I Went On A Food Trip In Hanoi With Locals – Here Are Our Favorite Bites
by Andy Flores | March 21, 2019
When I asked what the pink and slightly charred skewers on our makeshift stool-turned-table were, a friend just told me that they’re “meat on a stick.” With a bit of googling here and there (and more asking, as Google has a lot to show for “meat on a stick”), I found out that it’s actually called “nem lụi,” a type of minced pork skewer that is among Hanoi’s most common street snacks. It’s chewy, succulent, and subtly salty, making it perfect for dipping in chili or lemongrass sauces.
