Before coming to Vietnam, I didn’t have any expectation for the restaurants. But I was quite pleasantly surprised by the first restaurant we went – The Madam Yen and the subsequent ones we went to. The restaurant for the evening is the HOME Restaurant. Located in the Tru Bach neighborhood of Hanoi, this century-old French mansion… (continue in English here)
本來對於在越南的餐廳沒有什麼太大的期望，但是經過第一天中餐在 Madam Yen 之後，覺得可能太小看這個畢竟被法國殖民了 100 多年的地方。
On our way to the restaurant for the evening. Passed by lots of these old mansions very beautifully and romantically decorated.
這間的燈飾更讓我想到了之前在倫敦接近 Christmas 時在泰晤士河岸的一間餐廳.. 很喜歡那暖暖的色調。
These old mansions in Hanoi’s old quarter have mostly been converted into restaurants and shops. I love the lights outside of this mansion. Reminds me of a restaurant in London.
There are also buildings and restaurants like this. They look just like what you’d find on the streets of Paris. The road to the restaurant we were going was quite narrow. Our coach couldn’t get in so we walked on the narrow streets bustling with motorbikes and other people getting to places.
今晚我們到河內的一間叫 HOME 的餐廳，雖然裝潢＆擺設很歐式，但這邊的料理是越南料理.
The restaurant for the evening is the HOME Restaurant. The interior decor is very European but the cuisine here is almost 100% traditional Vietnamese.
The mansion is surrounded with outdoor seating area for those who like to have stars above them as they dine. But it was actually quite hot and humid so we definitely opted for the indoor seating area with air-con.
這餐廳在河內的 Tru Bach 地區，算是在老城＆西湖中間. 這棟老宅曾是一個法國人的住家，也有大約 100 多年的歷史，經歷了兩次戰爭還屹立不搖的站在這，算是這老城內的眾多保存不錯的老房子.
The restaurant is located in the Tru Bach neighborhood, in between the old quarter and the West Lake. This used to be a French residence and is older than a century. Having survived 2 devastating wars, it’s still standing here today being one of the most well-preserved mansions of its time.
Every wall in here is not just a wall. Even the air-con becomes part of it. See it?
We were quite a big group. Didn’t manage to take a good photo before people poured in. So if you’d like to take a good look at its amazing interior decor, you can check out their website.
在這邊也是可以上 cooking class! 而且是先從到當地的傳統市場開始，先來試試看菜市場的那種討價還價，把食材帶回餐廳後再來跟著這餐廳的主廚做越南料理.
You can also go for a cooking class here. The class starts with getting your own ingredients with the chef of the restaurant at a local wet market.
我們每餐其實都有附個 softdrink or beer. 而且這邊的啤酒好像也滿多可選.
We had beer to accompany each meal .. But a different one each time.
Didn’t take much photos after the first few dishes. I suppose you have to check it out yourself then!
