Following the success of the “Street Food Festival” in Ho Chi Minh City last November, a similar event will take place on January 20 and 21 at Quan Ngua Stadium in Hanoi, by Coca-Cola, Foody, one of the local leading food advisor websites, and Kenh 14, an online newspaper for teenagers.

Hanoi cuisine is both rich and varied and it’s said its exquisite taste is best enjoyed in winter, as the food festival hopes to prove. Typical specialties of the capital will be available, such as pho, bun cha (grilled pork with noodles and fish sauce), nem (spring rolls), and others.

Together with traditional food, popular street food will also be served, such as chao suon (rice soup with pork ribs), bun oc (snail with noodles), pho cuon (fresh spring rolls with beef rolled in a pho sheet), banh khuc (rice balls made from glutinous rice, green beans, pork, spices, and cudweed), banh cuon (a thin, wide sheet of steamed fermented rice batter filled with a mixture of cooked seasoned ground pork, minced wood ear mushroom, and minced shallots), and oc luoc (boiled snails).

Delicious dishes from all regions are also on offer, providing a major feast on the cusp of the new lunar year.

All dishes are on a list compiled from votes by Foody readers.

A bottle of Coca-Cola sells for only VND5,000 ($0.22), and the beverage giant will also hold games with food vouchers up for grabs.

A new addition to the Hanoi holding not seen in Ho Chi Minh City is dynamic 3D photo booths with street art, for fans to take cool photos.

The festival starts at 9am and finishes at 10pm on both days. Entry is free. Coca-Cola is also cooperating with Uber Vietnam to provide new users with two free trips to get to the festival, using the codes COCAFOODFEST or COCACOLA2018.
