Bongsen is located at level 4 of Suria KLCC, a newly opened restaurant I guess. I decided to give Bongsen a try cus I was attracted by its claim as a restaurant with 'vietnamese and french flair'. But hei...where is the french element??? I was expecting some fusion food like maybe vietnamese french bread? (ooo...I'm just too imaginative)
Anyway, the food turns out to be quite good! Nice presentation too. And yeah...I love the cozy environment (as seen in the first picture).
A lovely picture depicting the paddy field in Vietnam.
Oh yes, I like rice! (P/s: Eat more rice meiyen, rice is good for you..hehe)
For drinks, we had 'Vietnamese Drip Coffee' (RM 8)--strong, aromatic with slighty smoky (or roasted) smell i think, definitely recommended for coffee lovers.Grool...grool...I'm so hungry...Ohh here comes the food!
We ordered 'Simple Pleasures' (RM 12 per person) as starters which turns out to be really good...yum yum! It came with 6 different types of appetizers, ie sugar cane prawns, vietnamese spring rolls, deep fried spring rolls, chicken meat balls, mushrooms wraps and some crisps.
The 'Grilled Lemongrass Chicken with Rice' (RM18) was really flavourful, served with a tiny bowl of stir-fried aubergines, some tossed carrots, salads and lime chilli sauce (this sauce is wicked!).
Here comes my healthy 'Five-Colour Rice' (RM 12) ^_^, rice served with loads of green veges, lotus seeds, crunchy peanuts and a bowl of clear clam soup--a vietnamese version of 'hakka lui cha'. Ahah...not recommended for meat lovers.
Overall, I'm quite pleased with the food, the service and the environment. Will come back for more vietnamese flairs.
The bill: RM 70 for 2 persons
LOCATION: Lot 416, Level 4, Suria KLCC.
