Real Vietnamese food in town, where? Restaurante Capitol
Restaurante Capitol, formerly known as Ho Chi Minh, was the first place in town welcoming proper Vietnamese food in year of the Dragon 1988.
Visit Restaurante Capitol from Monday thru Friday for lunch. It’s good value since they serve a four-course menu at a fixed price of 8,80 Euro (including drinks and desserts).
Both the Pho noodle soup (with beef) and fried spring rolls are the closest version from those that my Vietnamese Granny used to make. Good memories.
Stir-fried beef Ho-Fan (flat rice noodles) were also yummy; Bánh Xèo (Vietnamese crepes with shrimp and bacon); Pork ribs; Garlic chicken served on a hot iron plate.
And last, but not least: fried honey banana, please add a scoop of vanilla ice cream on the side. It is time to unfasten your belts!
No long lines or waiting to get in. Only real and friendly service, with no paper menus and no pencils.
