Get an insider’s perspective on the vibrant food culture of Vietnam with chef Tracey Lister, the talented and friendly proprietress of the Hanoi Cooking Centre, a cafe and hands-on cooking school on the fringes of Hanoi’s legendary old quarter. In addition to fun and approachable tutorials in classics such as spring rolls and prawns and pork wrapped in betel leaves, Lister leads students through local markets, offering insight on local produce and unfamiliar ingredients.

Pho Real

Pho Gia Truyen
49 Bat Dan | Old Quarter, Hano
Pho, the fragrant dish of rice noodles topped with thinly sliced meat and anchored in a rich broth, is Vietnam’s answer to soul food, and nowhere is it more beloved than Hanoi. You’ll see locals on every corner, slurping it for breakfast lunch and dinner, from makeshift cafes and roadside stands. But if it’s the city’s best you’re after, find your way to Pho Gia Truyen, a plain storefront in the old quarter that’s known for its delicious brisket and voluptuous stock.
