By the tracks

Ray Quan, or Railway Restaurant, is situated right next to the railway line connecting Hanoi and HCMC. Opened on 2 October, 1936, the 1,730-km French-built railway line carries thousands of passengers each day on the five trains departing from Hanoi and five departing from HCMC. One thing to remember is that the last train departs at 9.30pm, so be sure visit at the right time.

The tiny two-storey restaurant has a funky décor of brick walls, granite staircases, and bottle-light ceilings and serves popular Vietnamese dishes such as boiled pig’s intestines, Vietnamese style sausage, smoked goose breast, boiled chicken, and roasted duck at reasonable prices.

Open for almost five years, Ray Quan is a popular destination for hip-young locals as well as tourists and expats in Hanoi.
