The lunch time food was a delight. You will be surrounded by photos taken by Mr Cu - some of his endeavour to bring sport (football) within the grasp of all in Vietnam. An honourable man, based in a great and friendly cafe/restaurant

Yummy food and juices, and we each got a free postcard, taken by Mr Cu himself (cafe owner and photographer) and who also greeted us at the front entry. Great for re-fuelling before some more exploring.
