Bát Đàn, Hoàn Kiếm, Hà Nội, Vietnam
‘Pho’ is possibly one of the things I miss most about my many years spent living in Hanoi. Many claim the staple breakfast dish was created from French inspiration, while the soup also has undertones of Chinese cuisine. For me, the history is...

12-14 Hàng Gà, Hàng Bồ, Hoàn Kiếm, Hà Nội, Vietnam
This is a reliable place to sample one of Hanoi's indigenous classics: banh cuon, or steamed rice rolls stuffed with minced pork and chopped wood-ear mushrooms. Less a restaurant, more a hole-in-the-wall with a few tables and chairs strewn around,...

This popular spot turns out savory sticky rice and sweet/salty pickled cucumbers. We got one version with "fat and meat" and another with corn. Both are topped with green mung bean paste and fried shallots. It all sounds like an unusual combo but...

There are more complex items in Vietnam's culinary arsenal, but for sheer, simple enjoyment few things beat the humble banh mi. A filled baguette stuffed with all variety of goodies from grilled pork to pickled daikon and tasty pate, the sandwich...

Some of the most delicious grilled fowl in Hanoi can be found on Ly Van Phuc, colloquially known as "chicken street." The meat here is marinated in buckets before being thrown onto the grill. Although it possibly wouldn't pass many modern...
