Vietnam is full of delicious and affordable food, and Hanoi offers some of the tastiest traditional Vietnamese cuisine. Don't let the prices fool you, as the taste, portions, and quality of the food won't disappoint.

If you are a foodie, Vietnam should be near, if not at the top of the bucket-list! We did not expect to enjoy the cuisine as much as we did while traveling through the country. There's something about the mix of spices and fresh grown crops from nearby fields, and oils that give Vietnamese food a distinctly clean and delicious flavor.

When in Vietnam, eat to your heart's content! It is by far one of the cheapest countries for food in Souteast Asia.

The dishes that usually come to mind when thinking about Vietnam are, of course, bánh mì and phở.

Bánh mì, these delicious french baguettes sliced and filled with various choices of meat and veggies can be eaten at any time of the day. The vegetables are usually pickled julienne carrots, cucumbers and radish. Some bánh mì sandwich shops switch it up and use different ingredients, from fried eggs to avocados.

Highly recommended restaurants for Bánh mì in Hanoi!
