Many of you might think that since I'm so into Thai food, I must enjoy the cuisines from nearby countries as well. But that is quite far from the truth, actually. I had given Vietnamese food some chances, and I just can't seem to fall in love with it. This Vietnamese place has been around for a few decades. It wasn't bad at all, but I just can't seem to acquire the taste for it!
Self-service soup and sauce!
Not sure what kind of soup it is.
It's probably quite unfair for me to completely deny Vietnamese food a place in my heart... I feel obliged to mention that I was still at the phase where I couldn't really eat much when we came here for this meal. It was still during the first trimester, and since I finished most of what I could eat, I suppose I must give the place the credit it deserves.
They served a plate of sprouts after we ordered. We weren't sure what it was for, but I guessed that it was to put into the hot soup. Soon after, it was confirmed that I was, in fact, correct.
涼拌雞肉雞絲米線 Chicken and vermicelli salad
We ordered this thinking something cold would help boost my appetite.
It was not bad, I have to say. Except, I don't usually fancy sprouts in my dish. Usually, I'd take care of them first, before I devour the rest of the dish. Another thing I didn't like was the peanuts. But these are just personal idiosyncracies!
越南熟牛肉河粉 Beef and rice noodles
Seeing that I had started to eat beef, the other half and I decided to order a bowl of beef noodles. We shared both dishes between us.
There was an ample amount of noodles in it.
Remember to put in the sprouts and mix well.
They were pretty generous with the beef as well.
After this meal, I still couldn't say that I enjoy Vietnamese food. But at least I gave it another shot.
The place has been around for a few decades. I'm sure there is a reason for it to withstand the test of time. However, you can't force someone to like something, right?
