Careful cookery, with good enough service, too. When I return to Hoi An, I'll just dine here every day, it's consistent to the core, every other restaurant in town is a bore. [Feature dish: White Rose (banh bao): steamed prawns in rice dumplings...
1 Lê Thánh Tông, Phan Chu Trinh, Hoàn Kiếm, Hà Nội, Vietnam
Visited here for a lovely luncheon featuring exceptional Vietnamese cuisine. Everything ordered was super fresh. Classics were presented very creatively, and each dish was special. Excellent service, too.
12 Lý Đạo Thành, Tràng Tiền, Hoàn Kiếm, Hà Nội, Vietnam
I enjoyed visiting this club-like restaurant (even though it is not a club, and totally open to the public). Vietnamese food is solid, and they have some Western dishes for those in need of a burger-and-fries treatment. Wine list here is one of...
335 Nguyễn Duy Hiệu, Cẩm Châu, Hội An, Quảng Nam 563830, Vietnam
The restaurant is not on 40 Le Loi, but, nearby: "Down the alley next to 60 Le Loi, Hoi An". Great food, service, and nice inside/outside restaurant, with good vibe. [Pictured: Beautifully grilled and garnished eggplant and bell pepper.]
15 Phố Ngô Quyền, Tràng Tiền, Hoàn Kiếm, Hà Nội 010000, Vietnam
With its style, atmosphere, and history, Hanoi's Metropole is simply one of the region's most unforgettable experiences (the ceiling fans alone are to die for)--even if you just pop in for some tea at the cafe.
65 Ngõ Huế, Ngô Thì Nhậm, Hai Bà Trưng, Hà Nội, Vietnam
This was one of my favorite restaurants to visit for lunch. My partner and I liked it so much that we visited again and again. This restaurant offers rough and ready local dishes, all brilliantly done and super tasty. Flavors abound in each dish,...
Số 4 Lê Phụng Hiểu, 4 Lê Phụng Hiểu, Tràng Tiền, Hoàn Kiếm, Hà Nội, Vietnam
In many ways, the total number of fine Vietnamese dining options in Hanoi surpasses what's found in Ho Chi Minh City. This is yet another example of a solid restaurant in Hanoi. Excellent cuisine, wine list, service, and pinkly décor.
Chocolate Rd, Krong Siem Reap, Cambodia
A meal at HAVEN if you stay in Siem Reap, Cambodia is an absolute must. Located next to Angkor High School, the food is great, the staff incredibly polite and helpful, and the whole dining experience really enjoyable. Apart from indulging in a...
Krong Siem Reap, Cambodia
To be standing in the Angkor Wat complex was a dream of mine. I couldn't believe how old it really was and that it was still there! It was amazing to be able to walk inside and see all the reliefs but, what really made this a special experience...
34 Kingkitsarath Rd, Luang Prabang, Laos
The morning alms walk happens daily in Luang Prabang, Laos right around sunrise. Hundreds of monks, whether aged 7 or 70, walk silently in single file along the beautiful french-colonial city's main street to receive their only food supply for the...
7 Makara St, Krong Siem Reap 17254, Cambodia
The Old Market area in Siem Reap constantly surprises you. I wandered into the clothes section and then stumbled, unexpectedly, into the food area, which you can smell before you see! It's absolutely packed with locals buying their daily...
Tonlé Sap, Cambodia
The river is swelling during the time we went and the life on this floating village was vibrant. Locals were coming and going on their boats and as they pass they acknowledged each other. I wondered if they knew each other from living in the...
