendor is an essential city experience. And the food’s delicious and cheap too. The Old Quarter’s teeming with street food options. Aficionados will persuade you that one packed little street food spot is better than another, but we’re rarely convinced. Bun cha, banh cuon, pho and a plethora of other Hanoi specialities are prepared right before your eyes. If the locals are flocking there, that’s usually enough recommendation for us. If it meets your hygiene standards and it’s busy, give it a try.
