On the second day of CNY, we explored every corner of KL to hunt for good food. I had loads of Chinese food during family feasts so I need to have something foreign and lite to balance my yin n' yang.
Finally, we dropped by Chulan Square and walked thru the long building...Eden? too meaty. Bangkok Jazz? I'm done with spicy food in the afternoon. Rakuzen? it was not opened la. Chinese restaurant? I told you I had too much of 'em. Western grill? I'm getting heaty. With only one choice left, we settled for Vietnamese food @ Viet Passion.
What makes Viet Passion different from other vietnamese restaurants is its really extensive menu. I didn't manage to go thru the whole menu cus I have been flipping the menu for quite some time and it seems like never ending.
So I took this fresh prawn rolls (RM8) which is depicted on the 1st page of the menu. Char Siew Bao thought that these are the best prawn rolls ever but I find the odd tasting mint leaves and chives in the rolls rather unpleasant!
Next up is this delicious Vietnamese Crepe (RM18). It came with loads of beans sprouts and roasted chicken/ pork stuffed in a giant crunchy crepe. Now this is my best crepe ever.
I recalled that boo_licious recommended Viet Dry Noodles when I did my post on Bongsen. So this time round I ordered Dry noodles with Chilli and Lemongrass Chicken(RM 16). The chicken chunks tasted great but I wondered why the veges served by Vietnamese restaurants are always raw and uncooked. I thought this dish would taste perfect with cooked bean sprouts.
By the way, tekko from eatinout recommended rice with starfruits from Vietnamese Kitchen. Sounds interesting ^_^ would love to try this 'out of the ordinary' combination!
