Vietnamese food is one of the healthiest cuisines in the world. It is usually composed of noodles, plenty of fresh herbs and sauces on the side. We recently visited Viet Asia Restaurant in BF Homes Parañaque, just across Central. The six month old restaurant serves authentic Vietnamese dishes as it is owned by a pure vietnamese guy.
Viet Asia has limited space but they were able to maximize it by putting up a side table and chairs in front of a glass paneled open kitchen. It added an amusement while waiting for your food.
Below are some of Viet Asia’s food that you should try:
Goi Du Du or Green Papaya and Pomelo Salad (P220.00), the crunchy texture of the green papaya, pickled carrots, daikon and ponelo salad combinedpickled carrots and mint, basil, cilantro and fish sauce. Topped with shrimp, peanuts and fried onions
Goi Cuon or Spring Roll (P200.00) is a popular snack in Vietnam which is made of , lettuce, rice vermicelli, cucumber, mint, chive and shrimp nicely wrapped in rice paper. Plain and simple, I am thankful that it comes with peanut sauce on the side.
Cha Gio or Egg Roll (P180.00) made with ground chicken, shredded carrots, fungus and cellophane noodles, wrapped and deep-fried to a crispy perfection. It tasted like an ordinary lumpiang shanghai loaded with veggies. The fish sauce gave an extra kick of flavor.
Most of Viet Asia’s dishes has the same ingredients of veggies and herbs, the only differences is the choice of meat. You can have the Bun Nem Nuong or Grilled Pork Meat Ball Vermicelli Noodle (P290.00) if you want your vermicelli noodle with pork meatballs or have the Bun Thit Nuong Cha Gio or Bbq Pork and Eggroll Vermicelli Noodle (P300.00) for the grilled prok tenderloin and eggroll. Both dishes comes with peanuts and scallion oil. A pure healthy goodness in each bowl!
My favorite among that dishes is the Garlic Noodles (P220.00) a very popular vietnamese cross-over dish that is loaded with butter and garlic flavor with a touch of cilantro, add sriracha for an extra twist.
Mango Sticky Rice (P220.00), glutinous sticky rice, seasoned with salty-sweet coconut milk topped with sweet mango cubes. Sweet, silky, creamy spots you want in a satisfying dessert. A nice and simple way to get your sweet fix.
Café Sua Da or Vietnamese Iced Coffee (P120.00), the coffee ice cubes added to this drink was brilliant, it maintain the coldness of the coffee without making it watery. The condensed milk sweetens the coffee.
Viet Asia also offers Party Trays good for up to 45 pax. Just order them one day in advance with 50% down payment.
