Al Fresco's is the place to go when you're starving hungry and in need of comfort food, as they'll serve you enormous portions of ribs, steak, burgers, or a variety of Mexican dishes. It's part of a restaurant chain that includes Jaspa's and Pepperoni's, and there are several locations in Hanoi, of which this is probably the most convenient. The atmosphere is very cozy, with checkered tablecloths and familiar songs playing in the background, and service is swift and efficient. Wash your meal down with an inexpensive Australian or South American wine, and if you have any room left, go for the chocolate mud pudding or apple crumble for dessert.
