Black Bean Soup, Nem Cuốn Tôm

Today I enjoyed lunch with an old, close friend who left Hanoi over a year ago to study abroad in Brussels. The location of choice was naturally Lá, but I had actually originally suggested that we go to OCHÂO Tea House, which I found out yesterday has closed down for good. This makes me so sad, as the tea house had one of the most incredible views of West Lake and it was one of my sanctuaries in hustling and bustling Hanoi. I can’t remember a time I’ve been this upset over a business closing, but that seems to be the nature of things these days in the city.
