Fresh green rice
Many people say that “seeing nuggets is seeing the whole autumn of Hanoi”. Because in autumn, Hanoi’s weather starts to cool, more pleasant than seeing the scent of rice on the street vendors stroking around the streets. And every degree in that autumn, people invite each other to “hunt” the burdens of nuggets sold on the old town.
The fresh nuggets are wrapped in old lotus leaves, the lotus flavor mixed with the nuggets contains so many essences of heaven and earth.
Com also has many styles, many people like it at the beginning of the season because it still has a clear flavor of young nuggets, the seeds are flexible and very fragrant. On the contrary, many people prefer nuggets at the end of the season because the nuggets at this time are much thicker, softer and more fleshy. Hanoi nuggets should not be eaten with a spoon, but just need to put a pinch in the palm of your hand and then put it in your mouth, so you can fully enjoy the delicious taste of the nuggets.

Sticky rice rice
In the autumn of Hanoi, skipping sticky rice with rice would be a huge omission. This is a very popular dish. Sticky rice is now sold all year round, but it is not until autumn that it is popular and delicious.
Sticky sticky rice has a strange but familiar taste, just like the taste of sticky rice often served in tea dishes, and the fragrant aroma of coconut sticky rice, with a little sweet green bean flavor, very attractive. All blend together to create a fragrant sticky rice sticky rice dish from fresh rice grains wrapped in lotus leaves with the scent of heaven and earth.
Just like the rice nuggets, there is no need for fancy spoons and chopsticks, just eat a few small pinchs, the fragrant sticky rice with coconut milk spreads in the corner of your mouth.

Not only the Hanoians, but this is also a gift that leaves a strong impression in the hearts of any diners from afar because people love the aroma and sweetness of rice cake.
Although the rice cake does not feel the authenticity of the fresh nuggets, it is no longer preserved with the original seeds, but is blended into a layer of flexible cake with a sweet and strange green bean filling. Each thin cake, only the size of an adult palm, is wrapped in white cellophane outside and packed in square green boxes. The flexible, fragrant rice cake has become a gift of Hanoi to bring everywhere.

Com is a gift that has become a feature of Hanoi’s culture. The more fragrant, chewy nuggets, the more clearly you can feel the sweetness of the nuggets at the tip of the tongue. However, the nuggets are only delicious when eaten right in the first 1-2 days, after that, the nuggets will no longer be flexible. That’s why com was born so that people could preserve the flavor of the nuggets for a longer time, gradually making it an elegant snack in the autumn days of Hanoi.
No need for many fancy toppings, but still many expatriates love this tea because it keeps the full flavor of the nuggets. At present, not many people sell green rice tea because it is only seasonal, the taste is not sweet, but only occasionally on the tip of the tongue.
Although we look for many famous tea shops, almost all of them are missing the tea nuggets. Fortunately, I found the dish “coconut nuggets” at the 1976 mixed tea shop on Tran Hung Dao street. However, the rice nuggets here are not the same type of tea made from tapioca flour with nuggets, but fried nuggets are processed into small pieces and then mixed with coconut milk, so it becomes green rice. Now, if you want to enjoy the original traditional tea, you may have to go to the markets to have traditional and typical Hanoi tea dishes.
