Viet Food

Autumn 2015 saw a trend of Vietnamese restaurants in London opening. The first one I want to share is Viet Food that has took over a previously Vietnamese restaurant in London Chinatown. The owner has transferred the place to give it a rustic atmosphere.

There are a range of drinks on the menu including cocktails and mocktails. Viet Food also offer two of their own juice. I tried the Wow Wow which came served in a mini milk bottle for £3.50. Although it was a cute way to present juice but it was too expensive for the amount of juice that was serve at that price tag.

For hot drinks, Viet Eat offer a lemongrass tea (£1.90) that is served in a teapot and better value then the juice.

We tried the Tradition rice paper summer roll with prawns (£5).

We ordered two of the chef selection dishes to try and the portion size was small. These dishes are good to have with one rice and give an alternative to having noodle.

The tender belly pork (£7.50) only had 3-pieces of belly pork and the portion size reminded me of House of Ho. But I did not think it was as good and thought it need to brasied longer as it was not soft enough.

Chargrilled lemongrass chicken (£6.50) was nice with succlent moist chicken. Full of flavour and goes well with pickle vegetables.

There are five different phos to select from the menu. We tried the pho with the lean rare beef. The broth was fragrant as you expect from a Vietnamese pho.

Bun is a vermicelli noodle that is served like a salad. Each one is toped with cucumber, bers, peanuts and a choice of pork, beef or prawn. They all are serve with a fish sauce which you need to pour over the dish, otherwise the dish is dry and bland.

I do like the decor of Viet food but the food didn’t stand out for me to say “Woah”. I would visit again but not in a rush to. However there will be some dish I would not order such as the belly pork. I probably stick to their pho and bun.
