Oven-Baked Grouper in Clam Broth, Fava Beans, Carrot Flakes, Spring Onion-Fennel Salad

Tonight I spent the better part of 4 and a half hours eating, drinking—something I do probably less than several times a year—and talking to friends out at Angelina. After nine the music became super-chill and super-loud (this is a very good thing) and it was all I could do not to fall asleep in my couch.

There are some restaurants in the city that I’d call my favorite in terms of food alone but I honestly cannot think of another spot in Hanoi that has it all like Angelina does. The food is excellent, the atmosphere is incredible, and I always leave wanting more of everything the restaurant has to offer. Awesome night.
