This tiny restaurant is well named, as I felt as though I was eating in someone’s home dining room, and I was! Several generations of the host family were sometimes watching TV in an adjacent room while I was eating, and I enjoyed the family atmosphere. They smiled at me but kept to themselves, so were not an intrusion. I ate here all 3 days that I was in Hue because the food and prices were so enticing that I couldn’t see any point in patronizing anywhere else. It seemed that I was eating authentically prepared Vietnamese food, and this was something I was keen to experience. I had the stir-fried beef with peppers and sesame seeds, and it was among my favourite meals in Southeast Asia. The shrimp spring rolls were also great, as was the shakshouka breakfast. It can take a little patience to get your food, because everything is made fresh to order. This place is located in a busy alley, and is easy to find, and well worth the effort. I’d asked the travel agent down the street to recommend a place to eat nearby, and this was her suggestion. The service was always friendly, and I felt that this was a good occasion to leave a sizeable tip, even though this is not common or expected in Southeast Asia. I found that this was very much appreciated.
