"Food-ventures in Ha Noi"
Ha Noi has to be one of Asia's most popular food cities, and no wonder. It is a maze of delicious treats waiting for an intrepid traveller to discover. Sadly, most tourists congregate around the top spots on Tripadvisor and end up missing the real gems. More often than not Tripadvisor caters to tourists, not locals, and therefore ends up being a totem pole of ratings based on people who actually may have very little knowledge of what is or isn't authentic local food. I feel it's always better to ignore the tourists and eat where the locals go. Sometimes you get the best of both worlds and the locals and tourists find a spot that belts out epic food, but most of the time I find myself eating in small alleyways or stalls that barely speak English and don't have wifi.
After spending months in Hanoi on various trips, we found some absolutely amazing local spots to enjoy a bowl of Pho, a Banh Mi or some Bun Cha!
Do yourself a favour, stop reading Tripadvisor and discover some real gems!
