bun-2 (1)

This busy semi-al fresco restaurant spills out onto the corner of Hang Manh where it intersects Hang Quat and Hang Non in Hanoi’s Old Quarter. Bun Cha — little grilled pork patties with noodles, greens and a light broth — is an iconic Hanoi dish. That and nem (spring rolls) is all this place serves. People come from all over at dinner or especially lunch time either to stay and eat or carry home. Good, cheap, an authentic northern Vietnamese experience.
