In West Lake, there are still many delicious and affordable dishes for everyone.
Referring to the places to hang out with the people of the capital, in addition to Sword Lake, West Lake is also a very popular place. Especially on a windy day, everyone wants to “pick up the car and go”, enjoy the cool air, and dispel the hustle and bustle of the city.
However, many people fell into the situation of walking a distance of nearly 10km – more than half a round of the lake but could not find satisfactory food and drink. In fact, around West Lake, there are thousands of delicious dishes, from sidewalk dishes to high-class, from street vendors to luxurious cafes, but one thing is that many shops are open just to “chop guillotine” but can’t eat.
And if you don’t want a trip to suddenly lose fun because of the above, immediately save the list of must-try foods when coming to West Lake.
The 35,000 VND seafood vermicelli bowl that once made a splash at 9A Nguyen Dinh Thi has increased in price today. However, with the bar broth, crispy goldfish pieces and a variety of toppings such as cartilage ribs, shrimp, toppings or rolls, spending more than 50,000 VND, while eating and watching the whole view of West Lake, is completely worth it. .
Chicken noodle soup
Many people can’t help but be embarrassed when they hear that a bowl of chicken noodle soup in alley 115 An Duong is sold for 25,000 VND. But in fact, the restaurant’s chicken thighs are only small, fit in a beer can, stewed with soft wormwood leaves, fragrant herbs and served with a squeeze of childhood-flavored noodles.
Tam Da slope bean vermicelli
Not so excellent, but in this West Lake area, it’s hard to find a better place to eat than Tam Da’s sloped bean vermicelli, right at 253B Thuy Khue. A trick here ranges from 45,000 VND – 50,000 VND with a variety of toppings. In particular, in addition to beans, fried rice, spring rolls or fried intestines, this restaurant also has thin, crispy, crunchy pork ears, which are quite strange to eat with shrimp paste.
No matter which way you walk around West Lake, you can enjoy the famous spring rolls. If Co Beo restaurant at 3 Thuy Khue is loved by many toppings such as grilled meat, fried rice, spring rolls, pickles, the shop at 20 Yen Phu Nho is a place frequented by those who like to eat simple. Just a thin crust cake, meat filling and hot wood ear is enough.
Tacos are a foreign dish that is very popular with young people in West Lake. Along Tu Hoa Street, there are also a series of shops, but people still like to wait in line for a cake of Hey Pel. The two best flavors here are chicken fillet tacos with Frappaz sauce and ground beef with sweet pelo sauce. Normally, two people can eat together a size L for about 200,000 VND to fit their stomach.
Or there are people who like Taco Non La’s tacos at 32 To Ngoc Van.
Whether it’s a hot or cold day, eating ice cream is a “procedure” that anyone who comes to West Lake also volunteers to do. You can eat ice cream cones, popsicles or ice cream cups with original flavors such as chocolate, vanilla, nuggets…. Worth mentioning, the price of ice cream only ranges from 7,000 VND to 20,000 VND.
Banh xiu pao at the gate of Quan Thanh temple is also a very suitable dish to snack on during a day around West Lake.
If you want to enjoy grilled hot pot dishes or chicken feet, snails, clams, etc., you can go through the middle of Nguyen Dinh Thi Street or enter the Studio Lane on Thuy Khue Street.

A small note to not “lose money” at West Lake is to prepare a motorbike with full lights, bring your driver’s license, and identification, and pay attention to following the directions of traffic signs.
