Biking never tasted so good

Admittedly I have absolutely no idea what to expect from Vietnamese food – but I do know one thing.  The Hanoi Bike Shop  is serving up some of the tastiest, flavourful food in Glasgow.  Created by food-loving travellers, it’s simply brilliant.

‘Street food’ served with a smile

Vietnamese inspired ‘street food’  in GlasgowThis Vietnamese inspired ‘street food’ is absolutely delicious – even better, it’s served by some of the friendliest staff in the city.

Recommending one dish over another is nearly impossible – but the Sa Dau Phu Rau Tron (lemongrass marinated bike shop tofu), Ari Rich Coconut, Lemongrass and Lime Leaf Curry and Cha Ca Turmeric Marinated Coley (served with dill & crushed peanuts) are so fantastic, it’s wrong not to try them.   In fact, I’m convinced they’ll make you a better person.

Star light, star bike

Hanoi Bike Shop in GlasgowIf you haven’t been yet, why?  Because it’s an absolute must.

A charming interior is just another added bonus – downstairs is a cosy wee snug and upstairs is a magical paradise of colourful lanterns and bikes.

If the Hanoi Bike Shop is anything at all like Vietnam, then both my tastebuds and curiosity are intrigued.

Happy Tet

And if your New Year lacked that spectacular something, then celebrate Tet (Vietnamese New Year) with mouth-watering food at Hanoi on Sunday 10 February.

  1. I was there earlier this week – my second visit. Possibly my favourite place in the West End at the mo.

  2. On your recommendation I took my daughter to the Hanoi Bike Shed last Saturday where we enjoyed a delicious meal and friendly service. My favourite was their mushroom and tofu pancake which we wrapped in lettuce leaves and dipped in a sweet and sour sauce. Cold rice noodle salad was much more exciting than it sounds and offset the heat of the chilli and lemongrass oil. And we loved the dark sweetness of the vietnamese coffee to finish. Thanks for your tip.

    • Oh fab! So pleased that you loved it as much as we did! They have changed their menu since we were last there so all the more reason to go back time and time again. Thanks for sharing. Always welcomed. 🙂
