I 💚 Vietnamese Chè Dessert Soup

When I look for food on google maps, I always found some called Chè, firstly I thought it’s like the French chèz xxx, hahha but no, apparently it means dessert shop.

Such as … such as… you can easily find these in the street. Normally small shop with many chairs outside.

People sitting outside to eat

Chè is a kind of sweet soup with pudding, fruit jelly, cheese jelly, noodle jelly, durian, all kinds of stuff, thy have so many variations, I still have to try more!

You can take it away too

Still have to try more, my task in Vietnam!

Cute Red Café ☕️

Found this cute café in Hanoi old quarter, spent a few hours inside.

As you see, there are many such cafés in Hanoi, facing the streets with a row of chairs, Vietnamese love coffee and they have good coffee too, often you see people with a cup of coffee sitting in front of the street, watching people and cars passing by.

I sometimes wonder, isn’t it a bit too loud? When in Europe I always prefer quieter cafés, in Hanoi there are some quieter neighbourhoods, with International restaurants, such as the area near west lake. But I just like those noisy cafés in the old quarter, maybe because Vietnam is still new to me, or because it’s just different than other countries I’ve been, making it special to me.

Decor looks so French

Had some coffee and cake, not bad.

Do you also like coffee?

Have a good day ahead.

Joy

在河内,遍地都是咖啡店,终于明白了为什么我很多比利时法国的朋友都非常喜欢越南。喜欢咖啡的我本人也一下喜欢了河内老街,车马喧嚣的街,街边都是咖啡店,这里人喜欢沿着街而坐,即使街上很吵,喝咖啡人还是显得跟闲适。

很奇怪,我通常都喜欢安静的咖啡店,在河内也有不少安静的街区,但是在这里喝咖啡我也喜欢坐在喧闹的老城。这里咖啡挺便宜的,差不多一欧喝一杯,蛋糕也是差不多一欧,和国内很多咖啡店相比真的很便宜了,国内咖啡店真的很贵啊比欧洲也贵。

Snapshots Hanoi

I think I’m taking too many pictures, probably storage will get full very quickly but can’t help, Hanoi streets are so lovely! There’s always a lot going on. It can also be I just arrived, everything seems so new to me, maybe I’ll gt bored after a few days haha.

rainy day

busy street

residencial area

narrow road full of flags

some tourist in conical hat

grab motor is so common here, understanable, it can be much easier than car because traffic is crazy. I wanted to try but haven’t tried yet because last time when I asked price in the center, some driver tried to scam me and I was too lazy to bargain with him.

main road

little temple everywhere

Bamboo alley

Walking around Ha Noi old quarter, I found an interesting little street on my way finding some restaurant to have dinner.

Full of unfinished bamboo sticks, I guess in countries like Vietnam, bamboo can be made for many products.

Probably tourist girls in Vienamese traditional clothes.

Pancake lady

Lady stopped walking, sitting down and cook, because this man wanted to buy the pancake from her, he was talking to her while she’s walking then she stopped and started cooking on the street.

I wonder what he’s making but couldn’t communicate. He’s cool with me taking pictures, most Vietnamese people are cool with that in fact. But he wasn’t very happen when I took out my tripod taking selfies, because I stood too close to his bamboo, my bad.

I was wondering what those bamboos’ really for, then in another street, I saw a guy smoking with it.
