Hanoi, the capital of Vietnam is a magical corner and full of intense aromas.

You can't leave the city without trying their classic pork noodles, called Bun cha. The dish consists basically of grilled meat served as a hamburger and accompanied by fish sauce, spices, vegetables and noodles. The same goes for the nems, a kind of Vietnamese-style vegetable spring rolls.
