Another outpost of the Ngon culinary empire, Nha Hang Ngon continues to lure the crowds in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City with its winning combination of street food–meets–chic colonial ambiance. Housed in a pair of mustard-yellow, red-roofed villas adjoined by a frangipani-filled outdoor terrace, the restaurant delivers outstanding dishes from a series of outdoor stations where you can watch your food being prepared. Regulars go for hot pot overflowing with giant crabs, paper-thin wontons stuffed with shrimp, and pho cuon, thick rice-noodle pancakes filled with herbs and grilled beef. Don’t miss a glass of che, a colorful, coconut-based dessert Hanoians are famous for.
