When the taxi reached Hoa's road we hardly recognized the spot as the seafood restaurants have disappeared, lost to the developers. Hoa's old building is gone but he has built a new place right across the road. It has the same bar, the same beat to hell and back tables, the same lousy lend/ lease library and of course the same Hoa. When we got out of the cab Hoa was already heading towards us to take our bags and to put a cold one in our road weary fists. It's like coming back home.
Hoa's wife Giao still runs the back of the house. Same menu and the same family style dinner every evening at 7 PM. Rooms are in 2 hotels at the top of the road. Hoa is starting to build rooms next to his restaurant. We booked a room for 3 with bathroom, hot water and A/C for $12 per night. Very clean place with a friendly staff. Great starting point for early morning hikes up Marble Mountain.
Hoa looks good. It had been 3 years since we had last been here and 6 years since we first visited. Met a whole lot of good
people at Hoa's over the years. Danish Green Bay Packer fans, book sellers and teachers and crazy French women and too many surfers to count. The beach is still there and the surf is still formidable.
If you've been wondering what happened to Hoa's the answer is; Nothing.
