Green Mango, Old Quarter, Hanoi, Vietnam

Elude the bedlam of the Old Quarter in Hanoi and make your way to the elegant setting of Green Mango. Watch the crowd go by in the front room with floor to ceiling glass windows, take a seat at the bar or find some peace in the garden out back. This restaurant goes above and beyond what you would expect of any establishment. Convicted to live with the unruliness of Hanoi and still do their best, they served us happily through three hours of blackout by lighting candles and keeping their menu running with what could be made on the gas stove top. Despite having to overcome a seemingly unending disruption of power they still managed to serve up some delicious western dishes and perfectly chilled wine. Happy hours are from 4 – 6pm where you can get a reasonable wine served at the right temperature in a two for one deal. Both Italian and local cuisine are on the menu. Risotto, gnocchi and salads were all delectable. Worth a special mention though is the scrumptious passionfruit dressing on their garden salad. I’ll be back.
