It aims to introduce and promote Hanoi specialties and preserve them as art and cultural heritage values as well as bolster tourism, according to the Hanoi People’s Committee.

Domestic and foreign visitors can try typical Hanoi dishes such as “pho”, “cha ca” (grilled fish), “banh chung” (square glutinous cake), “com” (young sticky rice) from Me Tri village in Nam Tu Liem district), “xoi” (steamed sticky rice) from Phu Thuong village in Tay Ho district, “gio cha” (steamed ground meat) from Uoc Le village in Thanh Oai district, and “banh cuon” (steamed rice rolls) from Thanh Tri district, among others.

They can also explore the trade village associated with each of these dishes, from its history and development to the cooking process of chefs, including introductions to the ingredients and utensils and also some secrets.

There will also be an exhibition area showcasing Hanoi in the past and the present and the Hanoian way of enjoying cuisine.
