About Me

Trying to run or dance by toes…Don’t be fooled, it was someone, a young girl…Nah, it can’t be me…! Is it?!?

Hello, This blog carries my food exploring journey and it is dedicated to everyone who also has unlimited love with food and travel, especially in Hanoi, and Vietnam.

  2. Hi Tho,

    Nice blog I found here ,especially on VN food!

    My colleague and I will be travelling to Hanoi and wondering if you could recommend a local guide to bring us around taste local Hanoi food for 1.5 day from 22/9 – 23/9 2015.

    Appreciate if you could. hehe


    1. Hi Chuk 🙂 Thank you for stopping by my blog. Do you want a private tour guide? Or a food tour?
      01282307302 is number of Hanoi Food Tasting Tours, which I often recommend to my friends. They have food tour guides with good knowledge 🙂
      I would love to join you guys for food talk, hehe 😉


      1. Hi Tho.. i found them at Trip Advisor as well and have since made contact with them already. With your recommendation, I am more confident now *thumbs up*. We may use their service. Let’s see if it all works out… and sure, we can food talk!!! haha


      2. Actually.. i am trying to draw significance between Hanoi and HCM food. Based on my taste bud, it seems Hanoi food are heavier in taste, much like.. well, lots more MSG hahaha..

        Also, the price point wise seems much cheaper compare to HCM.

        This is based on my last visit a few months back.

        Perhaps you can share your views on Hanoi local food price and taste bud. Would love to hear from you.


      3. Sure, I lived 8 years in Saigon for study and work, so I think I can give you some opinions 🙂 If you want to try authentic Hanoi cooking (real authentic one), I would recommend Com Vinh Thu (14 Ly Thuong Kiet), or Anh Tuyet restaurant (25 Ma May) 🙂
