Delicious Fried Bread for Snack in Hanoi Old Quarter

Vietnam is a heaven of delicious street food from snack, nibble, and quick bites. If you’re exploring the Old Quarter in Hanoi and in need of some yummy snack, you can stop by this tiny shop selling fried bread at the end of Hanoi’s famous beer street.

My boyfriend took me to this place and said that it is a very famous shop for banh ran (fried bread). And I fell in love with their small round fried bread, so I am enthusiastic to share with you the place!

Four types of fried bread - sweet, salty, sugar and honey

It is a very small shop located at the very end of Luong Ngoc Quyen street, where beer street is. I love how the menu is limited and simple. They have four kinds of fried bread, which are sweet (ngọt), salty (mặn), sugar (đường) and honey (mật). So I bought one each to try them all.

My fried breads in brown paper bag

They were served in a brown paper bag and were all still warm. Honestly, I couldn’t quite tell which one is sugar, sweet or honey as they all had sweet green bean paste inside the dough and tasted sweet. But I am guessing that the one coated with sesame seeds is sweet fried bread, the one coated with white sugar chunks is sugar and the brown coloured one is with honey. The last one is the savoury bread. It was crispy on the outside and with savoury filling of mushroom and perhaps some meat(?).

I liked each and every one of these fried breads. I really love the glutinous and soft texture so much! And the price is 2,000VND or 3,000VND for one. I can see myself going back here again and again for more in the future. It’s a perfect snack to try and maybe carry around with you to nibble on it while walking around the beautiful Old Town of Hanoi!
