Vietnam Kitchen - USJ 9

Elsa, Beth and myself haven't hung out for awhile - the last we did was just before Christmas when they hosted a surprise engagement dinner for Barry and me.

It was a fantastic Italian-themed dinner : boncoccini, tomatoes, basil appetiser, bread and dip, roasted vegetables, seafood risotto (yum!), Italian wedding soup (yum yum!). It was such a delicious dinner and out tummies were very happy. We were given a HUGE card - it was really BIG (bigger than A4). On top of it, we were treated to a gift certificate at Ozmosis Spa for a couple steam bath and aromatherapy massage. We were truly spoilt by them.

So, we decided to catch up over lunch, a plan made while Beth and I met briefly at the condo's convenience store. This time we decided to give Vietnamese a go (I am no expert at Vietnamese food, having only the experience of Du Viet at Sunway Pyramid and if I am not mistaken, in Richmond, BC).

As we ordered a bowl each of the special beef pho, we did not order too many appetisers as the pho was huge.

Vietnamese Cupcake - delicious with loads of cili padi in fish sauce - 3 pcs for RM5.50. You will like this if you like dried shrimps (the red powder seems to be powdered dried shrimps) - a bit on the salty side even without fish sauce.
Banana Mango Roll - 2pcs for RM6.90

Beef pho - RM11.90 each; can't fault this as I love soups (hehe) - should have asked for cili padi to go with it.

For drinks, we had Mango Milkshake, Water chestnut drink, Vietnamese coffee.

I thought it was pretty good and value-for-money : RM74.06 (10% service charge included).

And of course, it was great to catch up!!
