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.
inside the shop
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!
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.
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.
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.
little temple everywhere
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.
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.
