Sports utility vehicles, which shuttle embassy employees, are often parked outside of the posh Hanoi Gourmet. Run by a melting pot of foreigners, the deli serves a medley of international treats. Camembert cheese, foie gras and Norwegian smoked salmon will transport you into a European kitchen. If assemblage requires too much effort, select a sandwich or a salad from the brief menu. An international wine rack appeals to the thirst. Foreign gourmet comes at a price: the cost of a slice of imported cheese could equal a week's worth of Vietnamese pho (noodle soup). Call for timings before you visit the Hanoi Gourmet.
