After a long dusty day sightseeing, we headed back to our hotel - Villa Hue, a small hotel which offers practical training to the students from the Hue Tourism School. The hotel was really nice, very nicely decorated and the rooms were huge. It was a real bargain considering the price we paid. BUT (yes, there's always a but ;) the staff were a little slow in understanding what we wanted. I knew this before we got there and was determined to be patient, very patient but after a few hours, my patience wore thin. That aside, they did give us some vouchers for free cake when we checked in and we determined to use them.
I had the mango mousse cake. It does look a little sorry but it did taste rather good. Light sponge with two layers of mango mousse, one more intense than the other.
Jo's passion fruit mousse cake did look a lot better than mine and was constructed in much the same way. Two thin layers of light sponge with two layers of passion fruit mousse. I'm not a fan of passion fruit and was happy to stick to mine (we did taste test each others, of course :)
We also got cookies with our coffee. It's the little touches that count, isn't it? And this hotel has definitely got that bit right - glasses of ice water when we used the Internet in reception, little cookies with handwritten quotes (totally random ones) to wish us good night - very sweet.
