A few weeks after Atria was opened, both gNOMes finally paid a visit there. A bunch of stand alone restaurants have popped up, which means, REVIEW TIME! 😀
After the first attempt of wanting to dine in Pho Viet failed rather miserably because of the long queue (we ended up at Tokyo Ramen instead), the second attempt has finally succeeded.
We couldn’t find any Vietnamese cuisine here which resembles closely to what we had in HCMC, so any new Vietnamese joint is always welcomed.
Located on the 3rd Floor in Atria Shopping Gallery, Pho Viet dishes out a variety of Vietnamese cuisine ranging from Banh Mi, Marinated Lemongrass Pork Chop Rice to Pho. Now who is excited! 😀 Hoorah!
Iced Vietnamese Coffee with Milk [RM 7.90]
This wasn’t the best cup of Vietnamese coffee that we’ve had so far, with it being strong but a tad too harsh.
[Left to Right : Vietnamese Coffee [RM 7.90]; Avacado Milk Shake [RM 9.90]]
The avacado milk shake is a tad light, extra slices of avacado would make the drink perfect. A good substitute for those who aren’t up for coffee on that day.
Beef Noodle Soup [RM 17.90]
Three cheers for Vietnamese Pho! Ever since dining in Pho Quynh (Ho Chi Minh), the gNOMes have been searching for that similar taste of soup in Malaysia, but have so far been unsuccessful. This bowl of Pho was so good that the gNOMes consider it to be of Ho Chi Minh standard! One of our new favorites.
Hue Style Spicy Beef Noodle Soup [RM 17.90]
The broth of this noodle soup was very herbal and tasty. Overall a very good bowl to consume. If there was one thing the gNOMes could fault about this dish, it would only be because it wasn’t spicy enough for us.
Beef Stew with Baguette [RM 17.90]
An option to pair the beef stew with baguette or plain white rice is available. Chunks of super tender beef cooked in hot pot, soaked in well seasoned stew sauce with soft carrots. This dish just screams YUMS! So hearty, with a burst of robust flavours. Every single morsel was wiped clean. But on the other hand, the baguette wasn’t what it is supposed to be, it lacks the crunchy factor a baguette must have. This one is slightly on the softer side. But overall, no complaints from the gNOMes! 😀
Verdict : The Vietnamese food here is really good, which pretty much justifies the normal queue seen here. Perhaps it may slightly be on the pricey side, but do expect a really good meal on your table!
