Little Vietnam @ Midvalley

We watched "Black Sheep" at GSC Midvalley and before da movie, we decided to have dinner in Little Vietnam. Located on da highest floor of Midvalley (same floor as GSC), I find this restaurant rather unique although da capacity of this place isn't that huge. I remember that we came here once for dinner a year back and find da food here not too bad but I didn't write any review on my past visit cause I forgot to bring my camera, how ironic. Hence this time, I made sure that I put my camera inside my bag before I left da house :D

We were feeling hungry that night and started with a generous serving of Vietnamese Sampler (RM 14.90). Very big portion indeed for da two of us ;)

Da Rice Paper Rolls were pretty standard, nicely wrapped and soft, yummy!

Next, we tried da Deep-fried Spring Roll. Surprise, surprise... there were no oily! Loved it, especially when it's served piping hot.

This Beansprouts in sesame and soy sauce were rather plain and hard, like too "raw" so I didn't quite like it.. :|

Thumbs up for da char grilled Chicken Meat Ball, tender, yummy and da sauce... goes so well with it :D

I liked this da most, Sugarcane Prawn. I don't know why they named this as Sugarcane Prawn when that were actually Lemongrass. Yeaps, Prawn on Lemongrass and not Sugarcane. Still, da lovely smoky Bbq Prawn flavour has my vote, delicious!

For mains, darling went for da Cold Vermicelli. Priced at RM 8.80, it's served with Chicken Sausage and Spring Roll (again!). Lucky thing that da Spring Roll were good if not, I don't think we could finish them up since there were so many of them, lol! I had one bite of da Chicken Sausage and I loved it, tastes so different and looks so different, flat and thin, definitely not da normal kind of Chicken Sausage which is long and think ;)

As for myself, I had Rice Noodle, which they called it as "Hu Tieu". Priced at RM 12.90, it's served with one plate of char grilled Lemongrass Chicken. Tastes good but da meat were rather dry. As for da noodles, definitely not da usual ones... thinner and softer while da soup, real good cause I didn't feel thirsty at all right after my dinner. I assumed no MSG added to my soup ;)

I saw da bill, RM 40. That's very affordable compare to other Vietnamese eateries. We left Little Vietnam with a heavy tummy, oh my god... we were so full!!!!! We will definitely come back for more.. ;)

I always go to Little Vietnam at least once a month because my work place is at Mid Valley. I usually oder the Hue Beef Hu Tieu (RM 14) or their Tom Yam (RM 8.50), or their Poridge (RM 8)or for a healthier selection, the 5 Color Mix Rice (RM 8). All these taste really not bad at all. Maybe you can try it out on your next visit. Oh, I like the Vietnamese Sampler too!

Rasa Malaysia said...

Yeah, the sugarcane prawn is always a winner. In the US, it's longer, they don't cut it up like the one on your picture. ;)
