Short Talk:

I must honestly say, this Hanoi trip is the most fun I had in a long time.

But I'm home now.

The Most Honest Restaurant Menu Ever

Spotted at Restaurant Bobby Chinn in Hanoi.

Special thanks to pinkpau, the fine-dining connoisseur, for the recommendation!

DOOUUUU MARRRRRR (Vietnamese curse)

Hehe....

Unregistered

Aiyah. Diet or not, just eat only la. Life's too short =P

Unregistered

减肥餐。不过越南人都不太肥啊。。。

Unregistered

LOL.

Unregistered

Interesting.
It's nice to know that there's humour everywhere you go. I also noticed people saying stuff like "Thank God I live in Malaysia" etc, etc after seeing countries like Hanoi and so on.
Frankly speaking, having travelled around the world with family and with friends since young, I'd say Malaysia isn't really much different from alot of the countries like Vietnam, etc.
Perhaps only KL might rival some popular, more developed countries, but that's not even the whole KL, only parts of it. Most of it look really bad.
No offence. I just think its a virtue to be humble and many of the Malaysians I've met are downright snobbish about Malaysia and it's gleening plus points.
Many of the people in Malaysia actually could pass off as residents of places in lesser developed Asia as well, manner of speech, ettiquette, mindset, etc, etc.
I do have many Malaysian friends who say the same thing as well.

Unregistered

So, it'd be nice if Malaysians stopped looking down on other Asian countries, because it's disgusting for Asians to look down on other Asians.

Unregistered

KENNY!!! I THINK I SAW U LAST NIGHT AT LCCT AIRPORT. INSIDE THE PLANE.. U JUST SIT INFRONT OF ME.. N U BUSY READING VIETNAM'S DICTIONARY. HEHEHEH .. I GOT ALWAYS PEEP ON U.. COZ.. I THINK YOU ARE CUTE N FUNNY WOR.. >.

Unregistered

Maybe the menu is for certain people? =P

Unregistered

hahaha... I guess ppl will start to copy that soon :)

Unregistered

DY,
Why not have snobbish Malaysians who think their country is better than others?
It'll be a refreshing change from the majority who trash their country at every opportunity.
Happy 50th Birthday Malaysia!!

Unregistered

haha....nice warning for ppl on diet...save money too

Unregistered

wonder how "I'm on a diet" taste like and its FREE??HAHAHA!

Unregistered

like this street junker can dine in a restaurant too..!!! hahahaha so funny

Unregistered

Ahaha, good idea~!! maybe u will get a plain water if u order that..

Unregistered

tis is ur greatest trip....to hanoi....of course lah, u with the hottest babe bah....then the greatest things happen to u in the night right??? if u didnt do it, then u r not a man lah.....

Unregistered

Haha.. That's so cute! Haha.. So very honest! Can't believe somebody actually put that on. So personal! Oooh.. I have never been to Hanoi. Only Ho Chi Minh!

Unregistered

This is the menu for me leh!
Haha..
But wat if there is a price tag for "I am on diet"
ppl dare not go for diet d... haha

Unregistered

haha. Nice one. Thanks for sharing.

Unregistered

Ha...a menu with a sense of humour.
Don't see that too often.

Unregistered

Looking at the price of the dessert, I probably ran out of money after the main course too. Save face lah!

Unregistered

haha.. a restaurant with a sense of humor. pretty cool.

Unregistered

Bobby Chinn! Hey that's the guy that was featured on the travel channel a while ago. Even Anthony Bourdain talks good about him... Lil chef world out there...

Unregistered

I'm on diet?
Lol... what a cute dish.. ;)

Unregistered

I never been to hanoi but i been to Ho Chi Minh, Danag & Hoi An. I hope i'll go to Hanoi someday but i heard there's so much polution. Hey, you should go to Hoi An. Nice beach, friendly people, great food and nice view. But to go there, you have take domestic flight to danang airport and take cab to Hoi An. You'll love Hoi An.

Unregistered

wow.. a restaurant that actually prevents its customer from ordering food..

Unregistered

let's hear it for "I'm on a diet"....yay...

Unregistered

Bobbie Chinns restaurant... power chinn.. =p
"May I interest you in a dessert, sir?"
"I'm on a Diet"
"Yes, sir." *writes down*
lol

Unregistered

haha!

Unregistered

HAHA! I dine at the restaurent too when I was in Hanoi 2 months back. I like the way the words in the menu are presented.

Unregistered

creative menu....... puts your reading skills to test. Our restaurant owners over here need a sense of humour like Bobby. Not money minded all the tinme

Unregistered

WAHahaHaahaHA!!! "I'm on a diet"!! WaAhHAHaHaHaHaHA!!

hilarious.

bobby chinn, one of my faves on travel and living. next to anthony bourdain of course.

Unregistered

Unregistered

If you are on diet you don't have to pay cause you are not ordering anything unless you want chang your friend yamcha lah. A good way of advertising their restaurant.
