The Gourmet Corner - Hanoi
Hanoi is great for foodies, eating out is generally cheaper than other neighboring countries with a dash of french influence that makes a good culinary experience.
We spent a particular afternoon trying an upscale restaurant in Hanoi. Albeit kinda posh it only costs about $10-15 per person here on average. The Gourmet Corner, located in the top level of Hanoi Elegance Diamond hotel.
In front we're greeted with a menu & photos of the dishes, which is funny because they have a different menu inside the gourmet corner, one without any picts whatsoever just texts, not sure if they're all the same.
The hotel is quite nice, it costs just about $40 a night if I remember correctly. Coming back I think I'll try staying here, just to sample their breakfast buffet ^^

|With Fish eyes lens, even elevator ride can be fun :D|
They also have an outside eatery, you just have to walk past the kitchen corridor and ends up in the Terrace Bar. Not a good idea eating here in the day, due to the hot blistering sun in Vietnam.
|Nice spot for photo|
After baking a bit under the sun and appeasing our narcissus half, we went back greeted with the wonderful dishes.

|no umbrella ^^ not going all out with the 80's theme|
As I mention before, they have different menu inside, this are the photo for the 3 course set menu.
It only costs 13.50 dollars for the complete set menu,a great bargain for the quality they serve.
