Lac Thien Restaurant, Hue, Vietnam

6 Dinh Tien Hoang Street
Tel: 84 5 452 7348's insider take:

Neither the Tet Offensive nor decades of anticapitalist rule could close this simple shopfront eatery outside the Citadel's southeastern Ngan Gate. Since 1965, owner Le Van Trung's family has served banh khoai and other Hue delicacies at nontourist prices. Aside from the tiled floor, the decor is zero frills: plastic chairs, utilitarian tables, a few calendars and clocks on the plastered walls. But nothing on the large menu costs more than 25,000 Vietnamese dong (about $1.50). Coffee will set you back all of 25 cents, making Lac Thien ideal for breakfast before a sightseeing assault on the Citadel, just across the moat. The restaurant is flanked by a pair of similar cafés, Lac Thanh and Lac Tung, both run by other family members.

Open daily 8 am to 11 pm.
