Green Tangerine, Hanoi

48 Hang Be Street
Hoan Kiem District
Tel: 84 4 825 1286's insider take:

Customers who retreat from the retail hustle of Hang Be Street must feel they've stepped through some sort of Second Empire looking glass. The lengthy interior of this 1928 colonial house holds trompe l'oeil paintings, a motorcycle sidecar, wrought-iron café tables, and a central open-air atrium dripping with ivy. The French-with-a-twist menu brings an Asian edge to old-world recipes in dishes like salmon fillet in tamarind and red-wine sauce and a waffle with lemongrass and Provençal herbs. Not convinced? Try the green tea cheesecake, with a subtle jasmine perfume that complements the pistachio crust. The largely foreign clientele splits between expats and travelers.

Open daily 11 am to 11 pm.
