10 Best Vietnamese Places In KL & PJ For You To Chow Down On

Ăn Viet, which literally means to “Eat Viet”, is a casual dining restaurant serving authentic Vietnamese food. Lookout for their bowls of pho which come with different ingredients – the famous and well-celebrated one being their beef pho. The soup is unbeatable if we have to say, just the right sourness to give your taste buds the right kick. Other dishes on the menu are also palatable and heavily-favoured to boot!

2. Pho Vietz @ Pavilion
The one delicacy that’s worth travelling to Pho Vietz for is no doubt the Caramel Sliced Pork Belly Set. This dish has a thicker gravy consistency and leans towards a more flavourful side.

Another item you’d be enthralled by will be the coffee, prepared using a traditional Vietnamese brewing method where the coffee is dripped through a filter.
