About Vietname Cuisine
With more than 1,040 restaurants in Hanoi catering to tourists as well as locals, there’s no lack of opportunity to dine out in Hanoi. Most restaurants offer some Vietnamese dishes, including the local specialties of Bun Cha Hanoi, Bun bo Nam bo, Nem Cua Be (crab spring rolls),and Nom bo kho (green papaya beef salad). Of course, each restaurant will have some house variations of Vietnamese food. However, increasingly local restaurants in Hanoi are trending towards both western and fusion cuisine. Each year there’s an increasing number of restaurants offering pasta, pizzas, Western style sandwiches, and yes – some offer Mexican cuisine! Commercially this makes perfect sense as it seems these foods are what more and more tourists are seeking. But here at A TASTE OF HANOI, we say: what a shame!
After making the incredible effort of traveling to Vietnam, it seems curious that western tourists would want to eat only western food that they can have anytime at home! We think that Vietnam is arguably the land of the richest and healthiest cuisine in the world. What can we do to help showcase these amazing local dishes?
