The next leg of our trip is 3 days in Hanoi. We had originally planned on going to Sapa but the rain, distance, and fatigue deterred us. Everyone says that Sapa is a must-see for Vietnam and we’ll have to make it a priority for our next Vietnam trip. Henry has family in Hanoi and it has been so much fun eating and seeing the city with all of our “tour guides.” So far, our days have been filled with eating and drinking coffee so here are some photos of the wonderful food we’ve been eating.
Some sort of breakfast pho
Ladies preparing some sort of breakfast noodle
Delicious Bun Cha
Chim Chim: Fried pigeon
Some soup that was served before the pigeon
Beefsteak Restaurant – Go way down through the alley to find it
Cha Ca Thang Long: Vietnamese Tumeric Fish with Dill
Breakfast pho at the hotel we’re staying at
Porridge from restaurant owned by Henry’s cousin’s wife’s family
Banh Tom: Fried Shrimp Cake
Yogurt Cacao? Not too sure about the name but it’s basically a glass with ice at the bottom, yogurt cubes on top and lots of cocoa powder poured over it. You have to smash it down to make it into a a beverage.
