Proper, soul-warming Vietnamese food is the next big thing – pho real. Even in KL, we are seeing more new Vietnamese restaurants opening up and one of it is Super Saigon at TTDI.
Vietnamese food is considered one of the healthiest foods worldwide, relying on fresh herbs and spices to improve flavour. Hence, it is not surprising to see La Juiceria, the purveyor of fresh and healthy food chose to launch a new Vietnamese eatery.
Super Saigon TTDI’s menu features Melbourne-style pho and other classic Vietnamese eats such as pho, banh mi, bun cha, and com tam. The waitstaff explained that the pho is best eaten with a satay sauce and eaten with a spoon and chopsticks.
I love my cup of strong, dark-roasted Vietnamese coffee with condensed milk that actually cuts the intensity and bitterness really well.
We started off with some refreshing and fresh paper roll wrapped with prawns and veggies (RM 9.90). The homemade peanut dipping sauce is one of the best parts of the dish.
Anchored by assorted chicken cold cuts and pâté, the mixed chicken banh mi (RM 12.90) was tasty but a tad dry for my likings.
A bowl of pho is as good as its broth. There’s no trick to the noodles, really, and Super Saigon uses high grade beef from Australia. The amber coloured broth has a rich and robust flavour, and the addition of sate sauce adds dept and body to the already amazing broth.
Soft boiled kampung egg (RM 3) in pho broth was really, really good too! The yolk mixes with some of the broth and it adds a rich, unctuous, and filling element to the soup.
Super Saigon is always busy and now we know why – great food and great service all at a reasonable price. I can’t wait to visit their brand new outlet at Sri Hartamas!
