I bumped into lyrical lemongrass at Bangsar Village last Friday during lunch time and greeted her with a cheery hello. Hey, she still recognise me as xiu long bao :) Didn't chat too long wiv her as I needed to rush back to the office. Oh no...I'm going to be late...again ;p
No regrets as I had a pretty good lunch @ Du Viet.
We had some communication probs when placing orders with the waiter, who has strong vietnamese accent. The set lunches (RM12.90) are quite affordable, each set comes with noodles/rice and a salad.
I had the Friday's set lunch--Vietnamese Noodles Salad with another serving of salad as appetizer.
Pour the sauce (taste like plum/ sweet chilli sauce) into the noodles.
I luv this noodles salad which tasted so much better than the one I had in Viet Passion at Chulan Square. I did mention before that I hate raw veges but to my surprise, I finished off the last strand of noodle in my bowl...licin-nya!
Char Siew Bao's Vietnamese Fried Noodles (RM15.80) wiv squids, above average size prawns, and fish fillets. The noodles were stir fried in scarlet red sweet & sour gravy. This tasted more like a Vietnamese version of Cantonese Fried Noodles a.k.a 'Wat Dan Hor'. Very nicely done.
I'm an all-time chendol craver, can't resist ordering this Vietnamese Chendol (RM6.80) when spotted it in the menu. Ermm...taste wise, not really aromatic and sort of tasteless.
Mung beans spotted at the bottom of the glass!
Char Siew Bao's Vietnamese Drip Coffee (RM6.50). I had a sip and I nearly choked on it. Ewww....the coffee was sooooo strong and ultra bitter! (Imagine my crumpled face)
Thumbs up for the food which I believe that it is on par with Bongsen at KLCC.
