Linguini Fini Hanoi

Hanoi’s first premium casual Italian restaurant rooted in New York culture. This means it’s not short of raw American passion with a distinct sense of style and attitude. But this is just on the surface. When you dig a little deeper, you’ll discover the essence of authentic Italian food. It’s fresh produce. It’s locally-sourced. And 100% home-made. Bringing to you homemade only pasta, signature 18″ New York style pizza and delicious Italian main dishes. Located in the trendy Tay Ho district on Xuan Dieu, the restaurant is spread over 3 floors with a brutalist concept architecture of glass and steel and yet furnished with Italian-Brooklyn style creating an ambience which is vibrant and exciting.

Hanoi – favourite wine bars- by the glass

p1010223z

By Darren Gall, Writer & Sommelier

Hanoi has always intrigued me, drawn me, a visually beautiful city with a certain charm and character, it smiles at you through the cracks and exhibits style and elegance even amidst occasional chaos and degradation.

Hanoi is also a city being transformed, being modernized and in certain quarters, taking on the signs of wealth and progress that are universal to cities around the world today, some signs good and some signs bad.

Yet, everywhere there is beauty in Hanoi, in the simplest scenes and in almost all of the unexpected places; all you have to do is pause to look and see for yourself…. read on http://www.urban-flavours.com/hanoi-by-the-glass/

“As I sit on the grass perched over the beach, staring out to sea, sated and listening to the vibes of the house blending in with the gentle roll of ocean onto sand, it occurs to me that if I turned to stone and sat here for a millennium or three, that would be perfectly alright with me. Frank’s marvelous, mystical kitchen has once again, saved my soul.” Read on…. http://www.urban-flavours.com/2015/03/soul-kitchen/

Tam Dao Bear Sanctuary – 14 bears – 10 bear bile farms – 4 days – 1 incredible rescue team

GREAT THINGS ARE HAPPENING IN VIETNAM

Vietnam Animal Asia Rescue Team CILEZVfWcAAhfkL

Nestled in the mountain jungles of Tam Dao national park is Animal Asia’s bear sanctuary. Here you can see the most beautiful Moon bears which are native to Vietnam. Each bear has a sad story tell, years and years kept in a tiny cage unable to move around, fed on gruel, and kept for bear bile extraction. Some bears are caged as cubs and never released, many are kept caged for up to 30 years. Most farmed bears are starved and dehydrated, and suffer from multiple diseases. Fortunately the Vietnamese government has outlawed bear farming and slowly the authorities are negotiating their release to Animal Asia’s sanctuary,

Animals Asia will begin the mass evacuation of captive bears from Vietnam’s Quang Ninh province – on Tuesday 23rd June, with at least 14 bears to be freed from the illegal bile trade.
The 14 moon bears are presently spread out over 10 farms in the region, which is home to World Heritage site Halong Bay. Animals Asia’s expects the rescue to continue for four days, concluding on Friday 26th.
Animals Asia’s Vietnam Director Tuan Bendixsen said:
“We’ve been working since 2007 to end bear bile farming in Halong Bay – pushing year after year to educate tourists against the use of bear bile and working with the local authorities to build a relationship. That has intensified since late last year when we started pushing hard for a remit to rescue these long-suffering animals. We are relieved that the first large scale transfer of bears can now finally take place.

Stand-up comedy in Hanoi

13TH May – STAND UP COMEDY

The House of Sơn Tinh continues to establish itself as the home of stand-up comedy in Hanoi. Next up, on WED 13TH MAY, is MARTIN MOR, a comic from Northern Ireland with a wit as sharp as the tips of his enormous moustache. Mor, a one-time circus performer, is certainly no stranger to the wild and raucous world of comedy — he’s spent nearly 25 years on stage, performing for everyone from the British Royal Family to a horde of Italian convicts.

Joining Mor on stage will be Thailand-based comic DELFIN SOLOMON who is inspired by Russell Peters, Chris Rock, Louis CK, and a bunch of other folk you’d be crazy not to like.

Further support will be provided by members of the blossoming HANOI COMEDY COLLECTIVE: on this occasion Jill Kester, Quang, Roddy Fraser & Magic Alex.

Tickets cost VND150K/person [on the door] and include a free glass of the award-winning Sơn Tinh liquor. [NOTE: In this summer heat we strongly recommend a glass of Sơn Tinh’s Apricot liquor on the rocks!]
