One of the activities we missed most after returning to Asia is going for Vietnamese food. Albeit dining out in the States generally cost more than home cooked food, Vietnamese in general is inexpensive and within reach in the neighborhood.
Longing for the taste of Pho, we explored La Lot at KL Pavilion on one fine evening. Operated at level 6 along with other fine dining restaurants, La Lot features a fusion menu, specializing in Vietnamese cuisine, in addition to pasta and grills with Vietnamese twist.
Getting too occupied with our little ones, we made the order without even flipping through the menu. The chief of that evening was very well-versed with their menu and helped to recommend for starter. We opted for Vietnamese spring rolls to begin with.
For the mains, two of us picked a bowl of Pho each, they were Chicken/Shrimps Pho and Beef Pho. I went for my favorite - Bun Bo Hue (I was not certain what was written on menu but I guess an experienced waitstaff can help you to identify) and my brother-in-law gamed for their signature beef dishes and steamed rice.
The starter arrived within minutes, followed by our mains, one by one.
Chicken & Shrimps Pho - my SO commented that it was almost as good as what we had in the States. Generous in offering the vegetables - basil leaves, bean sprouts, lime wedges
Beef Pho - my sister loved it! She finished everything, up to the last drop of soup! Her bowl was completely empty and dried. And she complimented her pho thrice within 24 hours. Unbelievable.
Bun Bo Hue - The soup was fine but not what I had in mind. I was hoping for more pungent, tangy and strong flavor. Beef slices were perfect and the noodles were smooth and soft.
Beef & Steamed Rice - perfect for my brother-in-law. He liked it.
In Malaysia, La Lot certainly offers a great experience for Vietnamese fans. Ambiance was fabulous, service was great but would be greater if all the waitstaff are well-trained for what they serve. English-speaking waitstaff is a must to better serve the crowd goers.
Going back for more? Trust me, my sister will whenever she is craving for Vietnamese!
