“May is an amazing cook. My friend and I ordered a random selection of dishes off the menu, and they were all surprising and delicious and absolutely fresh. Highly recommended. The best place we ate in Hanoi”
“Simple, delicious, inexpensive, healthy vegan food prepared by a lovely lady. I’ve lived in Hanoi for a year and go here at least twice a week. It says expensive on the listing above but its inexpensive.
Thuy (Twee) is alone in the kitchen so if you want to go try and call about an hour before – 04 6258 1622 – 0912 143 647.”
We went here for our first meal in Hanoi and were exceptionally pleased. We have lived in San Francisco, New York, and Singapore, so are used to a lot of good food, but May Trang blew us off.
First, as other reviewers noted, the food takes a while to come. We were actually very happy about this fact because it means that they were preparing everything from scratch, rather than mixing pre-cooked ingredients or just warming up pre-cooked food, as is very common in Singapore, China, India, and elsewhere.
The meal started with delicious wheat gluten cooked with lemongrass and chili, followed by excellent fried mushroom. The batter was perfectly crisp but yet the dish was not oily. We then finished off with a soup and a slow cooked grilled eggplant, both delicious. The eggplant was particularly tender and smoky – in our experience, most restaurants end up frying the eggplant instead of grilling it, which ends up killing all natural flavors.
We’ll definitely go here again. Highly recommended.”
