Thanks for the wonderful invitation, I recently went to Rasa Viet and get to sample some of their signature unique and classic Vietnamese cuisine. Located at The Sphere Bangsar South, it is a Muslim friendly casual dining restaurant offering pork-free dishes using food products procured from Halal certified suppliers.
Available with prawn or chicken, this Summer Roll (RM8.50 per roll) consists of lettuce, cucumber, bean sprouts, vermicelli, pickled carrot and daikon. Served with their special peanut sauce, I enjoyed how fresh and refreshing this dish is, making it a wonderful healthy light meal or appetizer to indulge. For vegetarian, you can opt for the tofu version (RM7.30 per roll).
I also like their crispy Chicken Fried Roll (RM13.40 for 2 rolls) with filling mixture of chicken, taro, black fungus, vermicelli, carrot, and daikon. The accompanied fish sauce gives it a nice touch of flavour by reducing its oiliness.
This Lemongrass Chicken Skewer is surely a crowd pleaser with its flavourful tender meat. You can order 4 skewers for RM11.90, but I would recommend to order 8 skewers for RM22.20 because this dish is simply delicious!
You must try their Pho (rice noodle soup) when dine-in at Rasa Viet. There are so many choice of Pho to choose from, such as Steamed Chicken, Smoked Duck, Grilled Chicken, Prawn, Vegetarian, and Classic Beef. Simmered in the pot for more than 10 hours, the broth is boiled with natural ingredients and spices. They also do not add in MSG for the flavouring.
Remember to taste the clear broth first, then only enhance its flavour with their specially made garlic vinegar to suit your taste buds. You can also inform the waiter if you do not want to have onion, coriander, and spring onion to be served in your bowl of Pho.
For those who are not fancy the soup noodle dish, Rasa Viet offers a selection of Dry Vermicelli with toppings like grilled chicken, fried roll, and tofu. You can adjust its wetness and flavour by pouring in your desired amount of their special sauce.
How can you miss this famous Drip Coffee (RM9.90) when dine-in at a Vietnamese restaurant! Have it black or with milk, you will definitely fall in love with its robust taste and the whole process of preparation, especially for the true coffee lovers.
I ordered the velvety smooth Caramel Pudding (RM5.90) to go with their drip coffee, which nicely balanced up with the bitter-sweet taste of my dessert.
