We took the food tour as a group, we were 7 in total. We tasted 7 different dishes (soup, mini panini, salad, noodles, rice pancakes, nem, and finally sweet rice with coconut ice cream), all very good. Our guide, was very dynamic and eager to share her knowledge of Vietnamese culinary culture (and Vietnam in general). Congratulations and thank you!

Our street food tour was arranged by our agency and we had a guide who did only such tours because he has a day job as an MD! He took us to four cafes in the Old Quarter and each one was fantastic. This is the only way for tourists to go in terms of street food because of the risk of less-than-sanitary conditions. And if you're tall and overweight like I am, be prepared for the short stools you'll be sitting on. Also if you are chopstick-challenged, no worries. They all have forks available.
