Hold on tight because we are about to blow your mind! This fantastic food tour in the city of Hue, all while riding a cyclo, will give you a taste of not only the incredible Vietnamese cuisine but also get you under the skin of the city to experience its infectious vibe.
Observing the daily bustle of the city, we will ride out to gorge on the first couple of dishes - banh beo (steamed rice discs topped with shrimp) and ram it (sticky rice dumplings), two fantastic items that will get you salivating in no time. Continuing our enthralling journey through the food scene in Hue, we will enjoy a scenic ride across the beautiful Perfume River via either the Phu Xuan or Trang Tien bridge. We will arrive near the Citadel to Hong Mai’s shop who has been rustling up the most delicious banh khoai in the city for the last 20 years. A traditional crispy pancake served with his unique soy dip and fresh herbs, this is one of the most scrumptious local dish you will try!
Having feasted on the mouthwatering delight, we will head to the entrance of the Dong Ba Market to sample the delectable Bun bo Hue, a beef vermicelli soup. This is a marvellous local street food experience as the stall is open only post 6pm and you can witness the natives thronging it for their dose of foodgasm. We will then move on to treat your palate to one of favourite desserts in the city - a typical egg rice cracker with beef or pâté. Not only will you sample it, but you also get to try your hand at preparing this delicacy on charcoal for a full-fledged culinary sensation. Sweet deal, right?
The icing on the cake? We will drop you off at the historic pavilion of the Citadel where you can savour your tryst with Vietnamese cuisine through the day and feast your eyes on spectacular views of the Imperial City while sipping on a rejuvenating cup of royal herbal tea or the iconic Vietnamese coffee!
Your Hue street food tour ends at a local coffee house where you will be immersed in the relaxing atmosphere while sipping a lovely tea or Vietnamese salty coffee.
