Vietnam Kitchen at Cheras, Leisure Mall

This is another CNY post. Again, an overdue post. Went out for lunch with my friends during CNY at Vietnam Kitchen. Well, I've made a Vietnam Kitchen post before this some time ago.

At first, we do not know where to have lunch. Since we are at Leisure Mall, it will normally be Vietnam Kitchen or Wong Kok Char Chan Teng. The moment we reached Wong Kok's main entrance, the waiter asked us how many people. Looking at the huge crowd inside the place, we knew we will have to wait for seats. So, we decided to jump over to Vietnam Kitchen for lunch.

Well, this is the first time I'm having Yee Sang at Vietnam Kitchen. Their Yee Sang looked so colourful~! Priced at RM38.80, there were lots of vegetables and some fruits like cucumber slices, chestnuts, carrots, dragon fruits, and many more.

After all the wishes being thrown in while mixing the Yee Sang, all of us munched on it. It was okay, but not fantastic. It tasted quite funny at first. I think the pieces of crackers "keropok" being served spoiled the Yee Sang. The crackers were actually not crispy anymore and tasted quite weird.

Moving on, below are what we had for lunch. I forgot to take photos of other food as I was too lazy. Moreover, I wouldn't be able to try them if I take the photos. So, I better take photos that I actually tried eating them. LOL

This is what my friend ordered. Lemongrass Chicken Chop with Rice. Priced at RM9.90, I think it's pretty worth it because of how well it tasted. My friend gave me a small piece of the chicken. I tried and loved it~! It was blasting with flavors and so tender. It was just so tasty. I wish I ordered that. :)

But, I'm still happy with what I ordered that day!!! Since I'm not into rice that afternoon, I decided to order the Sliced Chicken and Spring Roll with Vermicelli. Priced at RM10.90,the bowl consisted of vermicelli, lots of shredded cucumbers, raw bean sprouts, green veges, slices of chicken, one whole fried spring roll, and being topped with crushed roasted nuts. I must say that I really love it very much.

Again, the chicken were very very flavourful and tender. I don't know whether they grill them or what, but they're just awesome! Mix everything up together, I find it a very healthy meal to be with all the greens and wonderful chicken, spring roll mixed with aromatic peanuts.

Another friend of mine ordered the Vietnamese Fried Rice which costs RM9.90. At one glance, the plate of fried rice may look plain and ordinary. Without looking any further, I tried one spoon of the rice. I would describe the rice as savory, delish and enough of "wok hei". A nice plate of fried rice should be accompanied best with a fried egg. Yummy~ (Especially if it's a sunny side up~!) :P

Honestly, i feel a bit upset with their food in One Utama outlet during my last visit 2 weeks ago. I ordered the same chicken n spring roll vermicelli but it turns out to be so dry and tasteless..... I still prefer the vietname restaurant called O'veit (if not mistaken) in Sunway Pyramid. But, i do enjoy their new range of dessert - especially the soya jelly

Oh, that lemongrass chicken chop looks great! I like the charred meat, and the tower of rice! I am glad it tasted good!

kampungboycitygal - Oh, really? Long long time never go Sungai Wang. Some more don't eat there one if go also. :)

jackson - Really? Hmm, I think that their food were not bad though. I always dine at Leisure Mall's branch. I saved you hp num already. Will send sms to you when free. ;)

lannae - The chicken meat were really tasty, flavorful, and tender! =D

I think its time to pay a visit to Leisure Mall again. I live so near the mall but didn't even know Viet Kitchen has a branch there.

I've visited Vietnam Kitchen in 1U for at least 5 times, but funny till now I still haven't blog bout 'em yet. :P Like the food there though.
