20 Hanoi Street Foods under 10,000 VND

Hanoi is not only famous for beautiful landscapes, but also fresh, tasty and cheap street foods. Let try what you can buy with 10,000 VND or less. 

1. Fried steamed wheat flour cake: fried steamed flour



The price of a fried steamed wheat flour cake ranges from 5,000 – 7,000 VND, and it's a popular afternoon snack. Serve with a sour-sweet sauce or chile sauce on the side.

2. Grilled meat by stick: grilled meat


Many people, especially children, enjoy grilled meat on a stick. One price ranges from 7,000 – 10,000 VND, with a loaf of bread with grilled pork sticks costing an extra 2,000 VND. Afternoon walks through Hanoi's streets reveal grilled shops near the sidewalks, which emit a strong odor.

3. Banana cake, yam cake


The major ingredients are banana, yam, and flour, which are then fried in cooking oil with only 5,000 VND calories for one cake. Because they are high-fat foods, you should limit yourself to one or two cakes at a time.

4. Gio cake


Gio is the name of a popular Vietnamese dish called Gio Cha, but it contains no Gio. Rice powder and core (chopped black mushrooms and meat) are used to make this dish. The price ranges from 6,000 – 9,000 VND.

5. Pillow cake


You are correct. Its name comes from the shape of a pillow. Meat and quail eggs form the core of the dish, which costs between 8,000 – 10,000 VND. People enjoy pillow cakes, which are frequently sold during the winter. Serve with a salad and a sour-sweet sauce on the side.

6. Quay



Quay is commonly served as a pillow cake with salad and sauce for a reasonable price of 2,000 – 3,000 VND per one. This meal is commonly used in hot porridge or Pho.

7. Fried food with stick


These foods are available in front of schools for students at a low cost of 6,000 – 8,000 VND. It's a small party for students after school, with lots of smiles and sharing. There are many different kinds of sticks, such as hot dogs, fried Nem Chua, fish, and shrimp...

8. Fried cake: fried cake shop



Fried cakes are classified into two types based on their core: sweet with sugar and salty with meat and black mushrooms. Rice, peanut powder, and honey or sugar are the main ingredients. The price ranges from 3,000 – 4,000 VND, with the salty version costing 5,000 VND and served with sauce.

9. Babe duck egg (Trung Vit Lon)


Have the baby duck in the eggs, a nutrient-dense dish that many foreigners and visitors dislike: D. For breakfast or snacks, you can find them in Hang Rong shops on every street in Hanoi. The price ranges 10,000 VND, and it's best served with salt and ginger.

10. Quail egg (Trung cut lon)


Trung Vit Lon is the same way, but with Quai's eggs instead of Duck's eggs. I adore this cuisine and frequently purchase it from a nearby market to prepare it. The price in the local market is around 10,000 VND/10 eggs, but the price in a street store is around 10,000 VND/5 eggs due to the sauce and the fact that they will boil them for you. The sauce is made up of lemon juice, salt, ginger, and pepper.

11. Sugarcane juice



This is a wonderful drink for hot weather and is a nutritious drink for about 7,000 – 10,000 VND. You can find them everywhere with a sugar cane juice machine. Just sit down, order a glass of sugarcane juice, and wait 5–10 minutes. If you don't want to sit at the shop, you can alternatively go down the street with a nilon bag of sugar cane juice.

12. Banh nhung (Nhung cake)




5,000 VND for a stack of Banh Nhung, which isn't a typical Hanoi street snack. They're popular among children because of the crack.

13. Bo bia



No one is sure why it's called Bo Bia, but it's one of my favorite street snacks. Coconut fibers, sesame, a particular piece of sugar, and the "bark" of meals are among the constituents. This dish is rolled like a spring scroll and costs only 6,000 VND. What a pity, because Hanoi now has a plethora of Bo Bia shops.

14. Trang Tien ice cream



Trang Tien is a street name in Hanoi as well as the name of a well-known ice cream brand that everyone in Hanoi is familiar with. For the past 50 years, the old brand name has been used. It's not just inexpensive (8,000 – 10,000 VND) but also unique in taste. Trang Tien ice cream is sold on Trang Tien street near the Sword Lake, as the name suggests. If you don't like any of the ice cream shops in Hanoi, you may buy some, sit on your bike, and enjoy it; there are many couples there, all smiling; or you can hold your ice cream in your hand and walk around the sword lake.

15 . Every kind of Bong: corn bong



Girls and children's favorite street food, which is low in fat and may be consumed in large quantities, The cost per pack is only 7,000 – 9,000 VND/pack. They're usually made using wheat or cassava flour and then fried.

16. Fermented yogurt with sticky rice




In contrast to Hanoi and other regions, where they frequently add more things to yogurt to create flavor, such as fruit or Nep Cam. The cost is around 5,000 VND.

17. Potato storm: fried potato


Isn't it a cool name? This new snack for children costs around 9,000 VND. It tastes like a variety of fried potatoes.

18. Mixed sour fruits




Mango, plum, guava fruit, and other sour and green fruits are the key ingredients. Foods that are sliced and mixed with sugar and pepper powder become appealing. The price ranges between 7,000 – 9,000 VND /100 gram, depending on the price of the fruit.

19. Caramen: Hang Than caramen



This meal, which is an old food that may be unfamiliar to outsiders, is a famous site to consume this meal. You just go to 29 Hang Than street to try this food.

20. Tao pho



This is a distinctive northern Vietnamese summer dish made using tofu but at the end of the tofu-making process. To produce a bowl of chilled Tao Pho, the salesperson will slice the Tao Pho into a bowl, then add flower sugar and ice over it. The price of each bowl is between 6,000 - 8,000 VND/ bowl. They can be found on Hang Rong in Hanoi's streets, with their distinctive sound of "Tao Pho de."
