HUE STREET FOOD TOUR!
Hue has even more to offer than just a legendary, full-colored scenery. The city is also the central of Vietnamese cuisines and there are a high variety of foods waiting for you! Some of the city`s most famous delights are to be experienced within this private guided tour.
We start the tour from my office at 5:00 pm or at your hotel.
The first stop is at “Con Hen” which in english means “Hen Island” to have Clam rice with vegetables. Clam-coocked rice has a unique mixed taste of salt, sweetness and sourness and you can feel the scents from the sea – served with vegetables.
In old times local villages named this place because the inviroment attracted a lot of hens to enjoy their life and to flourish. The riverbanks of the Perfume river has a deep layer of accumulated mud and the river flow running through this place is very pure and calm, and it brings with it delightful scents that awakes your senses.
Next stop is “Banh Canh Ca Loc” (tapioca/rice noodle soup) which is a specialty of the Central Vietnam. A bowl of banh canh ca loc consists of tapioca noodle, some slides of fish, green onions, eryngium leaves, and the broth. Tapioca is kneaded with water, then cut into long thin slides and is then hard-boiled. Snakehead fish is a fish living in freshwater. The meat of the fish is cut into small slides and then stir-fried. The bone of the fish is used to boil the broth and sets an amazing taste to the soup. It is a combination of a the many flavours, the sweetness of the broth, the greasiness of the snakehead fish and the toughness of the tapioca noodle that makes this meal so special and tasty.
We continue to Tran Quang Khai street – we try “Nemlui”, which are Vietnamese skewers traditionally made from the Hue region.
On this street we also try “Banh Khoai”, a local Vietnamese cake made from Casava, sugar and coconut milk.
We move on to Hung Vuong Street to taste the Hue-famous “Che Hue” which is a sweet soup made from condensed milk, mung bean and jelly.
At the end we go to enjoy drink at Vietnamese coffee shop like almost Vietnamese people do when they have free time to chat with friends. There is a big variety of vietnamese coffies, both cold drinks and hot. Other refreshinging beverages is possible to get here.
We will go back to the Localhuetravel office and finish tour around 8 -9:00 pm
