It’s rare to discover a new cuisine in Hanoi. Most city dwellers have grown accustomed to a limited array of culinary options and reconciled themselves to the fact that most ethnic delicacies will likely be toned down for local palates. But walk along Truc Bach and you’ll find a small, cheerfully decorated restaurant that aims to change this situation. Although it’s modest in scale, the eatery serves flavourful curries in ample portions. What’s more, it represents what could be a completely new dining trend for Hanoi — if only more people were aware of its existence.
