Different tastebuds with different tongues; you're the eater and you're the judge... What I share here is simply the passion towards food and drinks.

For side dishes, we've taken the Traditional Smoked Duck传统烟熏鸭 and the Taiwanese Popcorn Chicken台式咸酥鸡. The duck meat is served with a sweet sauce that is garnished with white sesame. The thick sliced of duck meat tastes quite hard that it seems to have lost its juiciness and I find it quite tasteless. On the other hand, I'm definitely the fans for their chicken cube as the outer skin is crispy while it's still hot, tender and juicy at the inner and the saltiness is really appealing. It's sinful as the skin or the chicken fat is needed to enhance the taste of this dish. Anyway, I just can't stop myself and here goes piece by piece...
On a revisit, Attila has tried their Tonkotsu Ramen豚骨拉面 that is topped with the Char Siew, flavored egg, black fungus, bamboo shoots, spring onions and the garlic oil. The soup tastes very thick and I'm indeed dislike the strong porky's taste. Anyway, it matches Attila's appetite.
I don't really find their Ramen to be outstanding as I've a feeling that the noodle is similar to the ordinary instant noodle that I find it to be quite soft instead of succulent. However, I'm amazed by their Taiwanese Popcorn Chicken that I've loved to have them for my snacks.

The Run Forrest Run is as well in the menu whereby it's the mixture of fresh oranges, strawberries and non-fat raspberry frozen yogurt. One small joke about this beverage that we'll run to toilet after the drink ;)
I'm happy that I've finally tried out the Bubba Gump that has been Su's favourite. At least, this seems to be a decision making that I'm not the big fans for their shrimps.
To begin with starter, the shop owner has recommended the Vietnam Combinations(濱海)越式拼盤 that consists of the thinly sliced fresh vegetable, rice noodle, fried fish and grilled meats that include pork, chicken and beef. It comes with the rice papers that feels alike plastic and two types of dipping sauces whereby the 1st is the mixture of sweet and chili sauces that is then garnished with grounded peanuts and the 2nd is the sour sauce that is sort of lemon juice. How to start? Firstly, soften the rice paper in the plain water. Secondly, rub a layer of the sweet sauce that has been mixed properly onto the rice paper. Then, put on a little portion of each ingredients from the platter. Please don't be greedy or you'll have a hard time to roll the rice paper! Finally, roll it up and here is the delicious spring roll. Additionally, the platter comes with Vietnam Fried Spring Roll越式香炸春卷. The spring roll is delicious and I like especially the crispy outer skin.
The owner has then urged us to try their Vietnam Rice Paper Roll越式米纸卷. The spring roll is quite similar with our 1st starter except that it's not DIY (Do It Yourself) and it comes without sauce inside the rice paper. The fresh vegetable slices have really completed the spring roll that it tastes not only delicious but also very refreshing.
For the main courses, Attila has decided to take the Vietnam Beef Teriyaki with Fried Egg Rice越式香茅牛肉煎蛋飯 while I'm going for the Vietnam Lemon Grass Triple Taste Noodle Soup越式香茅三味湯粉 that is served with Pork, Chicken and Beef. The meat has absorbed the smell and the taste of the lemongrass completely that they taste very delicious in the mouth. Attila and I like especially the beef as it's juicy and succulent. The chicken tastes good as well except that the oily skin appears to be a little sinful while the pork meat is slightly too dry. My plain noodle soup is a little light in taste but it has a nice aroma from the Thai Basil leaves. I hate the raw bean sprouts into the soup but the owner insists that I should add them in.
Ending the lunch with a cup of Vietnam Coffee越式咖啡, I find the coffee to be too sweet for me. This is not my cup of coffee whereby the thick creamer has covered the bitter coffee's taste that I'm used to. Anyway, it's still a nice experience as the stainless steel dipping container is a specialty from Vietnam.
Vietnamese food is something that I'm missing to have in Penang. This is a great and delicious experience that I'm happy to have.
