How could it be possible that it was only my first time to Setia Walk last week... As much as I've heard so much about this place, it was a little out of place for me. However, I was glad that our meet up took place there last week. How serene and what a relaxing place this F&B are surrounded with.
Walking around, our eyes were busy checking out the F&B outlets... and having to decide what to eat, could be quite a task.
We walked passed Absolute Viet during dinner time, and it was packed with customers.
The boss came to asked if we require any recommendation. And since we opted food for sharing, he suggested this Assorted Dishes (small size) that comes with pork, chicken, fish, popiah, vermicelli, shredded carrot, cucumber, bean sprout and basil leaves. It's either basil leave or mint leave that will usually give vietnam roll a boost to the taste. The set comes with 5 pieces of rice paper, and additional rice paper comes at RM0.50 per piece.
When the Assorted Dishes was served, I was really impressed by the generous portion that comes with it. Real value for money and everything really tasted so good.
The boss was kind enough to offer to demonstrate to us 1 round on how to roll the rice paper vietnam roll.
Step 1. Mix the sauce that comes with peanut
Step 2. Dip the rice paper all around. Just dip, and its crucial to not be too wet. It was a mistake that I've done at home all this while, that we wet the rice paper totally, and this will eventually result in the rice paper being too soggy by the time the ingredients are placed onto the rice paper.
Step 3. Apply the sauce on top of the rice paper.
Step 4. Take a little of each ingredients, except for popiah. Little enough of each so that it doesn't "burst" the rice paper.
Step 5. Roll and wrap up the rice paper roll.

And the other dish recommended by the owner was the Tomato Noodle Soup. My first feedback, is it like 'tomato sauce' kind of taste? He assured that it doesn't really has the tomato taste... in fact its a little sourish, and taste a little of tom yam..
One of the best tasting noodle.. Am I exaggerating? Ain't so.. The soup base tasted extremely good, and it carries a tinge of asam laksa taste (not spicy though, and a little sourish). Totally appetizing. It comes with chicken, and egg, and I just loved the noodle that is the thick vietnam noodle. As explained by the owner, in Vietnam, there isn't mee available, everything is made using rice, like rice noodle, vermicelli type, rice roll. All rice based.

All 3 of us took the lemongrass tea. Nice.
The portion of the 2 food items ordered were sufficient for the 3 of us. Next, I hope to come with a bigger group, so that I can order more items to try. I can't wait to be back.
