At the end of our three week Burmese adventure we left Yangon on an early morning flight to Bangkok where we stayed for one night before boarding another flight to Hanoi in Vietnam. Seeing as we were in three great culinary capitals of Asia we decided to make the most of it and indulge in the finest of Asian cuisine! So for readers of a culinary persuasion feast your eyes on this...
