Dinner at Restoran Vnam Kitchen


My neighbour introduced me to this Vietnamese restaurant and so we dropped by last weekend to try it out.   It was packed when we arrived but managed to get a table after waiting for a while.  I was rather amused by the footnote on the menu which caught my eye  ......."If the food is delicious, tell your friends.  If the food is not delicious, please tell us"!
The proprietress of the restaurant was a gusty lady with very good PR.  She apologised to customers for late service, thanked them vehemently for patronising her restaurant and reiterated that they return for more.
When the food came, I clicked away and also checked with the waitress about the ingredients.  I also asked the lady boss about the sauce that went into my dried vermicelli/mong.  She was a bit surprised that I was so inquisitive and also noticed that I was taking shots of the food.  So, I casually told her that  I would like to post her restaurant's food on my blog.  She also mentioned that her husband, the chef had been specialising in Vietnamese food for 12 years in the States and they have outlets in the Klang valley as well. There's an outlet in Wooley Centre, Ipoh Garden but there's not much variety there.
When we asked for the bill, guess what ...... she told us that the pot of tea was complimentary as an appreciation for blogging her restaurant's food and we only paid 18.40  rgt for the scrumptious meal!




Ain't this teapot cute? ..... short and stout.   Imported from Vietnam along with ......


the tea, also from Vietnam.  The tea tasted fine unlike the normal jasmine or pu-er.


Appetiser  .... Cabbage, carrot and chicken shreds, mixed with some tamarind powder, a bit of sugar, topped with roasted peanuts, chopped spring onions and red chilly.  Tastes a bit like kerabu minus the [email protected] 6 rgt.


This is real appetising, light and refreshing!




Chicken noodles in soup .... flat noodles resemble our local 'hor fun' but this is a bit chewy, with slices of deep fried chicken.   Toss in the basil leaves and bean sprouts, yummy, especially the soup. [email protected] 5.90 rgt.



This is my order, dry rice vermicelli with spring roll.  The sauce to go into this bowl of goodies .... Vietnamese fish sauce and some lemon juice [email protected] 6.50 rgt


The flat noodles and  rice vermicelli are all imported from Vietnam as they're not available locally.

    Yes, go try out with Elin, they open for lunch I think. Call them first and see whether you can book a table, very 'laku'. Viet food not heavy.

Coffee Kahlua Chiffon Cake ~ 咖啡戚风蛋糕

  It's Chiffon cake again.  I never get tired of baking chiffon cakes and am still looking for new flavours of chiffon cakes.  This is a coffee chiffon with added Kahlua liqueur.  I have shared Coffee chiffon with cocoa layering and Coffee Marble chiffon cake on my blog before and if you are interested feel free to take a peep.  Again as with all chiffon cakes, this Coffee Kahlua chiffon cake doesn't disappoint, it's soft and moist with a tinge of Kahlua liqueur.

Marble Butter Cake ~ 大理石牛油蛋糕

This is one of the most popular Butter Cake recipes among fellow bloggers and I've read many reviews about this cake.  Credit must be given to Mrs S K Ng for so generously sharing her recipe.   This cake is moist, fluffy, soft, not overly sweet and the texture is just right.  Must admit that this is the best butter cake that I've ever tasted.  I tweaked the recipe to make a Marble Butter Cake instead. So glad to see that there weren't any cracks on the surface although it rose slightly in the middle. Marble Butter Cake ~   大理石牛油蛋糕      Ingredients (A) 230 gm butter 150 gm vanilla/caster sugar 200 gm self-raising flour 4 egg yolks   (I used 68 gm eggs with shell) 60 ml milk 1 tsp vanilla essence 8 gm chocolate powder a pinch of salt (B) 4 egg whites 30 gm vanilla/caster sugar Method 1.     Line the base of an 8 inch square pan with parchment paper, grease and dust the sides of the pan with flour.  Set aside. 2.

Coffee Walnut Butter Cake ~ 咖啡核桃牛油蛋糕

  This Coffee Walnut Butter cake recipe is adapted from my Marble Butter Cake which I posted some time back.  I tweaked it a bit to accommodate blended walnuts, added some coffee and Kahlua liqueur.  As always, Mrs. Ng's butter cake recipe never fails and this cake is soft and moist and indeed yummy.
