The tour will become an extravaganza as soon as you reach the next stop – a local seafood vendor. Here you can see mouth-watering displays of fresh goods. Sitting on a small plastic chair by the sidewalk and you will feel as if you are a Hanoi native eater. It’s time for you to dip in a multiple of seafood dishes, from grilled oyster with onion sauce or cockles, grilled prawn, steamed crab to stir fried glass noodles. Your meal will be accompanied by harmonious drinks like a cold cup of water or draught beer (Bia Hơi in native language).
