“Depchai” draws attention with its green exterior and red signboard. You can enjoy dishes made based on local recipes by a chef from Hanoi, Vietnam. The signature menu, “Hanoi rice noodles,” is characterized by using fresh noodles picked directly from the store every day. The rich broth that has been simmered for 24 hours and the chewy yet soft noodles go in harmony. You can sprinkle lime juice on rice noodles and eat them with minced garlic and red pepper according to your preferences. The “honbap set,” which is sold only to single customers, is very popular because you can find the ingredients of rice noodles and nem (zajo) at a reasonable price. If you order the menu according to the number of people, you can get one refill of noodles.

“Rehoy” is such a popular place that there are long waiting lines every time it's time to eat. The interior of the store is decorated with colorful lighting to recreate the local feel of Vietnam. The signature menu is the “Banmi Sandwich,” which is a baguette made from rice, split in half and contains the main ingredient, soft-boiled fried egg, and plenty of vegetables. The contrasting texture of freshly baked baguette, which is crispy on the outside and moist on the inside, is impressive. The rich texture and flavor of the savory baguette combined with various ingredients and sauces is appealing. Note that you can choose pork or shrimp as the main ingredient in the sandwich to suit your taste.

I especially like direct-cooked rice noodles. NEM is delicious and a variety of other foods are also worth eating.
