Tous Les Jours Bakery @ Vincom Mega Mall Royal City – Best Breads I Had Eaten In A Long While

While it was a pity that we didn’t get to enjoy the recreational facilities at Vincom Mega Mall Royal City because of the maintenance work and renovations, it wasn’t a wasted trip either because if we hadn’t been there, we wouldn’t have discovered this amazing bakery.

It seemed as though we had been in Hanoi for a long time, so much so that we didn’t know what else to do or where else to go. And there wouldn’t be a better time than now to chill out in a cafe and at the same time, plan our itinerary for Bangkok which […]

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 […]
