The Dish is associated with the shortest street in Hanoi
Before 1945, Ho Hoan Kiem Street was named Philharmonique, Hang Che .Only 52 meters long, the road is famous for many delicious dishes, specially dry beef salad. There are three shops selling this dish on the shortest street in Hanoi, with shops opened for more than ten years.
