From The Temple of Literature, we arrived at the restaurant; packed to the rim with lots of people walking up and down and around the array of dishes to fill up their plates. I had to start somewhere and alongside with the rest in the long queue, it was over the main dishes.
I didn't feel like bloating myself up with unwanted calories, therefore I avoided rice and noodles. I opted for side dishes and tiny bits of this and that.
At one point, I was completely blank. With so many choices, I was more of walking around aimlessly and that sort of took up much time.
I decided to stop; enough of food on my plate and off I went back to the seating area and tucked into the savory dishes.
My tour buddies with whom I was seated with had loads of food on their plates; as though they didn't want to miss out on anything, in fact they kept filling up their plates over and over. I couldn't understand how they can stuff so much of food inside their stomach. The next round was my last; desserts to end my meal.
I opted for a small portion of Western and Asian/Cambodian desserts; 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 pieces.
After about one hour, we left the restaurant, got into the coach and it was a long drive towards Halong Bay; up next.
