This is my second visit to a Vietnamese restaurant, and coincidentally both times to the same restaurant … Vietnam Kitchen. Vietnam Kitchen now has 5 outlets, – besides 1 Utama and Leisure Mall it is also in Taipan USJ, OUG in Jalan Klang Lama, Kuala Lumpur and also in Sungei Wang Plaza. Vietnam Kitchen offers authentic Vietnamese cuisine as their Executive Chef Hiep used to work for The Equatorial in Ho Chi Minh City for 15 years.

If you are new to Vietnamese food, and don’t know how to order, I would recommend a very special combination set of Banh Hoi Thap Cam, which is a DIY spring roll with rice paper, pork, chicken and vermicelli, fried spring rolls, minced shrimp on sugarcane and pork balls. These make a good introduction to this delicate cuisine. The rice paper is specially flown in from Vietnam, so expect a fragile texture. Served on a platter, matted by banana leaves, it comes with fish sauce and sweet sauce, both of which are used as dips. As the platter serves up to four people, it can either be an appetiser or eaten as a full-course meal. For less than RM25, it definitely is worth a bite.

There are also the broken rice dishes, using fragrant rice from Vietnam. You could have rice with lemon grass-flavoured chicken and pork chop and egg, or rice served with beef in tomato sauce. It doesn’t burn a hole in your pocket eating at Vietnam Kitchen. The huge bowl of Special Beef Rice Noodles is RM9.90; Mixed Vietnamese Ham, RM8; Flat Rice Rolls with Minced Pork, RM6.90; Soursop Milkshake, RM4.90; and the combination set RM21.90.
