Food in Vietnam

Surprise you in every bites, have rich conversations and share moments of life.

We take you along the tracks and in the surroundings of the railway to introduce you to Hanoi local food and way of life.

Our tours are not only about Vietnamese traditional cooking and eats, they are also about culture and community building. Beside food, we hunt trains on our way.

Food tours by The Railway Hanoi

Why these food tours?

Thao & Fabienne designed the food tours to bring travelers and inhabitants of the railway area closer together. 

They believe that good food makes people happier – those who cook and those who eat equally.

With each tour, 10% of the benefits go directly to the train street community through the organisation of educational, artistic and business development projects.

It’s a way of doing sustainable inclusive tourism
and being part of the Railway Hanoi adventure!

“We had wanted to do a food tour while in Vietnam but really wanted an authentic experience, not a tour with a huge group of people. What is really special about the Railway Hanoi food tour is that they are so intimate. We walked with Fabienne and learned so much about Vietnamese cuisine and met some incredible people.”

Matt and Sarah 

from Dubai

“The Railway Hanoi Food Tour was fantastic! They give you a little taste of everything from coffee and cocktails to nibbles, mains and dessert. Their location choices allow you to really experience the city and the Vietnamese culture.”

Megan

from South Africa

“A must for people who have just arrived in Hanoi, it’s a beautiful crash course in Vietnamese cuisine. Centered in and around the area of The Railway Hanoi, it gives you a truly local food experience – a little language and local knowledge of how things works gives you the strongest foundation.”

Matt
