Bia Hoi

Bia Hoi

1 Nhà Hỏa Hoan Kiem

Bia hoi is Hanoi's famous "fresh beer". The places that serve it are not hard to spot: tiny plastic chairs around low tables, crowded with loads of Vietnamese men pounding back lager served in cracked glass mugs. There a bunch to choose from in the old city area, but the one we loved the best is marked on the map. For more, check out the Squeak Ice bia hoi directory, linked on this page.

Curator Dietrich Ayala

Dietrich was an espresso jerk in Seattle, a catering chef in New Orleans, a dinner chef in Seattle, and finally hit rock bottom after buying a computer, which saddled him with an addiction to technology as well as food. He and his family live in Chiang Mai, Thailand, where he eats unreasonably well during the day, and makes Firefox better at night.
