Let’s Eat @ Ăn Viet!

Did you know?

‘An’ means eat in Vietnamese. When put together, Ăn Viet means ‘Eat Viet‘.

What’s interesting is: the founders of Ăn Viet felt called to contribute more than just good food to the community.

According to the Food and Agriculture Organisation, a whopping 1/3 of the food produced for human consumption goes to waste every year. In response to that, Ăn Viet allows customers to choose their preferred serving size of rice (120g, 160g, 200g) and noodles (80g, 120g, 160g, 200g) to encourage customers to order only what they can finish.

On top of that, Ăn Viet will set aside RM0.10 for each person who cleans his or her plate to KOTO, a youth development social enterprise in Vietnam (KOTO). What a noble cause!

At Ăn Viet, customers will be taken on gastronomic journey through the various regions of Vietnam – North, Central and South. To complement the meal, each table is topped with a pot of fresh basil.

To enjoy, customers can harvest the basil leaves, rinse in the bowl of water provided and add into their dish. Our secret tip? Wrap slices of meat in the basil leaves for maximum taste and crunch!

Taking a Northern twist on the classic Vietnamese dish, the Phở Bò features succulent chilled knuckle, cooked brisket and vermicelli in clear broth.

The broth is a 12-hour long process to extract the flavours from marrow bones, exuding a comforting aroma and taste in each sip.

For pancake lovers: sink your teeth into this crispy Bánh Tráng Nướng!

1ae2e0d86385b237fcbbb244990412412d61f6dfb8a157248apimgpsh_fullsize_distr

Made with minced pork, quail’s egg and dried shrimp, sandwiched between rice paper and grilled over slow fire to perfection.

Next, we were delighted by this cloud of deliciousness – the Xôi Chiên Phồng, which is fried crispy glutinous rice puff served with grilled lemongrass chicken salad.

Don’t be intimidated! To eat, simply cut into the rice ball and tear into palm-sized pieces. Top with some salad and there you go. Sweet, tangy, crunchy goodness in every bite.

If you’re a salient seafood fan, you’re in for a treat. Meet the Canh Chua Ngao Nước Dứa – yummy, fresh clams boiled in coconut water, cherry tomatoes, lemongrass, dill and chili. The ocean in a bowl!

You can’t go wrong with some Gỏi Cuốn – traditional Vietnamese spring roll of vermicelli, prawns, lettuce and carrot wrapped in transparent rice paper and dripped in sweet chilli.

There’s something magical about meat wrapped in leaves. These delightful skewers – Bò Lá Lốt – feature juicy grilled lemongrass beef wrapped in heart-shaped betel leaves. Yum!

Can’t live without chicken rice? Try the Vietnam version – Gà Nướng Sả ớt, featuring generous servings of grilled boneless chicken thigh marinated with lemongrass and chilli, served with a side of pickles, rice and a sunny side up.

If you crave for some porky goodness, the Sườn Nướng comes highly recommended! Juicy, satisfying Vietnamese-style grilled pork chop bursting with flavour. Harvest a handful of fresh basil to enjoy with the meat for an even better bite!

A broth made in heaven – this bowl Bún Chả will leave you feeling satiated yet refreshed.

We love how the sweetness from pickled papaya, the saltiness from 100% pure fish sauce and the slightly burnt flavour from the chargrilled pork belly comes together in the intricate broth. Add some minced pork patties, fresh vermicelli, carrots, mint, basil, green coral, and you’ll have yourself a winner.

Catfish…cooked in caramel?

Say hello to the Cá Kho Tộ – claypot catfish and pork belly simmered in Vietnamese caramel sauce.

When served with rice, the catfish and pork oozes in sweetness yet retains it’s original flavours. Red chilli ads a hint of spice to bring the dish together.

Another Viet favourite – the Bánh Mì, basically means Vietnamese sandwich with a selection of either grilled pork chop, lemongrass chicken or pate.

We are in love with the combination of fresh, crunchy bread, grilled meat and fresh vegetables. Do give this a try!

Coffee, tea, or none? We choose the Cà Phê Sữa Nóng / Dá, Vietnamese Drip Coffee with Condensed Milk! The coffee comes in hot or cold varieties.

3b4edda6fee87e54c7698155be01fe29562a9dcbff28ed25afpimgpsh_fullsize_distr

We dare you to try the Cà Phê Trứng Siêu Ngon, which is Vietnamese Drip Coffee with Egg Yolk. For a refreshing option, try Ăn Viet’s Lime & Mint Tea or Ice Blended Coconut.

