Trang Tien Ice Cream

In terms of Hanoi travel, Trang Tien Ice Cream is an enticing food to be included on your must-try list. This special dessert is a perfect blend of pleasant aroma, creamy flavor, and soft texture that brings out an intensely refreshing sensation.

1. A glance at the history of Trang Tien Ice Cream Hanoi

Back in the colonial period, ice cream was brought to Hanoi by French colonists at the Grand Hotel on Hang Trong Street, Hoan Kiem District. At that time, ice cream was considered a luxury that local people were unable to afford. It was not until 1958 that Trang Tien Ice Cream was officially launched at No. 35 on Trang Tien Street. Since then, it has gradually evolved into a speciality, along with other famous street food in Hanoi.

What makes Trang Tien Ice Cream stand the test of time is its quality. Going through hard years with lots of ups and downs, it still retains the exact same flavor as it did 65 years ago: a natural fragrance with a soft, tender texture that immediately melts in your mouth. The application of handicraft production and the use of natural ingredients created a unique taste for the ice cream, as well as ensuring its healthiness for customers.

Today, Trang Tien Ice Cream is not simply a popular refreshment but also a memory lane and a beautiful cultural trait that every Hanoi wants to preserve.
