As food concepts go, the humble sandwich is about as simple as it gets, and is enjoyed in various forms all over the world. Rosemary Kitchen and Sandwicherie is one of a growing number of Hanoi sandwich joints taking a step away from the locally revered banh mi in favour of sliced bread and more imaginative fillings.

Tuk Tuk Thai Cuisine


There’s a new Thai spot in town, and it’s called Tuk Tuk. Tucked away just off Hoan Kiem Lake on Hang Hanh, the restaurant is currently working out its kinks with a soft opening, but the cozy, colourful space shows major promise.

A 12-year veteran of the Saigon scene, La Habana maintains its charming, Spanish-terrace-inspired premises in District 1. Any night of the week, just off the main drag of Hai Ba Trung and along Cao Ba Quat, you’ll hear live music floating from its cavernous entertainment area. On the Thursday night we visited, it was ballad night, and a regular band from the Philippines were filling the place.
