Ăn Viet

Ăn Viet is a Vietnamese restaurant in Sunway Pyramid. This casual dining eatery specializes in home-cooked Vietnamese dishes. On weekends, the shop is packed with customers especially during peak hours.
Phở Gà Set (RM19.90) is a soup dish with bánh phở, a type of flat rice noodle that resembles shahe fen (沙河粉). Unlike the usual beef recipe, this soup is derived from chicken broth. The soup also contains tender slices of chicken. I think the beef version is tastier, but this still works for people who do not take beef.
Bean sprouts are meant to be blanched briefly in hot soup so that they remain crunchy. In addition, red chili and lime serve to enhance the soup's appeal. Other side dishes are Vietnamese spring roll (gỏi cuốn), chicken meatball and salad (nộm).
Another dish that we tasted today is Sườn Nướng (RM16.90) or grilled pork ribs. The pork is still reasonably juicy at the center. This dish is supposed to come with clam soup but it is not available today, so a bowl of sour soup (canh chua) is served instead. Also included are Vietnamese spring roll, salad, fried egg and rice.
Moving on to drinks, Cà Phê Trứng (RM8.90) is an interesting Vietnamese egg coffee. Invented in Hanoi, this drink was meant to overcome the shortage of milk during the First Indochina War. The main ingredients are drip coffee, condensed milk and egg yolk. There is an additional layer of egg cream on top.
Sinh Tố Mít (RM10.90) is an ice blended smoothie made from actual jackfruit (nangka). The distinctive aroma and taste of jackfruit are present in this refreshing drink.
Ăn Viet promotes the virtue of not wasting food. To this end, the restaurant allows customers to customize their rice or noodle serving sizes at no extra charge. Besides this outlet, Ăn Viet has another restaurant at The Gardens Mall.
