It is not everyday that I get to savour authentic Vietnamese Cuisine. The large crowd waiting in line outside PHO VIETZ Authentic Vietnamese Cuisine @ Sri Petaling Kuala Lumpur is a good indicator of its popularity even before I enter the premise. We had a lovely vietnamese type of dinner the other evening, so do check out what was offered below.

|Full house that night|
Arriving at Pho Vietz, it was really crowded with diners enjoying their meal. All tables were occupied with the majority being families of 4 or more. The word Pho itself means beef soup noodle, but they do offer lots of other delectable dishes. Pho Vietz serves an extensive range of mouth-watering cuisine, over 50 choices ranging from appetisers to rice, noodles, desserts and drinks.
|Stock up on imported Vietnamese products|
Just beside the entrance of Pho Vietz, they offer an array of imported Vietnamese groceries and products up for sale. Quite a variety is available ranging from the Vietnamese instant noodles, premium grade fish sauce, condiments and many more.
|Vietnamese Atiso Tea - RM6.20 (one pot per pax)|
|Vietnamese Prawn Salad - RM15.80|
Kickstarting our meal at Pho Vietz, we were served with their Vietnamese Atiso Tea, one pot per person priced at RM6.20 per pax. The pot however, is good for up to two person, hot clear tea. It was followed by the crunchy Vietnamese Prawn Salad, a healthy mix of salad consisting of julienne carrots, coriander, mint, red chilli, thin rice noodles and sesame seed atop one big crunchy piece of prawn cracker. Sweet, sour and a tad spicy were the main tastes I could get from this salad dish.
|Fresh Prawn Roll - RM8.30|
|Vietnamese Spring Roll - RM8.30|
It's mandatory when dining at a Vietnamese restaurant to try out their version of the Fresh Prawn Roll. I've always been a fan of these translucent rice paper rolls. Packed with poached prawn, vermicelli noodles, carrots, cucumbers, chives and herbs, this refreshing dish goes very well with the sweet and savoury peanut dipping sauce. If you prefer something deep fried, then do try out their Vietnamese Spring Roll, with minced pork packed and wrapped into the rice roll and deep fried to perfection. Love the sweet flavours of the sauce and crunchy peanuts on top.
|Steamed Rice Crepe Rolls With Minced Pork - RM10.50|
|Banh Mi (Baguette) , Vietnamese Baguette With Pork Ball - RM9.90|
Next we had the Steamed Rice Crepe Rolls With Minced Pork and the Banh Mi Baguette (Vietnamese Baguette With Pork Ball). The Steamed Rice Crepe Rolls With Minced Pork reminded me of our chinese chee cheong fun, soft and thin with yummy minced pork inside. Banh Mi Baguette is known to be a very popular sandwich in Vietnam, where you get to choose from a variety of meat and vegetable fillings. Yummy stuff, especially the crispy crust of the sandwich.
|Vietnamese Sour Soup & Caramel Fish With Rice - RM30.90|
|Vietnamese Sour Soup|
A main dish fit for two to share, we tried the value-for-money set of seafood sour soup and caramel fish dish. The Vietnamese Sour Soup looked spicy but instead is a refreshing sweet and sour soup comprising of fresh prawns, and vegetables. It comes with a bowl of steamed jasmine rice. I like the caramel fish, where they used mackerel fish with white fillets. The savoury caramel sauce made all the difference!
|Vietnamese Beef Noodle Soup - RM17.90|
|Vietnamese Pork Rib Noodle Soup - RM17.90|
Pho Vietz's signature dishes would be their Pho. When you're there, you must try out their Pho, vietnamese Beef Noodle Soup as well as their Vietnamese Pork Rib Noodle Soup. Considered one of the most popular street food in Vietnam, these dishes could be found in every major cities in Vietnam, and we get to savour the best here. It's a rather meaty soup dish, with generous amounts of beef and pork rib thrown into the dish. Good stuff.
|Stir Fried Tiger Prawn Ho Fun - RM21.90|
For the more luxurious palate and taste buds, do go for Pho Vietz's Stir Fried Tiger Prawn Ho Fun. Served with generous amounts of gravy, atop the flat rice noodles, we had these 3 large deep fried tiger prawns, together with shittake mushrooms, onions, green peppers and brocolli. It tastes very similar to our cantonese sar hor fun dish.
|Fresh Avocado Milk Shake - RM9.90|
|Vietnamese Coffee With Milk (Hot) - RM7.90|
If you're planning on visiting Pho Vietz for some authentic Vietnamese cuisine, be sure to try out their very unique drinks as well. From the fresh avacado milk shake, to the Vietnamese Coffee with milk, you are spoilt for choice. Do drop by the next time you are in the vicinity of Sri Petaling Kuala Lumpur.
