It has been almost 10 years since the last time I have visited this Vietopia Vietnamese restaurant. It used to be one of my favorite restaurants and I visited quite often with my ex-colleagues during lunch time. It was really nice to come back to this restaurant. The decor and atmosphere have not changed much. With French songs played softly while I was enjoying my lunch here again, it definitely brought me nice memories.
Mix Appetizers - Rp. 55.000
The mix appetizers supposedly contained of Banh cuon (fresh spring rolls filled with shrimp, chicken, egg & vegetables), Chao tom (grilled shrimp paste rolled around sugar cane), Cha gio (fried spring rolls filled with minced chicken) and Cha cua (crab cakes). Unfortunately, the Chao tom was out of order. My favorite, for sure, was Cha gio - the fried spring rolls.
Bun Bo Xao - Rp. 50.000
Traditional Vietnamese vermicelli dish served with grilled NZ beef mixed with lettuce, onion, garlic, peanuts and nuoc sauce. The nuoc sauce which made from water, fish sauce, lime juice, vinegar, palm sugar, lemon grass, chili and garlic tasted pretty mild for the spiciness and tanginess. I personally prefer pungent taste for nuoc sauce.
