Hungry in Vietnam - Hanoi Street Market on Pho Gia Ngu

Hanoi street market

Banh Tom Ho Tay

Baby crabs

Hanoi cha gio (spring rolls)

Lucky duckies

There's a daily street market in the Old Quarters, north of Hoan Kiem Lake on Pho Gia Ngu. We usually get hassled to buy stuff, but this time, we went during siesta hours when most vendors were knocked out on the ground. It was the perfect time to get some snap shots of visual goodies. Enjoy!

Just catching up after being banned at work from your page. I think it started when you used the word "whore". ;) The fascists here deemed your page inappropriate. ;)

Thanks for blogging while you're there! Your photos are amazing! What kind of camera do you use?

And congrats on your anniversary! Seems you both have the same passion for cooking and eating. That's got to be a solid foundation for any relationship.

Be safe. And I look forward to eating vicariously through Vietnam!

Tulip said...

This is my first visit to your food blog and I love your photos. Not sure I could eat the roasted bird with the face though, I'm a bit squeemish like that!!

I'm off to look through the rest of it.

Same here... first visit to your blog and definitely won't be my last.

Travelling and Eating is my dream! I wish i was in your shoes.

Pictures look amazing. I actually want to see more. Have you posted them elsewhere? Look forward to your HK pics because I'll be there from Dec - Jun.

SteamyKitchen...those shrimp cakes (Banh Tom Ho Tay) are ultra fattening. So don't be jealous...of my growing gut. haha!

Sam..thanks for visiting. Wait til you see what I get to eat in Saigon. The food down south is a gazillion times tastier!

Daily Gluttony...ditch work..do it for your mental health. I'm really appalled at how little the average American gets time off. It's just not right. Hope to see you soon too!

La Dra...sorry my site has been banned. Haha for a newer post I was gonna use the word "vajayjay" but hesitated since my use of "whore" has kept me out of controlled web territories. As far as cameras, I'm using a Nikon D70 with a 18-70mm, the macro on the lens is key. *And thanks for the anniversary encouragment. So far our trip to Macao, Yangshuo and HK was a success, so I'm deciding to keep him. He's my chef and travel partner. I'm set mama.

Godknows..hey thanks for visiting.

Food Marathon...there has been so many moments where I felt like I was in Little Saigon (Westminster). It's just nuts!

Hey Tulip..thanks for visiting. I didn't eat any birds while in Vietnam. They haven't been good at controlling the bird flu...so it's no birds or bird heads for me!

Hey Henry...you can easily travel/eat if you teach. Well that or move to Europe and get at least five weeks off. I'm still editing photos, but they're all located at:

I share the flickr site with my partner in crime Eat Drink & Be Merry. Anyways, thanks for visiting...stay tuned for more food & travel.
