Temple

Rating: Not Recommended, Tourist Trap
評等:不推薦,宰觀光客的

Address: 5 Chu Van An, Hue, Viet Nam

By stepping into this restaurant, you are announcing that you are a stupid loaded tourist and do not care about getting to know local dishes.

進這間餐廳,你等於宣佈你是個不想了解地方菜的暴發戶。

I visited this restaurant because of the recommendation of the following guide. This marks the beginning of my dissatisfation of this darn book:
More about 越南
我會到這家餐廳是因為上面那本破書的推薦。這是我對那本書不滿的開始。

The service of this restaurant is ok. The food is decent, but the value is very poor. Lousy environment. The staff lies.

服務一般。菜還行,但是投資報酬率超低。環境極差。店員說謊。

Credit Cards: Before I went into the restuarant, I asked their staff if they would accept credit cards. After the meal, they told me they could not accept credit card payments due to the black out. My rear end. They could still get the authorization by phone. In addition, they also told me AFTER the meal that even if they could take credit card payments, they would add 3% charge.

信用卡:在我進去之前就問過能不能用信用卡。等吃完飯後,他們才告訴我不行。說是因為停電。騙肖爺!停電照樣可以通過電話認證啊!還說就算能用,也要多收三趴。

Environment: After I sat down, I could not ignore this freaking noisy group of Francophone tourists. Not only did they talk loud, some of them them were banging their chop sticks on bowls and plates. In this part of world, this is the second worst thing you could do on a dining table. This signifies that you are a starving beggar begging for food. The worst is sticking chop sticks in your rice, virtically. This signifies that bowl of rice is offered to dead people. Although this is not the fault of the restaurant, you can avoid this situation going some where else.

In Vietnam, many western small potatoes are overwhelmed by the bang of their buck here, and reveal their true selves.

One of the best thing in Vietnam is the people. I enjoy returing their smile, showering by their friendiness, soaking in their warm kindness, and resonating with their vibes. All these are missing in this kind of "fancy" restaurants. They ditinguish themselves by being snobish. They serve nothing but as tourist traps!

環境:坐下來後,就發現有堆說法語的觀光客。大聲喧譁也就算了,還有人拿筷子敲碗盤。雖然這不是餐廳的錯,但是你要去像樣的地方就不會碰上這種事。

在越南,有很多西方觀光客被他們的幣值沖昏了頭,完全展現他們小人物的暴發戶性格。

越南最好的景點其實是人。他們很友善、好相處。我很喜歡被小販親切的微笑感染。而這種地方為了裝高級,反而顯得冷漠。

Food: Though their food is decent, however, I can get other dishes somewhere else at a quater of their price at better quality and quantity, except for the crab soup. This meal costed me about VND 200,000.

菜餚:廚藝還可以,但是投資報酬率太低。除了螃蟹湯之外,其他的菜我在別的地方用四分之一的價錢吃到更好的。這頓飯花了我大約二十萬盾。

Pho Bo/Beef Noodle Soup, available at almost every street corner at less than VND 20,000. If you would like to sample this dish in Hue, Pho Sai Gon is an excellent alternative.

牛肉河粉。路邊一碗不到兩萬盾。如果您想在順化品嚐這道菜,可以去西貢河粉

Banh Khoai. Hanh does it better and much cheaper.

Banh Khoai. Hanh做得更好吃,更便宜。

Nem Lui: Hanh does it better and much cheaper.

Nem Lui: Hanh做得更好吃,更便宜。

Banh Beo: Go to Cung An Dinh. The good thing I can say about Temple is the lemon water for washing hands.

Banh Beo: 去Cung An Dinh。要我讚Temple的話,我會說那碗洗手用的檸檬水不錯用。






Crab Soup: Not included in the set menu I ordered. This is the only dish worth trying in this restaurant.

螃蟹湯:我在套餐外加點的。是這家店唯一值得一試的菜。
