19:45 hilton opera house
20:04dinner at Com Viet restaurant
It is north of Hilton opera Hanoi, south of water puppet.
A fine dinning restaurant with lots of seafood selection.
Not too expensive for veggie choices, around US$5 to 7 total
With live music performance
I ordered a morning glory, fried sweet potato leaves, tofu, and a seven up.
The food was pretty good, but too much for 1 person (the waitress didn't stop me, instead she encouraged me to order more).
I ended up paying 111000D, i.e. around US$6. The food I ordered were good for 3 people
