We were in Puchong running an errand and stumbled on this place that boasted authentic Vietnamese cuisine. We were sold on the idea, and walked in purposefully.

The ambiance and décor was testament to its authenticity, and the personnel were actual Vietnamese as well.

unassuming facade belied what was in store

the decor got us hooked

For appetisers we tried the 1Banh Beo while for the main course Brendan, Cat and I unanimously went for the Vietnamese Beef Noodle Soup.

ordered the same thing

ulam (salad) 

Perusing the place, I noticed other patrons having a quite ravishing cup of Vietnamese-styled coffee so I followed suit.

irresistible!

The verdict? This ‘café’ which seemed more like restaurant is run by actual Vietnamese so the dishes served were authentic. Though not falling within the category of the everyday food for the everyday man it’s a welcomed occasional distraction.
