This is my first time step into this mall, interesting which is the mall is still brand new and the wonderful thing is the parking is free. Lol. As I thought this shopping mall would be a very nice place to shop but it turns out to be like another Mid Valley, but of course what interest me the most is there are alot of types of restaurant in this mall which other place do not have and there is one restaurant tat I first saw was the famous Japanese restaurant from Indonesia has landed here. It is Sushi Tei. Which my Indonesian friends always bring me to eat when I visit them at Medan or Jakarta. Will try next round.

But back here, was very hungry and was late in the afternoon. So was walking around and looking around on all the restaurant available. What makes me choose this 1 was it was Vietnamese food and it has been along time since I last eat a nice Vietnamese food and the staff there was very friendly when I was standing and browsing through on the menu, one of the guy which is not local, came out and introduce me all their signature item and that had attracted me to go in because of the guy.

But from the outlook itself I had already made my choice up already and just that wanna go see what are the other choices of food available in the mall since it is not big.

Surprisingly, it is a large franchise chain as it stated all the places that it had branches in the country. Open kitchen concept.

Their seating area also very comfortable and with a bit like bamboo on the wall which makes like a bit natural and jungle feel.lol~

It even had a website to visit for further detail of franchise opportunity and the company background itself.

A traditional type of Vietnamese food menu. Do not need many fancy pages only 2-4 pages. Done. Which they are always famous for their beef noodle. Signature I would say but damm, I cannot eat beef...*drooling because of praying. Not superstitious but a piece of advice from ppl around me.

When I saw this in the menu, thought of it was very unique 'Vietnam Coffee Milk & Ice'. So order included when it came, surprise me also, the coffee is like freshly brew and was like dripping inside as they pour the hot water from the top and drop. Very strong and nice coffee smell although I am not a fancy coffee drinker as it brings me the opposite effect(means sleepy). The ice they gave me was like the whole glass they put into the frozen area and brought it out I thought that they are giving me a beer mug but nope for me to pour over and the best is they help me to mix it and it taste perfectly nice. RM4.90 for this cute little thing.

As for traditional Vietnamese food which I never miss which is the entree, 'Summer Roll' or what I called it Vietnamese popiah..lol~ of course when you start to eat, you have to put alot of the thing in the sauce plate. It goes on very well, it gives me the feel like eating in one of the best restaurant when I was in Melb. RM3.55 for this.

Hrmmm.....here comes the main dish, a very traditional and signature of Vietnamese food or which I would say must try, the 'Vietnamese Noodle(brisket,tendon,and another 2 cow parts) which I claim to be the cow spare parts. If you love spare parts, you gonna love this food and in the menu, let you choose on which part of the beef you want. Some comes in a combo. Last time I usually take combo which means everything also have. hehe. The soup is just very nice and sweet full with the base of the beef soup that I am expecting. I did curi try to drink the soup abit and my friend finish the whole bowl. Yummy good as what was said.RM15.99

This is my dish as I cannot eat beef (damm disappointed) but then this looks good also. Comes with 2 popiah and chicken which is called 'Grilled Chicken & Fried Roll'. I did not start to eat the rice first but this time try to eat the chicken. When the first bite into my mouth, I was like...ermmm.....damm nice taste of the chicken, perfectly grilled and the enough taste on the chicken with its own seasoning. When tried on the popiah, took the whole thing into my mouth and spit it out again as it was too hot. hahah(tam sam-cantonese) but taste not bad. RM12.99 for mine. As total bill came into RM41.15 as I think the price is very reasonable.
The friendliness of the staff there had been very helpfull and the captain came by and ask us how is the food there as he wants to get some feed back as it is newly open. Of course my feed back was more than satisfying never got disappointed.. Will come and dine again by introducing more friends and blog food readers. ;)
