Bean porridge is a simple common dish in Hanoi, especially for the generation born between the 1980s and 1990s.

In the heat of the Hanoi summer, a bowl of green bean porridge is a good way to cool down. Each grain of rice is cooked until smooth and soft. Despite being constantly on the stove, the porridge is not too hot nor smells burnt. Since it has no seasoning, it is better to eat it with savoury toppings.

The most delicious topping is fried tofu. After being fried, the tofu is marinated with fish sauce and spring onions. When serving, chefs cut large pieces of tofu and put them on top of the cooling bean porridge.

The pickled eggplant is also a highlight of the dish. The eggplant is salted and moderately pungent. Customers can also ask for salted eggs and pickled radish. The salted egg is cut in half and placed on top of the porridge.
