Hello hello! Today we’re at Vietnam Noodle Star. Throughout the years that I’ve been here, they’ve definitely upgraded quite a bit. They’ve changed the look of the menus, as well as expanded the store to fit more customers. Vietnam Noodle Star is a mix of Vietnamese and Chinese food. I usually get the House Special Pho here cause I really enjoy it. From time to time, I do get their Penang Laksa or Seafood Laksa. They also have condiments on the side of each table consisting of Squid sauce, Hoisin sauce, lat jiu yao or Chili oil and Sriracha sauce. Most Vietnamese restaurants I’ve been don’t offer chili oil, which is why this place is a +1 in my books. We arrived after lunchtime at about 2PM-ish. Ever since they expanded, I’ve never had to wait too long for a seat.
Side note: I drove there – making it my first drive ever! Okay, back to food review.
The Deep Fried Chicken Fillet on Rice with Fish Sauce. The chicken was really tender and chewy. It had a really nice savoury taste which I liked. That one slice of orange was really pointless to me as it was really thin and not yummy at all. The Seafood Laksa dish came with a variety of seafood and it usually comes in a mixture of egg noodles (yellow, pictured above) and rice noodles (a thin white noodle). Some of the seafood included were squid, shrimp, crab meat and mussel. This dish is spicy – but if you’ve been reading my blog, you’d know that I can handle spicy food quite a bit, so this dish doesn’t taste spicy to me at all so I usually add additional chilli oil to my meal. As I don’t like rice noodles as much, I always request for just egg noodles and my mom complies with it. Thanks Mummy!
Do you prefer egg noodle or rice noodle? Let me know down in the comments!
To be frank, when I come to Asian places to eat, I usually pay cash because I’ve always experienced:
- The need to pay a surcharge upon using my debit/credit card at Asian places, or
- The place is sketchy and I don’t feel safe using my cards, or
- They simply don’t accept debit card but only cash and credit cards!
I’m not sure if Vietnam Noodle Star will have a surcharge when using a debit/credit card but I suggest paying via cash anyways!
Till next time, ♥
