Half Man Half Noodle Bar, Hanoi, Viet Nam

(Click to enlarge)

I think if you ran into this, it would be what you might call a “drop yer bacon sarnie moment”. I’ll let our correspondent Norman J explain all:

Did you know HMHB have an international following reaching as far as Viet Nam?

I was there recently and whilst walking the back streets of Hanoi I heard what I thought was Sealclubbing. I couldn’t really believe my ears, I continued walking toward the music and stumbled across a bar called The Half Man Half Noodle, I was astounded! Please see picture above.

Apparently the Australian owner is a big fan, has all the albums and plays them in the bar all the time. Unfortunately he wasn’t there and the bar staff spoke little English, enough however to understand requests (or at least hand over the CD collection). Needless to say I had a great night if not a bit surreal.

So, the next time you are in Hanoi check it out!

All reviews welcome. And if anyone connected with the bar wants to get in touch, please feel free!
