I really like the Danilovsky market for its high quality, fresh produce, but there is another reason to love this market – Vietnamese food!
All around the outside edges of the Danilovsky market you will find a lot of food vendors selling a different ethnic foods. They are all selling quality food, but the most popular by far is a small Vietnamese noodle stand. It almost always has a line of people 20 deep, but the wait is definitely worth it!
Now I am not 100% sure of the name for this stall, but you can’t miss it – the line is like a sign post. The menu is all in Vietnamese and I am not sure about the English language skills of the servers. However, you can easily order a Pho Bo, or just point to some of the fresh spring rolls that are on offer.
The food is all very tasty. I have been to Vietnam before and I think the noodles and spring rolls from this vendor are as good as anything I have tried in Vietnam. In my opinion, the Pho noodle soup is by far the best deal. For just 350RUB you will get a big steaming bowl of noodles with plenty of beef and a generous heaping of bean sprouts, aromatic herbs as well as sauces to add to your broth.
As far as Vietnamese food goes, I would have to say this is the best I have had in Moscow and is definitely a a step above what is offered by the popular (and convenient) Viet Cafe. These noodles are worth a special trip and a wait in a long line.
While you are at the market, don’t forget to have a browse around at the fresh produce on offer!
