The owner - Mr. Cu is a very talented, self-taught photographer who's iconic pictures of Vietnam deck the walls of his restaurant and are available in printouts of various sizes, including post cards. Some of the photos are so deftly composed it's hard to believe they are all candids, taken without any direction from the photographer. The cafe itself is beautiful, if a bit touristy, but it attracts the crowds simply because its that good.

Lac Thien, Lac Thanh, and Lac Thuan. All three are run by members of the same extended family, most of whom are deaf. The charismatic leader of the pack is Trung, one of the most happy-go-lucky guys you'll ever meet, and one of the most gregarious, especially considering he can't really speak. It's surprisingly easy to communicate with him, and the others, using hand gestures. Trung makes bottle openers out of a stick of wood and a bolt which he hands out to guests for free. They then take them all over the world and send back photos of themselves with the bottle opener -- in front of the Taj Mahal, the Eiffel Tour, the Grand Canyon, etc. The whole procedure is as absurd as it is heart-warming, and it seems to bring Trung endless delight. Participation in the scheme is highly recommended. And the food -- amazingly good local specialties. Just start at the top of the menu and work your way down.
