Vietnam Kitchen @ 1 Utama

To the left or to the right? How about the one over at the ground floor? Or maybe the one which is tucked at the corner over at the first floor. Hmm..... plenty of restaurants to choose from .... simply spoilt for choice. It's tough when you have so many options to choose from especially when you could only choose one.

Yeah, we were talking about the many choices one could have in 1 Utama shopping mall over at Bandar Utama. Dinner time was getting closer and most restaurants are getting crowded as the time ticks. So, we have a couple of hungry belly to feed and got to make a decision fast.

We had a quick thought about it and decided to go for Vietnamese food. We made our way up to the 2nd floor (new wing) and viola found the restaurant and was immediately showed to our place by the waiter. Efficient. This place is already crowded with hungry dinner patrons and we were really lucky to have found a seat as from my observation seating were limited. Oh yeah, this place is called 'Vietnam Kitchen'.

This restaurant is surely a hit amongst the shoppers. People are still queueing up to dine here. One look at the menu tells me why this place is popular. They have a large variety of food choice to choose from. You can either order from the ala' carte or choose to go for the set meals. There is a choice of either rice or noodle, vegetables plates, seafood or meat or even salad to choose from. And the best thing I noticed was the pricing was pretty pocket friendly.

Vietnamese Tea @ RM4.50++ per pax
We ordered some fine Vietnamese tea which tasted quite 'light' something I am not used to as I prefer Chinese tea like the 'char wong' or 'pu er'. Anyway this is one that really shocked me as it costs RM4.50 per pax which means we had to fork out RM9.00 just for this pot of tea.

Special Beef Noodle Soup @ RM13.90++
Now this is one knock out noodle this restaurant is famous for or rather "Vietnam" is famous for. It was very aromatic and the soup was very yummy. Beef meat was sliced very thinly which was a joy to be eaten.

Vietnamese Spring
Grilled Lemongrass Chicken Chopped Set @ RM16.90++
This platter brought smile to my face.  This set comes with some Vietnamese spring, some pickles, a bowl of vege soup, Vietnamese sauce for dipping and an egg on top of a bowl of fragrant white rice. The grilled lemongrass chicken was perfectly done and it's taste was superb. The springs was equally good ~ crunchy on the outside and smooth delicious filling on the inside. Fantastic !

FYI, their other outlets can be found in OUG, AON Bukit Tinggi, Jaya33 and Leisure Mall.

Conclusion : What a meal, I must admit it was good and portion was enough to fill a couple of hungry belly. Service was good even when the place was super crowded. Food was good and was pocket friendly. A 4/5.
