Sen Tay Ho (West Lake Lotus) Restaurant - Hanoi, Vietnam

Morning was broken like the first morning at Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum for the first 3 hours. Thereafter to One-Pillar Pagoda and The Temple of Literature before food and leg brekkie at this restaurant. Definitely not the place for people like me who hate waiting in long queue with a plate in hand as though begging for a meal. No doubt, aplenty and huge varieties of Western, Asian, Vietnamese and vegetarian dishes but disappeared as quickly as they were refilled. None cared if the other has eaten as plates were pile up leaving nothing behind. Thus, patience must be the game before you squeeze in between the elbow to elbow dining area in the name of enjoying of a good meal at this free wheel,  all walks of life, bus-loads of tourists restaurant. 

Good food I admit, admittedly thumbs up to the typical traditional Vietnamese desserts. Waiting patiently is still the virtue, but worth every waiting minute for the steamed sticky cake wrapped in banana leaves, black bean paste sweet porridge, two varieties of steamed custards and palm sugar with peanuts and candied ginger. These must be applauded for the deliciousness, eat as much as you want and then make sure you hop back into the coach.  

A solid hour for lunch, then a long winding drive to Halong Bay - one of the best highlights in Vietnam.
