Vietnam Que Huong Toi @ Jalan Jelutong, Penang

Fascinating to find more Vietnamese food surfaced in Penang these day. This modest shop might be overlooked at the busy road at Jalan Jelutong, you might just notice Peugoet showroom located just next to it. This restaurant is run by a bunch of Vietnamese and most of them don't understand English/Mandarin/Hokkien except the guy who are the cashier cum order taker. I assume he is the boss of this restaurant.

How could I miss Vietnam's signature hand roll? Goi Cuon (RM1.80) came with the filling of shredded carrot, jicama, beansprouts, fresh prawn and salad veggie wrapped with rice paper. Dipped with the mixture of vinegar sour sauce and chili hoisin sauce gave a great satisfaction to my tongue.

Vietnam Chicken Glass Noodle, Mieng Ga (RM 6) definitely something I would die for. The glass noodle was thin with chewy texture, tender chicken slices, fish balls, fresh prawns, pork mince with chicken organs were found in the soup. Fresh and crunchy beansprout bring extra texture to the noodle. It's rich soup has topped with plentiful scallions and pan fried garlic and thus brought out the soup's essence even more.

Sambal looks-like chili paste available on the table.

Hot Vietnam Black Coffee, Cafe Den (RM 2.80) requires a lot of patient for a full cup of coffee to be readily filtered which took about 15 minutes. For those who prefer super thick coffee scent would definitely prefer this. I was told to sip the coffee slowly in order to savor the coffee scent with my tongue. He was right, the coffee's scent was so thick that you hardly can gallop down in on short. Notice a small metal teapot beside the coffee? That is the hot tea for you to pour onto your coffee cup and wash it down your throat.

After a warm cup of thick coffee, chill up with cold Mu Gon+Mu Chom+Hot E (RM 5) which is Vietnamese herbal tea. A thirst-quencher drink and something to bite one with toasted peanut, basil seed and Mu Gon which is a kind of jelly substance usually used as medical beverages.

Their food came with reasonable price but parking might be a problem there.
