Brunching at Viet Kitchen with Char! It was a much needed girls catch up over some really good Vietnamese food from chef, Peter Cuong Franklin. I’ve heard about Viet Kitchen located in the lobby of the Nexxus Building on Connaught Rd but didn’t know how nice the space was or how good the food was. As I was eating, I even forgot that I was at the lobby of an office building. There’s a large bar in the center of the dining floor, private rooms, and an open kitchen to watch all the action! The place is bright, beautiful and spacious. Now lets get to the Saturday brunch. The special brunch menu is only offered on Saturdays and public holidays from 11am-5pm.
We came for a tasting to check out the brunch menu, but I still had to order the pho! We shared a bowl of the signature Saigon Beef Pho HK$98. I really liked the rich yet clean broth. The broth was incredibly flavorful and comforting. The portion is rather big, and even though the two of us split it we still couldn’t finish one bowl.
Fresh Lime Soda, HK$38.
They offer the Bahn Mi Sandwich with French fries (or salad) for HK$88 on their brunch menu. A pretty awesome deal! We didn’t order this one….but got a preview of it.
The broth in the front is the beef pho dipping broth for the Pho French Dip HK$98 which we did order (see below!)
Lemongrass Beef Bahn Mi Sandwich with a fresh side salad! I loveeeeed the bahn mi. I actually liked it even more than the pho and our other brunch option. The baguette was hot, crispy and uber crunchy. The beef was tender, flavorful and juicy. Super fresh, clean and tasty.
I ordered the Sriracha Bloody Mary as well for only HK$48!!!! WHAT?! That’s so cheap. I’m coming back to get this brunch deal. They also have other selected glasses of wines for HK$48 during their weekend brunch. Score for those who like to drink in the day time.
Last but not least was the traditional Viet Big Breakfast HK$108 which is a twist on the usual continental, American or British breakfast. It came with a thick cut of sirloin steak, 2 eggs, pate, cucumbers, tomatoes, and garlic-y sliced baguette.
