[Moderator note: this was posted today on the old International board in response to a four year old thread about chow in Vietnam. We have moved it here as topically it is a tip to a food blog.]

The best bet for anyone looking for food addresses in Hanoi is to look over the food blog called Sticky Rice. The address is Here are some Hanoi specialities to look for (and search for recommendations on in Sticky Rice):

pho bo (beef noodle soup)
bun cha (grilled pork with noodles)
cha ca (grilled fish with noodles)
bun oc (snail noodle soup)
bun rieu (crab noodle soup)
pho cuon (rolled up bbq beef in fresh thick rice noodle sheets)
ca phe trung (coffee with egg - think egg nog but with coffee)
bun ngan (goose with noodles and bamboo shoots)
nom (green papaya salad)
bun ca (fried fish noodle soup)
mien luon (baby eel with glass noodles)
banh cuon (steamed rice sheet rolled up with ground pork and mushrooms)

and for the real (non veggie) food adventurer:
thit cho (dog meat)

These are all very commonly found in Hanoi.

All the addresses of recommendations are in Sticky Rice. No better way to do this.
