The first restaurant to debut under Viet Deli’s umbrella, HOME Hanoi, that opened its doors in 2015 at 34 Chau Long Street, has relocated to 75 Nguyen Dinh Chieu Street.
HOME Hanoi reopened on January 9 this year in a grand four-story French villa, situated down a quaint lane that gives way to a private courtyard strung with lanterns. Catering for up to 120 diners, the meticulously maintained villa’s interior is defined by brickwork, timber beams and Vietnamese art.
Meanwhile, HOME Hoi An reopened on February 2 this year at 14 La Hoi Street in Hoi An’s Ancient Town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site on Vietnam’s central coast, after first opening in 2016 at 112 Nguyen Thai Hoc. Near many of the town’s famed attractions including its street markets and Thu Bon River, HOME Hoi An’s new home is a villa bathed in a distinctive golden-hue, like most of the Ancient Town. The restaurant caters to 120 diners, with a 19thcentury-themed interior adorned with lanterns, vintage photography of Hoi An and more.
“Our new HOME restaurants in Hanoi and Hoi An continue to create a charming atmosphere where diners feel we are welcoming them into a friendly family home, offering authentic local dishes to be shared between family and friends, albeit in even more exquisite homes now that are both more spacious and in better locations,” Viet Deli founder and chairman Nguyen Cao Son said.
HOME Hanoi’s signature dishes include ‘Phở cuốn Hà Thành’ (Hanoian ‘phở’ noodles with beef spring rolls), ‘Bún chả phố cổ’ (Hanoian grilled pork with rice noodle), and ‘Vịt nướng riềng sả’ (traditional char-grilled duck). ‘Bánh ướt cuốn thịt nướng’ (steamed Hoi An rice paper with carameliszed pork rolls), ‘Tôm sú xào rau tập tàng’ (stir-fried prawns with local vegetable), and ‘Cao lầu bá lễ’ (traditional Hoi An noodles with Char-siu pork) are among HOME Hoi An’s popular dishes.
Viet Deli’s restaurant Ngon Gallery Nha Trang is dedicated to lobster with live cooking stations that serve up Vietnamese, Japanese, Korean, Western and Chinese fare.
