In Hanoi, street food is not merely a quaint or exotic culinary excursion, but is central to how people eat and helps define the culture and rhythm of the city.  The food available in Hanoi’s narrow alleys and tree-lined boulevards is just as much a part of the city as its lakes and old-world architecture. In fact, all of these elements combine with the indomitable spirit of the Vietnamese people to produce a lively culinary scene that is both diverse and confronting.
