Dan the tour guide made it! He was funny and gave lots of extra information about Hanoi & it's history. First stop was for Banh mi - a bread roll/baguette filled with bbq chicken and vegetables - very tasty Then on to a local restaurant through a back alley - you would not know this place exists, but back there is a lovely home/restaurant serving spring rolls (fresh & fried) along with meatballs, noodles and other local food! All served in what feels like someone's dining room at home! After the 2 courses there it's off to the next venue for dessert. We had a lovely sticky rice & ice cream! After that it was of to the home of the famous Egg coffee! Very tasty. Soft drinks, vietnamese coffee and tea were also available, but egg coffee is worth a try! A great way to learn about the food, culture and go to places you didn't even know existed!
