#DINEWITHME: BANH MI CAFE, PUCHONG

Hola #Saturday !
It's another blog on cafe review. Let's go #Vietnamese this week.

Hidden behind Columbia Asia Hospital in Bandar Puteri Puchong, this humble cafe serves cheap and delicious Vietnamese cuisines with very authentic flavors. Neither do I know this place actually exists although I've been staying around this area for the past few years. Thanks to my dear friend, Jess who brought me here. It was indeed a good place to dine for.

BANH MI offers an Indoor and Outdoor seating. If you prefer eating out while chilling with that stick of ciggie, outdoor is your best choice. When we arrived, seats are still available. However, as the day pass, more and more customers are walking in and it's already full by 2.00 pm. 

Indoor - Air conditioned




What makes this cafe so special? The food, of course! Let's flip through the menu and see what we've got.
















Hungry already? 

We left the ordering job to my friend and waited patiently for the food to arrived. How can we missed out the Iced Milk Coffee? Nah, we don't. All the guests are served a complimentary glass of iced cold welcome drinks upon arrival. I could hardly describe how the tea tasted like, but I guess it's some sort of their local everyday drinks. Just a plain-ol' tea, with zero sugar in it.

Complimentary drinks (Left) & 
*MUST TRY*
Cafe Sua Da / Iced Milk Coffee (RM 4.00)


The Iced Milk Coffee is extremely good I must say. A thick glass of Vietnamese coffee filtered through and slowly dripped into the glass, served with a glass of condensed milk and ice. Ahh...just a heavenly glass of cold coffee. 

If you like some refreshing drinks, try their signature Tra Chanh.

Tra Chanh / Signature Iced Lime Tea (RM 3.00)

Next, here comes the food. 

Skewers, skewers and SKEWERS! I couldn't say "NO" to them. Juicy pieces of succulent meat grilled to perfection. Tender lemongrass flavored pork meat; a bite after another. Paired with the peanut chili sauce is simply delicious.

Thit Nuong / BBQ Pork Skewers (RM 3.50 / stick)

Nothing beats a Vietnamese #baguette for lunch. Freshly baked baguette tucked with sliced pork terrine, fresh vegetable and herbs. Oh, one simple healthy meal.

Another popular dish here - Goi Cuon or known as Spring Rolls. Goi Cuon, is a Vietnamese dish traditionally consisting of pork, prawn, vegetables and other ingredients wrapped in Vietnamese banh trang / rice paper sheets.

Goi Cuon / Spring Rolls (RM 4.50 for 2 pcs)

Another highlight - Dau Ca Loc Nau Canh Chua, a Vietnamese version of Fish Soup cooked with lots of fresh vegetables and herbs. It is tangy with no fishy taste at all. One large bowl of soup that is perfect for a hot sunny day. 

Dau Ca Loc Nau Canh Chua (RM 14.50/set) comes with white rice

These four dishes are more than enough to feed 4 adults. It comes with a very huge portion for set meals. 


I'm pretty much satisfied with the food and drinks here and will definitely re-visit this cafe again the very next time. Service is quite fast and don't be surprised if a cute & pretty young Vietnamese lady serving your meals here. *GST applied*

#DINEWITHME: B-STORY CAFE | RATCHATHEWI (BANGKOK)

Sawadika 2017! Welcome to Bangkok.

Travelling around Bangkok is so much fun. What's more exciting is to hunt for cafes where the locals dine and chill! If flowers, plants and teddy bear are your thing, B-STORY CAFE is the place you gotta visit when you're in Bangkok.

Conveniently located, B-STORY CAFE is easy to spot. Take the stairs down from the Ratchathewi BTS station. The cafe is just right next to the station.



B-Story Cafe: Checked!

Offering Instagrammable moments, every corner of this cafe is stunning! Just like in a fairy tale; surrounded by green lush and pots of plants, I just wanted to chill here forever.

Are you looking for a cafe that you can dine in ease along with your pet pooch? Newly joined in the growing number of cafes in Puchong, BOW WOW CAFE is not just an ordinary cafe that serves coffee, cakes or pastries. As the name speaks for itself, BOW WOW CAFE is a cafe well designatedfor pets.

Located at Puchong Jaya just across the road from Papparich, you can easily spot the cafe even from far. However, parking may be limited especially during work hours or weekends.

#DINEWITHME: MANGKORN SEAFOOD | DIN DAENG (BANGKOK)

399 Bath to satisfy that craving for BBQ Seafood? Gosh...you must be kidding me!

Popular among the locals, MANGKORN SEAFOOD Restaurant is a heaven for all seafood lovers. Located in Din Daeng area, this restaurant offers All-You-Can-Eat Seafood BBQ including drinks for only 399 bath per person! Crack the crabs or shell the prawns as many as you can for up to 1 hour 45 minutes. One thing, beer aren't FREE FLOW now! Opsss...

To get here, the best way is to take a taxi ride from the nearest Huai Khwang MRT Station or direct from your destination. If you wanted to give a try by walking to the restaurant, be ready, it's going to be a painful job. I almost lost my breath being a dare devil trying to be "adventurous" that day..haha..
The crowds were already crazy when the time I arrived, around 8.30pm local time. We have to wait for a good 15 minutes before the next table is available. Smoking hot with no air-conditioner, MANGKORN SEAFOOD uses charcoal fire at each table to BB…
