Hanoi Old Quarter: Chicken Wings and Banh Cuon

Hanoi Old Quarter is one of the many Vietnamese restaurants that dot Victoria Drive. The sister restaurant to Mr Red Cafe, Hanoi Old Quarter similarly focusses on northern Vietnamese cuisine.

I dropped by in late November to pick up an order of Bánh Cuốn Nhân Thịt, Ruốc ($12) and Cánh Gà Chiên Tẩm Bột ($11). I found that the banh cuon (steam rice rolls with meat and shrimp filling) was not as thin as the ones from nearby Viet Mama Cafe but were still pretty light and tasty. I really liked the texture of the deep-fried chicken wings which were both super crispy on the outside and juicy and tender on the inside. Flavourwise, however, the wings didn’t have much oomph to them.
