Saigon In­dian / #73 / 3824 5671 / is great for get­ting your dosa fix, or duck into cute al­ley­way Hem 71-73 to dis­cover an ar­ray of eater­ies: #71/2 Lac Thai / 3823 7506; char­mant Viet bistro An is at #71/5-6 / 3825 8275; or Middle East­ern at #71/7 Warda (see Rest./Re­laxed).

Now, turn right back onto Mac Thi Buoi for the teeny Phuc Long Chateau coffee kiosk at #63 / 3825 6288 / brew­ing good cheap lat­tes, plus freshly-ground beans to go.

Take a right down Phan Van Dat for con­tempo can­vasses at #17 Hanoi Stu­dio (see Art), and more café bites at lo­cal in­sti­tu­tion Black Cat at #13 / 3829 2055 / be­fore swing­ing back up onto Mac Thi Buoi for more rep­utable art­works at #50 Apri­cot Gallery (see Art).
