Hanoi Hannah New Quarter
Time Out says
This diner may be as jam-packed and bustling as a cheap-eats restaurant in Vietnam, but that's where the similarities in appearance end. Hannah's kitsch design steers clear of the mini plastic tables and chairs that line the streets of Hanoi. Instead, it opts for exposed bricks, retro Vietnamese watercolours, empty beer cans, party lights, – bringing to mind an artfully designed warehouse, set to the beat of low-volume hip-hop.
A serving of prawn and pork rice paper rolls along with a fresh coconut will start you off nicely. The classic beef pho is a popular dish, and if you're sharing, they'll happily split one bowl into two for you. Chicken is cooked over charcoals and served in a bucket with a sprinkling of chilli and lemon – a Vietnamese(ish) twist on the barbecued bird. Other options include the soft shell crab and chilli mayo and a Vietnamese coleslaw with poached chicken.
