BAM! Our restauranteur friends invite us to their restaurant for lunch. . .what’s it gonna be? Simple little salad with some small sandwiches?…just a quick bite of fish before everyone heads back to work?…maybe just some easygoing soup and a cup of tea?…no, no, and no. Instead, we gotta lunch Ha Noi-style. . .we gotta have two fruit and veggie salads, a pile of chicken chunks cooked in pandan leaves–totally delicious, a giant, i.e., normal-sized, fish hot pot with all of the fixins, and coconut and durian ice-cream to wash it all down. . .mmm, aaahh!. . .two-and-a-half hours later we are on our way. Damn, we love lunching here in Ha Noi, and you will too if you ever find yourself hangin’ out in the wonderful capital of Viet Nam.
I send you full and satisfied vibes from the Home Cook gia dinh BB restaurant on Giang Vo Street. . .feel them. . .they will help you take a really good nap later today.
