On a side road in Hanoi’s Old Quarter is a very popular, locals’ favourite restaurant serving what is called Phở Gà Trộn. Translated to English it means Noodle Chicken Mix. The dish, which is not readily found in Hanoi, is rich, fresh and delicious!
One of the neatest things about the restaurant is not the patrons that sprawl along the sidewalk on both sides of the road, but the long slender hall way that brings you to the actual 3-table restaurant. Inside, a single lady methodically and precisely prepares the never-ending orders of the phở gà trộn, as well as a specialty chicken and cabbage salad. A mountain of freshly prepared chicken surounds her as servers run back and forth with trays of the special dish.
The dishes cost around 50,000 VND each (2.5 USD) and definitely worth the challenge of finding the place. The address to this must-try street-food is 65 Lãn Ông, two blocks down from Hàng Gà near “bamboo corner”.
