Summer days in Hanoi, I have to admit, are too hot for me to handle. That’s the reason why I hate going out of my house where my precious AC is. But I cannot stay inside all day and cut off any connection with the outside world and just rolling in my bed surfing the internet. Well, I can, but I’m trying my best not to be so anti-social.
For that reason I always look for places to hang out with my friends. For me, that place should have cool interior design, calming atmosphere, yummy food, and of course, reasonable prices. Although I am picky and have too high of a standard for a cafe/restaurant for youngsters, the newly opened District01 has totally stolen my heart.
The way leads to the restaurant makes you feel like going to a secret hideout! But inside, the place is enormous, it looks very calming and refreshing to me.
I am a sucker for places with large windows like this.
The restaurant does not only look great, but have tasty food and beverage as well. And the price is reasonable.
Yummm. I really shouldn’t have post this in the middle of the night like this :(
Oh and not to mention, they have a lovely golden retriever just for customers to play with. His name is Nino. He’s a really good boy, I can’t help but patting him every time I walk by. Don’t worry, the staffs always keep everything sanitary.
And for a shopaholic like me, the owner’s boutique – À Mon Avis, which situated right inside the restaurant – is the cherry on top. The shop is quite famous (long before the restaurant was born) and have very selective clothing.
You can see a thorough review of this place here at my dear friend’s food blog: http://freakyfoodies.wordpress.com/2013/07/11/district01/ I promise it’s a good one :)
If by any chance you come to Hanoi and visit this place, you might actually see me around playing with Nino, haha. Untill next time lovelies.
