Morning Glory Restaurant - Hoi An, Vietnam


Morning Glory Restaurant

Untuk malam pembuka di Hoi An, kita mencoba resto Morning Glory.
Pilihan jatuh ke resto ini karena di pamfletnya tertulis selain untuk restoran, tempat ini juga merangkap tempat untuk belajar memasak makanan Vietnam.
Resto yang cukup PD untuk membuka kelas masak tentunya rasa masakannya cukup enak. Ditambah lagi saat itu ada cukup banyak orang mengantri untuk masuk.


On our first night in ancient city Hoi An, we tried the Morning Glory restaurant. Considering the place was also doubles as a cooking class for those who wants to learn making traditional Vietnamese Dish. We figured since it also teaches cooking, the food would have to taste good.

Rancangan tempatnya cukup unik, setelah masuk di pintu seperti foto di atas, kita bisa langsung melihat dapur mereka yang terletak tepat di tengah restoran. Unik sekali karena proses olah masakannya bisa dilihat langsung oleh para tamu restoran di lantai satu, sembari menikmati hidangan.
Restorannya sendiri dalam kondisi terbuka dan tidak menggunakan air conditioner, berhubung saya di lantai dua tidak bisa menilai apakah adanya dapur di tengah resto ini tidak menjadikan suasananya panas sekali.


The design of the place is pretty unique, once you enter the front door in the above photo, we can immediately see their kitchen which is placed right in front of their restaurant dining area. Patrons of the place can enjoy their meal while also feast their eyes on the cooking process.
Since I was dining in their second floor, I don't know if

Morning Glory - Fish to taste right, must swim three times in water, butter and wine.


Resto ini di desain terbuka dan hanya mengandalkan pertukaran udara alami dibantu kipas angin. Walaupun tanpa air conditioner, udaranya tidak terlalu panas, jadi bisa menikmati makanan dengan nyaman. 
Sama halnya dengan beberapa tempat di Ubud, Bali, kadang rancangan bangunan resto di tempat wisata agak ala kadar.
Foto di atas, tepat di bawah lantai kayu ini, terdapat dapur terbuka tadi, tanpa adanya saluran udara khusus. Jadi rutin setiap hari balok kayu dan lantainya terpapar panas dari dapur di bawah.
Moga-moga beberapa tahun lagi kalau berkunjung lagi ke sini bangunannya masih bertahan hehehe.


The restaurant is designed with natural airflow for cooling the building, with only using fan to aid it. This is a big plus for me since it's quite environmentally friendly without making the guest feels discomfort.
On the other hand, was a bit baffled looking at the open kitchen that didn't have any additional airways to dissipate the heat from the beam and second story floor.
Just hoping that the next few years when I come back to Hoi An, the place will still hold together hehe..

Mengikuti kebiasaan resto barat, di sini disediakan roti untuk mengganjal perut selama menunggu hidangannya tiba.

A nice extra touch for a Vietnamese restaurant, taking example from their western counterpart, complimentary bread is served for the guest here.

Rasa makanannya enak, kuahnya lezat tapi tetap ringan, tidak seperti kuah ramen yang berminyak dan terasa berat, mie Cao Lau ini cocok dengan selera saya.
Sehari sebelumnya teman seperjalanan saya memesan menu satu ini di hotel, bisa dilihat di link berikut untuk perbandingan : http://www.foodgrapher.com/2012/12/hoi-sunshine-hotel-review.html



The food tastes great, this Cao Lau was what I ordered. It tastes light but delicious, unlike ramen which broth is so thick and heavy, this one is just right for my taste.

A day earlier my friend ordered one in the hotel we stayed, here's the link of the post : http://www.foodgrapher.com/2012/12/hoi-sunshine-hotel-review.html
