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 in Sen Tay Ho (West Lake Lotus) Restaurant. Definitely not the food 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 about the other, including those Caucasian tourists who piled up their plates, literally leaving none for those standing behind them. Crazy. No mannerism, no food sympathy whatsoever, you actually need bags and bags of patience prior to waiting for your turn, thereafter, elbow to elbow eating, with hardly any space for even getting up again to refill your plate. So common when you are in a tour group, also when dining among other busloads of tour groups. Hell hack! 

Nevertheless, admittedly, its good food. Tastefully elevated, as I have already said earlier, huge varieties and thumbs must go up for specifically the typical traditional Vietnamese desserts. Waiting patiently is still the virtue, but worth every 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 utterly applauded for deliciousness, eat till your drop, but don't forget, don't until you forget to hop into your coach at the stipulated time.
