Beer in Situ: Bia Hoi (Hanoi, Vietnam)

The Pertinents

The Pub

It’s just a local place for beer and cheap food. You’ll sit among the taxi drivers, uncles, and young families coming back from tennis practice at tiny tables. As soon as you walk in, they will provide glasses of fresh beer. It’s rice-based, 3%-ish lager and goes down easy in the heat.

You can order food from the kitchen, but don’t get all fancy and uppity. This is a down-and-dirty local pub and it’s not geared toward tourists so deal with it. The food is great and cheap. The beers, by the way, cost 10,000 vietnamese dong (44 US cents).

Have a great time. We couldn’t stop going back.
