Food Series # 117: Vietnamese Mountain Food
If you are looking for good food in Vietnam this is the restaurant you must pay a visit to. However, I was not satisfied with the service and the staff here., Now I'm going to review a restaurant that offers mountain specialties. The restaurant is located at 8 Hoang Ngan street - Hanoi city, this restaurant is called '' độc quán'' - (Strange restauant)The restaurant's facebook has many pictures of food, looking very beautiful, delicious and attractive. I decided to come here. Because this restaurant had so many menus, I was able to eat a variety of foods in this restaurant.


We were asked to find a table and then order at the table 
When our grilled chicken honey  arrived, our expectations continued to be exceeded. The skin was crisp, the meat chicken was tender and the honey flavor blended I was pleasantly surprised by this famous chicken which was the first I’ve ever tasted with a smokey flavour yet chicken was not burnt.
The food was full of flavour and very filling, the food was always tasty and fresh.
This is a "mầm đá" vegetable, I can't find an English translation of this vegetable. This vegetable has been dipped with fish sauce and boiled eggs.

we have ordered:
- mầm đá vegetable

The food was sublime and the accompanying sides enhanced the flavour ,definitely a return visit :D

#### There are a few things I didn't like about '' Độc quán''
- Service was very very slow..
- The food was delicious but the food was too expensive ( not cheap by local standards), $ 10 for a few fish, $ 4 for a plate of vegetables, ... . Vietnamese vegetables are too cheap, if I stay at the market I lose 0.5 dollars for this food. Well  after all of this and alcohol , we paid $ 120,
- We lost $ 7 on alcohol, even though we took the wine in our home, we didn't drink in the restaurant menu.
