Trang Tien ice cream


Trang Tien ice cream, which has been established since 1958, has been well known in Vietnam for its very special flavor that fascinates almost everyone. Those who have ever enjoyed this specialty could not forget the strange eating style – standing and eating! There are many kinds of Trang Tien ice cream, such as green bean, chocolate, green rice flakes, and milk – coconut with fairy cheap price (approximately 0.3US$ per one).

Trang Tien ice cream shop always crowded, especially in the afternoon. People have to queue quite a long time in order to be served, while the seller has to work very hard. Even few unlucky customers could not buy ice creams for themselves and have to wait for the next batch of ice creams.

Ms. Ngan  a 10-year-seller said There are about 25.000 – 30.000 ice creams produced every day, a batch of ice cream includes some thousands ones. Not only Hanoians but also domestic and foreign tourists are in habit of enjoying Trang Tien ice cream. Hanh another staff said There are many kind of people, from kids to pupils, students as well as adults. Everyone likes it very much. Julie Gaunt, a 22-year-old-girl from England joyfully uttered Good, very good. I by chance pass through this street and the tourist guide introduces me this Hanoi’s specialty. I am very curious and queue for some ice creams. It is very delicious and the eating style is also very special.

So, if you have an opportunity to visit Hanoi, try some Trang Tien ice creams. I am sure that you will not regret anymore.
