Bun Cha: Bun Cha 34 Hang Than
If there is one place that you need to eat at in Hanoi it is Bun Cha 24 Hang Than! I don’t even like pork, I probably eaten in only a handful of times in the past 10 years.

Don’t expect anything fancy though at this road side locale.

This is your go-to Pho spot for when you’re venturing outside of Hanoi’s Old Quarter. What I loved about this spot was the rare authenticity of it. Simple dishes, simple menu,
