Our greediness for sweetness, we've taken the Feuilleté À La Crème. The layers of crispy and fluffy pastry skin being sandwiched with the compact butter cream, this is the most marvellous dessert that I've ever tasted in my life. The chilled butter is smooth and thick in taste, coming with a nice aroma yet it's not filling at all.
We've enjoyed our meal at Pat' a Chou despite the bad coffee in Vietnam. I'm just a little regret that I've not takeaway the dessert back to Penang.

We've ordered the Chả Giò or the Fried Spring Rolls as our starter. The spring roll is made of meat and the size is just nice to be fitted into the mouth. It's quite tasty except that I find the skin is slightly too thick that it's chewy.
As May Fong doesn't take beef, thus we've decided to share the Phở Gà or Pho with Chicken Fillet. Pho is indeed a healthy dish whereby it's served together with a big plate of basil leaves, bean sprouts, lime and chili. The vegetable is then to be poured on top of the bowl of noodle soup that has been garnished with slices of steamed chicken and spring onions. I like the addition of basil, lime and chili that have not only added a nice aroma but the sourness and spiciness have as well enhanced the refreshing taste of the soup that it's very appetising. It's just a little disappointment that the chicken meat is slightly hard and dry.
Triggered by the deliciousness of the Phở Gà at Pho24, I'm eagerly to try out the Pho for once again before departing back to M'sia. My breakfast in Grand Hotel Saigon, I've decided to take the Phở Bò or the Beef Noodle. The soup tastes very refreshing from the natural sweetness of the cow bone with onion. The soup is not oily despite its strong taste and it as well doesn't contain any unease beefy smell. Being completed with the juicy and tender beef slices, I've definitely fell in love with my bowl of soup. The only disappointment is the rice noodle that is not so succulent if comparing to Pho24.
I've finally achieved my mission to try out the Phở Bò in Vietnam. The biggest problem of mine now, shall I fly to Ho Chi Minh again for the dish?
We've then ordered the Red Snapper Grilled with Salt and Spicy that is spelt in Vietnamese as Cá diêu hồng nướng muối ớt. The fish has a nice aroma of char-grilled and I love the burnt skin for its crispiness, despite it's unhealthy. The juicy and tender fish meat tastes a little salty, spicy and the deliciousness is enhanced by the mixture of salt, pepper seed and lime. The dipping sauce has added a refreshing taste to the fish itself.
This is a nice experience to try out the roadside stall in Ho Chi Minh even though I'm not really amazed by the food here.

We've then shared a plate of Cơm Chiên Ngon or the Fried Rice in Ngon Style. This is simply a rice-dish with ham and mixed vegetable. My personal opinion is that the Chef has intended to make it tasteless as it's served together with a bowl of soy sauce that has indeed added saltiness to enhance the tastiness of the fried rice.
We've enjoyed our meal in a cozy ambient that we'll definitely remember the deliciousness of the food here. I'm highly recommending this restaurant in HCM city!
