We constantly get asked to reccommend our favourite restaurants to clients and this worries us as it seems to change so quickly. What suits Peter, seems to annoy Paul, in much more pronounced a way than hotels or more general hotel experiences. I am often tempted to let people chose for themselves by reading the numerous blogs and reviews out there. However, we can always make the table booking for you too…. As usual speak to us directly here.
For Vietnam in particular there are some brilliant blogs on the subject – the writer of Noodlepie has long since left but the info is still there and it is fantastic. I really like a Girl In Asia too. There are many more.
For us here is a quick list to get you started of places we have experienced… This is by no means definitive though – there are simply thousands of incredible options, from street food to high end dining… These are just places we like – I wouldn’t even remotely claim to be expert enough to pronounce on what is best…
Hanoi – Quan An Ngon. Great idea – brought some of the best street chef’s together under one roof – paid them a regualr wage, added a decent markup and made this a brilliant introduction and must visit if time is short.
Hoi An – The Cargo Club is great for Vietnamese food and a relaxed and stylish introduction to the country….
Siagon – personally i’m huge Pho fan… but for high end eating Nam Kha is fun.
Bangkok – where to start – it’s ridiculous and I usually end up with street food but Suan Kularb – has a great variety of Thai and Chinese dishes as well as Dim Sum to die for at lunchtime and the best steamed fish around in the evening.
Cambodia – anywhere on the south coast where delectable fresh seafood, Cambodian spice pastes, French cunning and Kampot pepper collide to extraordinary affec but the fish amok at The Jasmine in Kampot is particularly blinding….
