After eating at Vietnamese restaurant Kimmade, I want to explore more Vietnamese food in
Together with W. we had Vietnamese food at the Dutch city
Na Vietnamese restaurant Kimmade, wil ik meer Vietnamese voedsel verkennen in ons kikkerlandje. Op een dag zal ik echt Vietnamees gaan eten in Vietnam, maar voor nu zal ik het maar moeten doen met de pareltjes hier.
Samen met W. gingen we Vietnamees eten in de stad Rotterdam bij Restaurant Pho voor avondeten. Ik loop vaak langs deze plek en was zeer blij toen ik deze (best drukke) plek binnen treed. Ik was blij dat we een tafel konden krijgen binnen 5 minuten en dat zonder reservering, dus mijn tip voor u: reserveer!
We ordered:2 Saigon beer1 ice tea green1 veggie spring rolls1 Vietnamese chicken salad1 stir fried noodles shrimp1 pho chicken & shrimp
Goi Cuon Chay
For starters I've picked 'Goi Cuan Chay' which are 'veggie spring rolls' that came in 2 large - really large - rolls with 2 dipping sauce. The flavors were on spot, tangy, spicy and to be honest I was feeling a bit full after having them. For just 5 bucks I think it's a good plate.
If I had to compare with ones from Kimmade and Restaurant Pho, I think Kimmade have my slight vote.
My friend W. chose the chicken salad for starters, which looks pretty yum too!
Saigon beerI'm really not fond of beer but I haven't tried a Saigon beer before. Even though I prefer wine over beer I was willing to try out this Saigon beer! Me and my friend W. shared it and it tasted ok, perhaps better than a can of Heineken beer. My friend W. liked it though that he even ordered a 2nd one. Still, I'm no fond of beer myself. I'll take a Bailey anytime over beer!
Pho chicken and shrimp
I can't eat at a restaurant called Restaurant Pho without ordering pho right? Their menu is kind of disappointing in terms of vegetarian options which there wasn't many. In fact there were zero veggie options at the pho, rice and noodle dishes.
To my big disappointment I end up choosing the least meat option which is the pho chicken & shrimp and requested to have no chicken in it and the service kindly did that and it also came with a bowl of fresh salad.
The pho tasted really lovely and fragrant and oh boy I was so stuffed after finished this big steamy bowl!
