Mien Luon Dong Thinh – Have You Eaten Fried Eel Before?

John wanted to have supper at this fried eel shop that was packed with many locals. Must be pretty good as business was so brisk. But I was a bit hesitant because I’ve never been a huge fan of eels – not because of the way it looks (or resembles the snake) but I just […]

Com Suon Nuong – Where There’s Smoke, There’s Grilled Pork

Where there is smoke, there is grilled pork. This is indeed very true for Hanoi. It’s so easy to spot a restaurant that serves grilled pork (for example, bun cha) – you’ll either catch a whiff of BBQ or see smoke on the streets. And that was how we discovered this place. Com Suon Nuong […]
