May - Cloud Restaurant

May Cafe

My friend, Hoang invited me out for lunch at his favorite restaurant which is out of town. I have been past here quite a few times but have never noticed this cafe. It's a beautiful old wooden traditional Vietnamese-style house, with a small garden with lots of bamboo and other imitation trees but it does look good.

This restaurant is located on a busy street but it's really quiet because the restaurant is behind a big wooden door and you can sit in the garden below or on the second floor inside the entrance. My recommendation is choose a table in the garden, right next to the fountain. It's great on a really hot day.

We chose fried rice and stir fried noodle for a quick lunch. The food is quite tasty with very nice presentation which I always notice. The best thing about this place is that it's a small and simple menu with reasonable price and friendly family service and quiet so that we can chat without the screaming like in some other places.

A very charming blog, which I am trying to find in the blogging world in VN about the life, eating, drinking, going-out... here. And lovely to read your reflection on Hanoi :)

I need to correct your title of this post: May stands for Luck, not Cloud. The owner of the house and owner(s) of the cafe/restaurant were "lucky" to find the place.

And it seems to me the May reduced its service ranges. And 2 months ago I went there twice but found it closed :(
