The restaurant is first-class all around -- from its elegant atmosphere and exceptional service to its extensive wine list. That it caters to vegetarians and others with dietary restrictions without compromising the quality gives it a high rank in my book. The food is beautifully presented and, if you can stand the heat, quite delicious. Both the dishes I ordered (pictured below) were very spicy.
|Crispy radish cakes made with wild mushrooms and peanuts and served with a mushroom-soy dipping sauce|
|Fried tofu salad with mixed greens and fresh cilantro, spearmint leaves, red onion, and red pepper|
TIP: Doi Moi does not accept reservations after 6pm, so go early or plan to wait for a table, especially on weekends.
