Cau Go Authentic Vietnamese Cuisine

That restaurant with the weirdest pathway to go up to the 5th floor. Not exactly weird but it looks like it's under renovation. There's no signboards either...

 But you'll love the view once you get up here.

 Cau Go Quencher (VND120k)

Don't bother with their cocktails though. This is plain sugar water...

 Deep Fried Tofu (VND100k)

 Coconut Salad (VND125k)

 Deep Fried Calamari (VND215k)

 Fried Beef with Lemongrass and Chilli (VND180k)

 Fish Stew (VND175k)

 Pork Ribs Stew with Eggplant (VND245k)

 Morning Glory (VND105k)

 To summarise it in a short paragraph, this place reminded me of Cuc Gach Quan in Ho Chi Minh City where it's slightly pricier but you get good food. These are all rice dishes and the ingredients used are definitely better grade ones. If I have to pick a favourite it would be the coconut salad which is something you can't find it unless you're in Indochine area. The calamari, tofu and morning glory is rather normal which you can get similar quality in Chinese restaurants. The stews are something differet which uses a lot of local herbs especially mint. All of us loved the food here, which is why the prices here are exceptionally high for Vietnam's standards. Also, a reason why you won't really spot locals and may be deemed as tourist trap. I did try other places with rice dishes but they did not do as well as Cau Go did. I have to admit, despite the high prices, it is still my favourite in Hanoi.

Do remember to make a reservation as this place is occassionally full.

Likes: Wonderful local selections, coconut salad is a must, try some local stews
Dislikes: Unfortunately good food comes with a high price, an exceptionally high price for the view too
