Ara Vietnamese Noodles @ Damansara Jaya

This fuss-free spot welcomes customers with bowl after bowl of Vietnamese noodles, both soupy & dry. A basic beef or chicken pho costs RM8; a more elaborate version with beef brisket, tendon & tripe is RM12.50. You'll also find 'hu tieu bo kho' (RM8; beef stew noodles) & 'bun thit xao sa' (RM8; cold vermicelli topped with grilled pork); the 'hu tieu nam vang' (RM8) hot pork meat & liver noodles in a sweet broth is comfortingly similar to what some Malaysian Chinese kopitiam stalls offer. But there's more than noodles - traditional spring rolls, pork sausage skewers, fried pancakes, lemongrass chicken with rice, plus desserts of creme caramel & grilled bananas, & (oh, hello!) Vietnam's 333 beer & iced coffee. Honest fare with no pretensions.

Ara Vietnamese Noodles was formerly a stall at N-Kee Restaurant in Ara Damansara. This month, it unveiled its first full-fledged outlet at 45, Jalan SS22/11, Damansara Jaya (congratulations!). Open Tues-Sun, 10am-3pm, 530pm-9pm. Tel: 016-222 2480

  6. Bet that tastes heavenly, real exotic with all the fragrant herbs. So which did you have? RM8 or RM12.50? RM8 is fine but I would think RM12.50 is a little on the high side for a place like this but that, of course, would depend on how much extras they give.
