What’s not to love about fresh, flame grilled chicken, marinated in honey, dusted with local spice and served on a stick with an ice-cold beer? Honestly – not much!
Modern life can be complex and quite honestly, I sometimes watch the rapid pace at which the world is changing and wonder why many of the things of yesteryear – from my childhood – are being so rapidly replaced.
It’s the same with food and beer – too many varieties, too many options and too many people playing with recipes that are tried and true and have been satiating people for generations.
Thankfully Hanoi is still, in a lot of respects, a traditional city that has held onto many of the things that have characterised it for so many centuries. One of these is Ga Nuong – uncomplicated, unpretentious and bloody unreal! Honey and spice marinated chicken that tastes even better than it sounds! Satisfying, tasty and real. No need for some artificial substitute here thank you. Simply placed over an open fire, bbq’d to perfection, plated and ready to eat.
And the best part – the ‘wash down’. An ice-cold beer, that complements the flavours and invokes feelings of sentimentality. Encouraging one to sit a while, and simply watch local life go by.
Tan and Brett not only love this food but live this food. Come and let Hanoi Beer Tour show you where and why Simple is Simply Better.
