Mau Dich So 37: A Trip into Hanoi's Past
Hidden in one of the streets a block away from Ho Truc Bach Lake, this restaurant attracts many locals. When we went for lunch the other day, we waited for 10 minutes for a table but it was worth the wait. We did not mind as we got into the display of old ordinary things people in Hanoi used in the past from tin plates to water containers to old radios.
How to find this restaurant:
37 Nam Trang - Ngu Xa
Q. Ba Dinh - T.P. Hanoi
Tel. 04 371 543 36
As you can see, right in the restaurant's entrance, the main decor is an old bicycle, reminiscent of the times when this was the popular mode of transport in the city.
Here is a wall in the restaurant with old pictures of Hanoi, old lanterns, hats, cups and slippers. Quite an interesting mix. For food and other interesting pictures of the restaurant, click the link below.
