Dinh Lang Restaurant

Dinh Lang Rest

This is a quite well-known Vietnamese restaurant in Hanoi which is especially popular with visiting Vietnamese and other Asian tourists. It has a good range of dishes and drinks but the price is a bit over the top and the service's not the best.

Dinh Lang Rest

Located right next to the Hoan Kiem Lake, the heart of Hanoi, it has wonderful views over the lake to Ngoc Son temple. There are lots of tour groups coming to this place because of its location, the presentation of the food and the traditional music. The food highlights when I was there were the pork in clay pot and the banana flower salad (pictured above).

Signs and rules in Viet Nam are meant to be broken. Look at the above picture. It says that proper attire is required, no shorts or T-shirts. It's hilarious, isn't it?

Judging by the costumed waiter and the rich interior, you would think the food would be quite good.

What kind of outfit is that waiter wearing? Doesn't look Vietnamese at all.

I went to that restaurant in 2002!

Some of the food were nice, but the problem was that the english translation weren't clear - for example, Pork with Cashews - on the Vietnamese side, it said "heo cât...(etc)" and I puzzled over the cât word, but ordered the dish anyway, and I was halfway through it when I realised it was actually liver - my first organ dish, and it wasn't too bad, so I finished it!

I eventually found out that cât means liver! I was much more careful in selecting my meals for the rest of my trip! o^_^o

PS Love your blog.
