Little Vietnam

Finally a non PSP related post. I've been desperately trying to blog about something else but with work and constant stress release with the PSP, its only natural I brag about the PSP. But not today. Today will be food blog post.

Little Vietnam, located just below of Co Do, from the name of it specialises on Vietnamese cuisine. I'm not sure what's the difference between Co Do and Little Vietnam (I don't know why I kept typing Little India...). They both serve relatively similar food.

Can someone please enlighten me on this?

Anyhows, was there with mother for lunch yesterday. She always comes here to buy Rice Paper. I love those rice paper. You eat them with raw vegetables and meats of your choice. Its simple, divine and healthy too.

Mom ordered tomato rice with Vietnames chicken sausages. It didn't look all that special or appealing actually. Kinda like normal fried rice. Didn't taste all that special. Just fried rice.

I am a huge fan of Vietnamese cold vermecelli. They are absolutely lovely especially when the sauce is real good. Char-grilled lemongrass beef and spring roll was really delicious. I love the beef, its so tender, moist with flavors of many herbs that they cooked it with. Lemongrass is fast becoming my favourite flavour.

At first taste, I thought the sauce was too sweet but when mixed with the vermicelli and all the other stuff in the bowl like raw bean sprouts, crushed peanuts, shredded carrots and finely chopped lettuce, it tasted lovely. Reminded me of a good salad dressing. I love how there's the satisfying crunch of fresh bean sprouts and hard crushed peanuts but at the same time the lovely soft vermicelli.

I highly recommend this dish to anyone who goes there. Best of all, the portion is enough to be shared between two persons.

Three colours shaved ice with fresh coconut milk.

Never have I associated cendol with Vietnamese dessert (though there is such thing as a Vietnamese cendol). When I think cendol, I think of Penang cendol. I really like this dessert. From its name, there are three ingredients that makes up the three colours, cendol, red beans and corns. Really yummy. I'm not a fan of red beans but I didn't mind it. It wasn't sickeningly sweet too. All of the flavours were just nice.

I'm definitely coming back here to try their other dishes.

Rating time.

Food: 8

I love my cold vermicelli but not the fried rice.

Price: 10

Food here is fairly cheap and not forgetting the portion is big (mostly for the noodles).

Service: 8

Took our food a little while to arrive. The waiters were nice and friendly. They even suggest what to order and take the time to explain what are the ingredients.

Ambience: 10

I love the deco in this place. Kopitiam-ish with Vietnamese furnitures. I love the paintings that they hang on the wall. Bright coloured and animalistic motive paintings.

Cute Waiters: 0

No cute waiters... But then again, its in Mid Valley. Don't need cute waiters, cute customers will do just fine.

Total Score: 7.2/10
