Mâu Dich 37

Vietnamese in Hanoi

Styled after a government-run food shop from the impoverished period after 1976, Mâu Dich 37 is a unique exercise in nostalgia. Waiters are dressed as state workers, and diners queue to 'purchase' coupons that can be exchanged for food. The menu focuses on robust northern flavours, and features a few challenging dishes like braised frog and snails with ginger leaves.
