Cheap and Good Vietnamese Cuisine in Penang
So glad that yet another joins the 'Cheap & Good' list.
Also it joins the 'Best Coffee' list.
This is like a 2 in 1 special then.
We have to agree that there are not many Vietnamese restaurants in town and if you are into Vietnamese food, this is the place you should come.
The spring rolls are superb with pork and prawn fillings inside.
Beef pho comes with the basil and all the leafy condiments.
You need to be able to speak some Mandarin cause the people serving are Vietnamese and they mainly speak Vietnamese and Mandarin.
So it may be a little tricky, bring a Mandarin speaking friend or just point :-)
Ice coffee with milk is really nice. It is the traditional drip coffee, you could order the hot one and watch it drip.
Order 1 ice milk coffee and 1 ice black coffee without sugar
then mix the two
You will get palpitations all day from the coffee buzz :-p
The place is very unassuming and cosy.
The people are really friendly.
They won't shoo you away even if you have passed their opening hours.
Parking may be a problem, so I would suggest you park opposite by the service road and walk across the busy Jalan Jelutong.
Trust me, this place is worth the while you braving the traffic.
Look out for the daily specials.
