The trend of ‘food tour Hai Phong’ is getting ‘hot’ with a dense frequency of appearances on social networks.

Food only available in winter
These days, when walking along many streets in Hai Phong in the evening, you will probably see people lining up at some street corners and waiting to buy a dish with a very fragrant ginger smell. That’s bubbly – food sold only in winter in Port City.

At first glance, it is quite similar to the floating cake that Hanoi people love, because there are also round balls of glutinous rice flour and sugar water. However, the floating cake to eat has a small size and thinner shell, the filling is pure green beans or black sesame, slugs and coconut fibers. And the water part is also very different when it will be a slightly viscous type, not a liquid one. Pieces of ginger are stir-fried thoroughly, boiled with sweet cane sugar juice, bringing a characteristic aroma, dispelling the cold of winter night.

2 more food courts less known
Not wanting to have to wait in line for tens of minutes for a seat in familiar markets such as Co Dao, Luong Van Can or Tam Bac, some foodies have sought out places a little further. Among them are Quan Toan area (Hong Bang district) and Ha Lung market (Hai An district).
Quan Toan Market
If inside Quan Toan market are shops specializing in wholesale fabrics, clothes and dry foods, the area outside and around is a place to eat.
Just go around from the direction of the East gate to the North, you will meet from the stalls of mixed tea, jelly gloves, delicious skewers of bread and meat, and a whole row selling milk tea with childhood flavors.
Not to mention, there is also a row of food stalls at the foot of the old dormitory right next door. In order not to have to go around in circles, search for Quan Toan elementary school and ask people to help you enter the dining area. Here, there will be shops selling crab cakes, chicken, blood hearts, porridge hearts, spring rolls, dumplings, and pate bread next to each other. In terms of quality, there is not much difference, but the plus point is that the price only ranges from 15,000 VND – 30,000 VND and the sales ladies are all very friendly.

The most crowded must be the mussel porridge shop with two types of porridge and seeds. Over time, the price of each bowl of full topping has increased to 25,000 VND – 30,000 VND / bowl, but, compared to the fragrant fried mussels with mushrooms, mixed with the thick porridge, it is well worth it. . In addition, in addition to the shop in Cau Dat, this is also a rare place that sells sparkling water in the morning.
A small note is that most of the shops in these two markets are sold in the afternoon. You should be able to be present from about 3-5 hours is reasonable, if you arrive too late, you will most likely have to bring an empty stomach back.
