[Travel] 5D4N to Hanoi - DAY 3

Pho Thin

Location : https://goo.gl/maps/wxyVQGNc6Wo





Not sure if this is the right famous one as google maps does show another one further away. This looked very old school with only locals around so I thought i'd give it a try.




Price wise surprisingly expensive for such a dingy place. 50000VND. The taste? Did not blow me away. It is a good bowl of pho but I have tested stronger beefier noodles in Penang. Maybe that is my preference, I just prefer strong beef taste in the soup. Pho is more of a weaker taste, mixed with some Vietnamese herbs.



A Walk Around Hanoi
It feels to me that we can probably see Hanoi in just a day or two. We walked around Hanoi for a day and pretty much covered most of the major places.










I dunno why, but I LOLed


Yes, shithole

Escape route. Or as those who watched Initial D know, longkang running style (hang kui pau fat)


US Senator John McCain was prisoner here.



Quan An Ngon

Quan An Ngon has multiple branches in Vietnam. This place seems to be a collection of most if not all Vietnamese cuisine. Tastes great as well. The selections are really, really extensive.









Continue Walking Around Hanoi
Love just walking around in a foreign country, just taking in the different sights and cultures.
















Young Coffee

Lovely place! I really like the iced coffee here. Nutty, chocolatey awesome Vietnamese coffee. And very affordable (20000 - 25000 VND).





Water Puppet Theatre





I think this should be a must see. I have not heard of this anywhere else. A nice experience. Be warned it is in Vietnamese.






Xoi Yen

Glutinous rice with pork. Whats not to love? nice savory rice topped with I think pork lard? It was like a velvety mash potato with slight pork taste. The fried onion really adds wonderful aroma to it. Try the pork pate as it works really well with the rice. Highly recommended






Banh Mi Hoi An

Super awesome banh mi. Bread is crunchy outside and soft inside. The ingredients are wonderfully flavored and balanced. And just enough so it fits my mouth. It was easy to bite and each bite full of flavor. Awesome!
