Taste how fresh herbs flavor Hanoi street food to create classic local favorites.

Discover Vietnamese cuisine expertly flavored with fresh herbs on this food tour through the streets of the Old Quarter. Guide Lara will walk you through the largest wet market and onto Lan Ong Street, where local vendors craft aromatic meals.

First, taste eggs flavored with mugwort, a bittersweet herb that creates complex flavors. Try soft cakes infused with herbal flavors that bounce between savory and sweet. Next, you'll sample a variety of lotus-infused foods, including Vietnamese pizza and handmade spring rolls. Fresh herbal teas and juices will complete your tour.
