Keegan and I discovered this vegetarian buffet at a Buddhist restaurant near Hanoi train station before our train to Da Nang.

Cat Ba Crab

Cat Ba Crab

One of the more exotic things on our Cat Ba cruise. These were stuffed with shrimp and rice. Some of our fellow travelers weren't keen on the accusing eyes.

Challenging Shrimp

Challenging Shrimp

You had to work pretty hard to get the meat and avoid the shell of these. In Da Nang.

Cobb Salad

Cobb Salad

Sometimes, you just need some fresh veggies. We went to a nice upscale restaurant in downtown Da Nang, and John gave in to this western lure.

Steak in the sky bar

Steak in the sky bar

On our last night in Da Nang, we sought out a recommended roof top steak house from which to see the dragon show. The dinner was good (though Keegan's steak was too fatty and had to be sent back), but the musical act featured a shrill, smarmy female singer from the Phillipines butchering rock classics at far too loud a volume.

Udon Production

Our Hoi An food tour guide, Harry, explaining how these beautiful Udon noodles are made.

Sprouting Beans

Delicious Duck

We splurged on dinner at Sokkhak River Lounge in Siem Reap. A highly rated place (which had Cambodian and French dishes, and red wine), which deserved its ratings.

Nuts with that

Nuts with that

Our hotel bar at Laguna Beach Resort in Kho Lanta had very limited food choices during low season, but served these complimentary peanuts with curry spice, basil and mint that we just loved.

"Half rack"

"Half rack"

One night in Kho Lanta, we went to a very cool place (Where Else) sat down and looked at the menu, and realized that 3/4 of us wanted burgers. The place was deserted, so we had appetizers and then headed for the best burgers on the island at the Koala Bar. Laura, the 4th of us, went for a 1/2 rack of the ribs. Apparently Aussie portions are bigger than even American.

Tiramisu Martini

Tiramisu Martini

A very very tasty "dessert" martini, served at the elegant Mozzarella restaurant in Kuta, Bali, Indonesia.

Branded Bintang

Branded Bintang

The beach bars in Kuta serve the same beer - Bintang, including the excellent lemon and organge Radlers - but brand it with their own cozies. We liked the retro sentiment of this one.

Kuta is very tailored to the Aussie tourists, and apparently this is a favorite breakfast dish.
