restaurant with view on the train track - vietnam

Restaurant with view on the train track (Hanoi, Vietnam)

Hưng Lâu (this is the restaurant name) - Lẩu sườn đặc biệt (special ribs soup)

This is the Hanoi-Saigon train line.­

There are only a few trains running every day on this track (and they run slowly on this section), so most of the times, the track is used as if it was a regular street.­ This means that you'll find shops, farmers markets etc along the track.­
