The birthplace of pho has a lot more going for it culinarily speaking than just piping hot noodles. From sweet sticky rice topped with ice cream to crab meat-stuffed egg rolls, Hanoi’s dining scene is magically delicious. As a Hanoi tourist, I found the city’s food options to be less numerous than Saigon’s, but the concentrated geography of the Old Quarter makes it much easier to navigate and sample the capital’s greatest hits without missing a beat. The Hanoi Top 10 will live in the orange tab next to the Saigon Top 10 for easy access.
