Get ready for a tight squeeze. Le Drapeau de la Fidelité, a simple and characterful little hole run by a former philosophy professor from Vietnam, is as small as it is inexpensive – but then this only adds to the conviviality. And what prices: they’ve barely gone up in the restaurant’s 30-odd-year history, allowing you to indulge in a beer for €1.50, and a range of unpretentious Vietnamese dishes for €6 (€5 for students). Mr Quan, the owner, lets his eccentricities shine through in the décor: tracts on metaphysics plastered over the walls, the old State of Vietnam flag perched over the bar, French pop songs from the ‘80s playing in the loo… It’s a hoot, and the cheapest in the capital to boot. But take note: the kitchen closes at 8.30pm, the venue at 10pm.
