Too peppery

For a change, we ordered the deep fried pepper and salt prawns. Can't see the prawns from this angle.

This angle is much better. I find this dish too salty for me. Won't be ordering this again.

Can't go wrong with the beef noodles

This is some sort of seafood noodles. Taste quite nice. I am not sure whether or not the plate of herbs next to it is for this seafood noodles or not.

Glass Roll - a bit too dry and hard so won't be ordering this again also

  2. Oooo, when I see the title, I thought you're having pig stomach soup.. The beef noodles and seafood noodles look very good, soup looks very flavourful too..

  3. The moment I saw the first dish, I recognised it. I was surprised you'd order that dish when you have such a low tolerance for salt.

    It proved too salty for me too.

    1. I wanted to eat prawns and it is the only dish with prawns that look nice enough in the menu. I can't believe both outlets cook the dish until too salty so it must be the recipe that calls for too much salt.

  4. I'll take note not to order the prawns. I avoid taking food that is too salty.

  5. The plate of herbs.. I think they are beansprouts and basil leaves? I like the smell of basil leaves so I put them a lot into the beef soup when I eat in Viet restaurant..

    2. I believe those are Vietnamese mint. The leaves of Thai basil, if I'm correct, has a bit of a jagged edge.

  9. Don't really fancy Vietnamese cuisine. The only thing I like is their pho, although I only eat them in the US as I don't eat beef in Malaysia. :P

    But ah, that salt and pepper prawns, is that really Vietnamese food? Don't recall seeing such a dish in the menus in all the Vietnamese restaurants I went to in the US..

  10. Prawns! My favorite! Too bad the dish you ordered is too salty.

  11. Ah...beef noodles whenever I go for Vietnamese food and they always serve with the plate of bean sprout and basil leaves. Too bad the prawns and glass roll were a disappointment.

    1. If not too peppery and too salty, it would be super tasty.

  20. Oh yes! I remembered going there to eat and it was nice for me as I ate something else. Finally I might be making a visit to Vietnam for the first time soon to try their real cooking.
