Oh boy! The food in Hanoi!

Hanoi is an incredible city for dining. The strong French influence has resulted in a culinary legacy of fresh Asian fusion cuisine and fine wine. Amongst the dishes we sampled were:
  • Rabbit and turnip crumble, served with a tomato sherbert
  • Boneless chicken legs, stuffed with 'tartiflette' (a French dish of cream, potatoes, cheese and bacon)
  • Fresh spring rolls stuffed with omelet, fresh prawns and mint, served with a spicy vinegar
  • ...and loads of fresh, crispy baguettes! (the standard bread in Vietnam)
If you plan on visiting the place, make sure you're hungry when you arrive - you'll find plenty of excellent restaurants there.
