Aside from Hanoi’s rustic simplicity, another thing that I loved about it was it’s amazing coffee scene. There were so many places to try, yet so little time. One of my my favorites was @xofacafe (Recommended by @coffeecrawlerph), where I ordered Bac Xiu (Coffee with coconut milk and condensed milk) and some crepes. .
PS: They are open 24/7! ☕️
If you're following me here on IG, you'll know that I'm a fan of banh mi. So getting an invite at the opening of the newest branch of @banhmikitchen got me super excited. I love its industrial vibe with gray walls, and on the other side, brown tables with greeny stuff for a more hipster and millennial feel. P.S. Their lemongrass banh mi is still the best for me. Their Viet Iced Coffee is good too! Thanks BMKN! 🤗 #BanhMiTheNorth#BMKN#thetravellingtongue
I've always liked Fat Daddy's ribs and burgers. I was a regular when it's still near my work place around Burgos Circle BGC. Now they're opening their newest branch at @iloveuptowncenter! Congratulations @fatdaddyssmokehouse! @whattoeatph @itsgonnabmay 🤗 #thetravellingtongue
At the center of the Perfume Pagoda, a vast complex of buddhist temples built on the Huong Tich mountains, is the Perfume Temple also known as Chua Trong. It took a 2-hour bus ride, an hour boat ride, a few minutes of hiking and a cable car ride to see this beauty.
Getting my Bun Cha fix at this famous restaurant where former US President Barack Obama and chef Anthony Bourdain dined together last 2016. (Their photos are posted on the walls) Look at what I got on ➡️ @whatmakespatfat 🐷
“Personally, I think Merry Moo's Sea Salt Caramel ice cream is one of the best ice creams in the metro. I also love their Earl Grey and Horlicks flavors. Last week, I was able to try their White Chocolate Green Tea and it was good too!!! The flavor was so strong that all green tea lovers will love. Thank you @merrymooicecream! 💚 #thetravellingtongue ”- @thetravellingtongue
The streets around Hoan Kiem lake get closed during weekends so that locals and visitors can enjoy the space around the lake. Had fun with all the street food and entertaining activities last Sunday, which includes watching street performers such as this man. 🙌🏻
Walked around the streets of Hanoi today without any mobile data and with no particular destination in mind. A little scary, but it was a great way to have started Day 1 here! ❤️ #EverydayHanoi#Hanoi#Vietnam
There are just so many interesting coffee shops and tea places in Chiang Mai that visiting them all would take me months! 😅 I’m just happy that I stumbled upon Kalapela Tea Room while walking around. Once you enter, you’ll be greeted by a sleek and sophisticated milieu. A tip tho — Go straight at the back and outside is a garden-inspired setting with wooden chairs and tables, bright and airy ambiance, perfect for a downtime while sipping your afternoon tea. 🌿♥️
