Bánh Mì is very popular in Hanoi. Specially in mornings, tourist can see small ambulatory stores on every street in Hanoi. Bread or more specifically the baguette, was introduced by the French during its colonial period. But the best Bánh Mì Vietnam is in Hoi An which any article about Hoi An local food also can not miss. And Bánh Mì is also quite famous in the world.

Phở (Noodle soup)

Phở is among the most well known Vietnamese dishes by foreigners, and it is frequently served in Vietnamese restaurants around the world. The best place to have phở is definitely Hanoi, even though it may not be the birthplace of the dish. Phở are rice noodles, which are thicker than rice vermicelli. They are served in either beef broth or chicken broth (phở bò means beef pho). This hearty dish would not be complete without a large bunch of crunchy spring onions and freshly chopped cilantro on top — according to Vietnamese elders, spring onions are good for your immune system. One place to have good beef pho is at Phở Vui (Happy Pho), which was established about 30 years ago. The place is especially well liked by locals — not just for breakfast, but also for supper.

Bún riêu

It will be a huge mistake to leave out bun rieu from this breakfast list. Vietnamese noodle dishes are always loved. Bun rieu isn’t an exception. Bún (rice vermicelli) complements shellfish wonderfully — it is eaten with both ốc (freshwater snails), and riêu (minced freshwater mini crabs). Similar to bún ốc, bún riêu is served with fried tofu and sometimes, even thinly sliced beef fillets.

Pyramidal dumpling – Banh gio

When it comes to Hanoi street food, pyramidal dumpling (banh gio) is one of the highlights. The cake is in a pyramid shape, made of pure non-glutinous rice and broth. Fillings are minced pork, wood ear mushroom, and onions. On the outside, the cake is covered in a banana leaf which gives the dumpling a greenish color and a very leafy taste. After boiling for about 45-60 mins, the cakes will be taken out and put into a basket that is covered by a thick fabric. That’s to keep the cakes hot and to enhance the taste. Pyramidal dumplings are served with pickled cucumber, chili sauce, and soy sauce. To be honest, the cake doesn’t look super appetizing at first glance, but we wouldn’t mention it on this list if it wasn’t delicious. Trust me!
