This short activity will provide you with an exciting culinary experience in Hanoi and give you a chance to enjoy the truly original taste of Vietnamese traditional food by enjoying a local meal with a Hanoi family.
What to Expect
17:00 - 18:00: On welcoming you to the host’s house, you will be invited to their living room where you will enjoy a cup of hot green tea - as a traditional custom Vietnamese families use to show respect to their guests.
Then you will come to the dining room and enjoy the meal prepared by your host. You will have a chance to try the traditional dishes in a cosy atmosphere at home. See how the locals enjoy their dinner, what their kitchen looks like, and also witness some customs during the meal: the children need to address the elders before eating and after finishing meal, how to use chopsticks in the traditional manner, and how to place chopsticks to express that we finished meal. Through all of that, you will clearly see the difference between Western and Eastern dining etiquette.
The tour will end at around 20:00 - 21:00.
