Back to Hanoi Again

Vietnam Air from Danong to Hanoi, less than an hour flight. For us we wished it were longer. First time in years since we have flown first class. Only seat I could book as it was the end of the Chinese New Year and all seats were taken. Before boarding we enjoyed our time in the Classy Lotus Lounge.

Upon arrival we are accustomed to the crowded streets, markets and motor bikes everywhere. The street food looks so damned good but….no way I can handle all the dishes being washed in grimy wash pans.

We are lucky we found Aubergine Cafe on our walk around town. The food, atmosphere and the prices are unbeatable. We had morning glory with garlic, duck in an amazing gravy sauce, and chicken skewers with vegetables. Dinner for two, and beer and wine 350k dong.


  1. Just woke up to Facebook Memories reminding me that I was in Saigon a year ago. My post was captioned “dodging scooters like there’s no tomorrow” 🙂 glad you found something to eat! hope we can all travel again soon
