About the kitchen

Cuisine type: Spanish. My cooking is mainly Spanish food. Tapas.
It is a variety of small dishes to share among the guests. I make my shopping in the local wet markets. Products available are leading the final menu.
And the few specialties are found in few shops scattered over the city.
There are cold tapas as ensaladilla rusa, empedrado, hummus (Mediterranean, non Spanish), some pintxos or crusanes rellenos.
And there are hot tapas as croquetas, bombas picantes, albóndigas or tortilla de patatas.
Lots of veggies, beans and some meat. Herbs and spices dressing all dishes.

Thursday & Friday - dinner time.
Saturday - I could host for lunch or dinner.

  1. Bio

    People and adventure fuel my life!
    I have been travelling around the world with my backpack. Stunning landscapes, amazing experiences but the unforgettable memories are related to people. Being hosted in a maori house in Cook Islands, or living with a Japanese family in Kyoto makes me feel blessed.
    One year ago, I landed in Hanoi and I felt ready to settle down. The city of the organized chaos, vibrant and high personality.
    I love cooking. Nothing makes me happier than hosting people at home, sharing good meal and lovely talks. I'm Spanish, our culture is linked to food. Our lives happen around the table.
    I'm strong believer than everything happens for a reason.

Elsa is the best host & best cook ever! I really enjoyed her tasty food, the cozy and nice atmosphere at Elsa's house and I had a great time chatting with the cool & fun host. It was an awesome night with lots of laughter and delicious food, couldn't ask for more. Highly recommend!


I really had good time with the food and friends from all around the world. Besides having excellent home-cooked food by Elsa, we all had a great cross-cultural experience in a small but cozy and highly diverse space.
