On a recent visit to Hanoi, the Hanoi Street Food Tour came out with very high ratings which made me think it would be a good thing to do. I must admit to a little trepidation, as I know how basic some of the "local" eating places can be, but I decided to drag myself and my husband out of our comfort zones to give it a try.
We had a really great experience and we were so glad that we gave it a try
Our first food stop was to try Bun Cha, which was a delicious broth with a kind of flat, minced pork meatball, some green papaya and noodles. Plus we could add the greens which were morning glory, mint, coriander and thai basil.
I really loved this dish.
The one in the middle is called Nem, they had a similar filling to the Pillow Cake but this time it was crab instead of pork.
The one on the right were called Fried Sour Rolls or Nem Chua Ran, these contained cured pork and shredded pork skins (did not know that at the time of eating lol!!), coated in a flour mixture and then deep fried. Again these were served with the unripe mango slices in vinegar and the herb greens.
