Diners sample Hue food in the relaxing atmosphere of Mi Tau Restaurant in HCMC’s District 1 A smal restaurant in HCMC renders the original cuisine and atmosphere of the ancient central imperial city of Hue.
Located on a cul–de–sac off of bustling Cach Mang Thang Tam Street, Mi Tau Restaurant is a real native spot for central folks missing home. The restaurant’s name is inspired by the colloquial identification of “you” and “I” that Hue locals on friendly terms tend to call each other by.
The architecture of Mi Tau Restaurant is supplemented by antique furniture, which creates a warm and sensual atmosphere for diners to relive the romance of the ancient capital. Elegant decorations in soothing colors and pictures depicting the old capital’s landscape adorn the walls. In the corner, wooden shelves full of books and magazines hide away patrons who want to retreat from the crowd for an intimate chat.
The restaurant is also decorated by original works portraying a piano, a viola and a map of Vietnam made from various kinds of butterfly wings.
In addition to the tasteful setting, Mi Tau’s cuisine is really the draw for patrons. Preserving the unique elements of Hue cuisine is the restaurant’s forte. Gastronomic specialties such as Hue’s beef noodle soup, banh beo (thinly sliced flour cake with shrimp toppings), com vua – hoang hau (king and queen rice) will please the most discerning central gourmet.
Traditional dishes like ruoc tom chua (sour salted shredded shrimp and meat), khoai lang duong ngoc (sweet potato) and fish sauce will hark diners back to sweet childhood memories of tantalizing homemade meals. The dessert choices include some delightful offerings like dua dong suong (cold coconut jelly) and other sweet cakes.
Last but not least, the reasonable prices suit all pockets. With dishes ranging from VND20,000-80,000 (US$1.20-4.80), Mi Tau Restaurant is a hole-in-the-wall spot not to be missed.
