An Viet Vietnamese Restaurant at The Gardens – Mid Valley KL serves more than just a restaurant. Besides bringing a taste of Vietnam into this city, An Viet also takes part in the movement to raise public awareness in reducing food wastage. FYI, according to record from Food & Agriculture Organization of The United Nations, there are over 1 billion of food wastage every year throughout the world, while some still suffering from starvation at the same time. An unhealthy scene that needs attention.
So how does An Viet plays their role? Look through An Viet menu. The carb – Rice and noodles are separated into a choice of 80g, 100g, 120g, 140g, 160g. Get a rough estimation on how much you can finish to minimize the possibility of unfinished food in your plate. For general eaters, we suggest to start with 120g. You can add on at no chargers if you need more. Definitely a small effort that contributes in long run.
Hehe.. Clear? So let’s come back to the delicious Vietnamese cuisine in An Viet Restaurant. This eatery covers some of the popular traditional dishes in Vietnam, which you may already know – Vietnamese Spring Roll, Bun Cha, Banh Mi, Grilled Lemongrass Chicken, Grilled Vietnamese Pork Chop, Beef Noodles, and so forth.
Bun Cha RM17.90
Summergirl has been missing Bun Cha (grilled pork immersed in soup) since we back from Hanoi Vietnam last year. Have this craving fulfilled in An Viet with an order of this famous Vietnamese dish. Quite similar to the version we had back in the country, but less sweet for the broth. Deeper marination flavours for the grilled pork chop too, each fully tinged with fish sauce loaded broth to taste.
Bear in mind that this is cold dish. Soup is not tummy warming version like pho. To eat, put some vege and rice noodles in the soup, “dip like Tsukumen style” and have with grilled meat.
Vietnamese Pork Chop Set RM21.90
Two grilled pork chop on thin inches but sizeable, good enough to fit a hungry stomach. Set comes with appetizer of the day, soup and rice.
Vietnemese Spring Roll, wrapping plenty of textures within rice sheet. Not as good compared to the first time we had it in ala-carte.
Suan Nuong (Vietnamese Pork Chop)
Vietnamese Sour Clam Soup
Hmmm, not exactly a fan of this. Probably need to savour few more times before we can really appreciate the beauty of this soup.
Sinh To Dua (Ice Blended Coconut) RM10.90
Wash down with a glass of beyond expectation coconut ice blended drink topped with a mini scoop of ice cream. Surprisingly refreshing despite the thick coconuty in every sip.
In short, An Viet Vietnamese Restaurant serves as a good place in Mid Valley and The Gardens area for quick lunch, family dinner or friends gathering. Nice, comfort food without having to burn a whole in your pocket.
