Travel Date: August 20, 2012
My sister and her boyfriend plus me, went to Suria KLCC (this is the mall right next to the Petronas Towers) after taking our brunch and bath back at my sister's flat. I'll be meeting my dear friend Aimee who is working in KL as an IT Recruiter. Prior to my visit here, she informed me of some "things" that she wants me to buy and bring it for her. We agreed to meet 1pm and while waiting for her, we are looking for a backpack for my sister's bf.
Around 1:30pm we finally met her. I was ecstatic seeing her and as her promised to me, she's buying me lunch! Yey! My sister and her bf left us in KLCC and we will meet my sister later. She needs first to drop off her bf to the bust stop going to SG.
And so we scout the KLCC mall for a place to eat. Since it's already noon, most of them are jam packed. All the good restaurants or even fast food chains are brimming with customers. We decided to go way up of the mall to scout for a nice restaurant. Never mind if they are not that good so as long we can take a seat and we can fill our tummies with food. We chance upon Du Viet and luckily we score a table.

You can check their website to view the complete menu.
|BBQ Lemongrass Chicken Chop (Ga Nuong)|
You're probably wondering why there's two pictures of food. Well, they are the same dish and I can't help but compared the picture of my dish from their website versus the actual dish that was served to me. The veggies on the left are far fresh looking compared to mine. Good thing, I love the chicken chop since it's soft and easy to chew. I can easily cut through the meat. No bones to slow me down when I continuously attack my chicken.
My friend's lunch....
|Actual Beef Brisket Stew with Rice (Thit Bo Kho)|

I don't remember the exact taste but I do know that the beef is tender making it easy to chew on this dish. The color of the beef and the sauce is different from the actual versus the one on the website. Hmmm...
|Fried Vietnamese Spring Rolls or Imperial Rolls from Du Viet's Website|
Then the surprise friend put these in the table:

Overall my dining experience in this place is okay. It's like eating in a fast food joint but with a fancier environment and menu plus a waiter to get your order and serve the food. The food is so-so, nothing fab or exciting. I'm just glad that I was able to put food in my tummy plus spending quality lunch time with my two friends in a different country so who am I to complain?
