Hanoi’s Hoan Kiem district is carrying out a project to turn several streets in the Old Quarter into gastronomy streets to highlight the characteristics of the city’s special cuisine.

The streets include Hang Buom, Ma May, Hang Giay, Luong Ngoc Quyen, Ta Hien and Dao Duy Tu.

Dong Xuan Joint Stock Company is encouraging owners of restaurants that create traditional Hanoi dishes on these streets to join the project.

It has also helped restaurants and food stands improve hygiene and food safety, and will conduct training courses to develop sellers’ skills.

The streets will be connected to the pedestrian area in the Old Quarter.-VNA