Have you had a Viet-ffogato before?

Come take a sip of condensed milk ice cream and coconut milk served with Vietnamese drip coffee. The perfect end to a superb meal.

  2. i would love to try Phở Bò , because i love to eat noodle and i strongly believe that to have a good noodle first the broth is the main key !

  3. I’d love to try the An Viet’s Bun Cha & Cà Phê Trứng Siêu Ngon (for drink) as I really love vietnamese food.. been to Hanoi 2 times for those goodies.. YUMS !

  4. You cannot escape Vietnam without trying the Cà Phê Trứng Siêu Ngon, which is Vietnamese Drip Coffee with Egg Yolk. So far, this is the only place that serves authentic coffee as the locals prefer it; smooth, velvety creamy texture that is sure to make me slurp!

  5. I’d love to try this cloud of deliciousness – the Xôi Chiên Phồng. Having Vietnam Food bought me back me back to my previous fantastic Vietnam trip . I love it’s unique taste and appearance. Yummy!

  6. I want to try Gà Nướng Sả ớt because i’m just a chicken rice fans. I had tried chinese chicken rice, malay chicken rice, indian chicken rice, hainan chicken rice but not yet try out this special vietnam chicken rice! 🙂

  7. I love Vietnam food but it is difficult to find delicious authentic Vietnam food. I haven’t try in Ăn Viet before. I’d like to try on the Bánh Tráng Nướng, Canh Chua Ngao Nước Dứa, Gỏi Cuốn…All these photos attract me!

  8. The recommended Sườn Nướng as i love Juicy pork chop as well as fresh basil taste which enhance the taste of the pork chop.

  9. I would like to try the crispy Bánh Tráng Nướng because i’m a pancake lovers, look like so special for me, hope can try it ^^

  10. I have been to Vietnam 4 times and the cuisine never ceases to amaze me with its natural and delicate flavours from its fresh ingredients and seasonings. What I would love to try at An Viet (which I had not tried before) would be Xoi Chien Phong. The dish looks aesthetically pleasing and sounds really delicious!

  11. I want to try Ca Kho To – the claypot catfish with pork belly in caramel sauce, and the Cà Phê Trứng Siêu Ngon – Vietnamese Drip Coffee with Egg Yolk!

  12. Xôi Chiên Phồng looks deliciously yummy to eat! I must definitely give this a try on my birthday, which is just few days away :p

  13. I would like to try Bánh Mì.. because not yet have chance to try this yet before at midvalley ! ! so now want to try it at sunway pyramid !

  14. I have yet to taste a truly hearty bowl of Pho Bo in Malaysia, comparable to the ones I had in Vietnam. Could An Viet satisfy my craving?😋

  15. Being a Vietnamese food advocate, I would love to try the Cá Kho Tộ (catfish and pork belly simmered in Vietnamese caramel sauce) served at Ăn Viet as it is a unique dish that looks promising and enticing as it is usually not offered here in Malaysia!

  16. Xôi Chiên Phồng is certainly the An Viet speciality I want to try! I have tried a few Vietnamese dishes but have never come across the unique Xôi Chiên Phồng. It looks amazing – like a fairy bubble – and from the description, promises to be delicious. (Can’t wait to take pictures of it!)

  17. Would really love to try Phở Bò! I first tasted this dish in Vietnam, liked it so much and hope to try this classical Vietnamese dish again soon! ❤

  18. I would like to try Bánh Mì! It’s a healthy choice of meal and I would love it to go with lemongrass chicken. I personally like Vietnamese sandwich a lot and this being one of Vietnam’s signature dish would definitely suit me. 😀

  19. Definitely would love to accept the dare and try out Cà Phê Trứng Siêu Ngon! Such a unique combination-Vietnamese Drip Coffee with Egg Yolk. Being an adventurous person, I believe I’m gonna enjoy it and this is so gonna take Vietnamese Drip Coffee to a total different level!

  20. So many things that I would love to try but i wish to try Xôi Chiên Phồng the most. This fried crispy glutinous rice puff served with grilled lemongrass chicken salad is so eye-catching; attractive food presentation as well.

  21. Hope I’ll be able to try out viet-ffogato soon! I’ve always liked affogato but it’s my first time hearing of viet-ffogato! The combination of condensed milk ice cream and coconut milk served with Vietnamese drip coffee would simply be just great. Definitely my pick to end my meal here..

  22. I wish to try out Cá Kho Tộ. I have never tasted such lovely and unique combination before – claypot catfish and pork belly simmered in Vietnamese caramel sauce. Am sure that would be great! 🙂
