Young woman preparing lunch at a storefront restaurant along the Van Mieu (Temple of Literature) street, near the Population Council.

Ha Noi abounds in public eating places, ranging from elegant formal restaurants to places to squat on the sidewalk and slurp down a bowl of Pho. This place, run by a family of very jolly and energetic women, is several steps up from the sidewalk but is operated in a similar spirit.
