My love affair with Vietnamese cuisine is not too old and ever since I have tasted it, I look forward to having it every now and then. The usage of herbs, sauces along with the specially cut vegetables or marinated meats creates a unique taste and experience. Just for the reason I’ve visited Hanoi at Phoenix Market City a few times which is fairly close to home. The food there is gorgeous and because it is owned by a couple where the wife hails from Vietnam, it is the real deal. I love the hand painted props and paintings adorning the walls and accentuating the Vietnamese appeal in the ambiance. The food is authentic and served nicely plated by a courteous staff. This time I was here for a bloggers table and got to taste a wide variety of their menu. Sharing a few pictures from the menu which was served to us.
Chopstick holders on each table are imported from Vietnam and are hand painted by the local artists.

Tapioca crackers are served immediately as you make yourself comfortable and were very similar to the rice papads that we have and they were served with a delicious peanut sauce and a soy based sauce on the side.
Hanoi also serves Foster beer and it is a very happy place to hang out with friends and family munching on some goof food along with a few drinks.
