Uu Dam Chay
Welcoming you with a green garden and water stream that makes you go “oooh, damn!”, Uu Dam Chay is a cosy eatery located on Hang Bai street that connects the Old Quarter to the other districts in Hanoi. The place is very spacious, spanning multiple floors, and almost feels as if you’re dining in an art gallery. Uu Dam serves the vegetarian take of a wide variety of dishes ranging from southern to northern cuisine, including local favourites such as pho, bun cha and banh xeo. Every dish is vegan-friendly and the portions are so beautifully presented that you’ll feel a little guilty when you start to chew. There are even some Western options for you to choose from. Despite the fancy look, the dishes are extremely affordable.
