Va Pho - Asian Canteen, Coimbatore

A tasting session at Va Pho Asian Canteen which has opened its door at Race Course area in Coimbatore. My first experience at Va Pho Chennai was simply amazing and the Coimbatore episode was greater than the previous one. Same quirky, colourful decor even though the place is bit smaller than Chennai. While Coimbatore cast a spell on me with it's pleasant weather, Va Pho added a charm to the lunch session with it's outdoor seating. Imagine gorging upon lip smackingly delicious food over a breezy weather <3

Chef kept us busy eating. He was sending out dish after dish which were so tasty. My personal picks would be

Rangoon Princess and Royale Madras for mocktails. The subtle guava flavour in the former and the cinnamon and tender coconut in the later were very refreshing.




Chicken Satay - Juicy chunks of chicken with roasted chilli flavour was delicious. Beef satay was equally good


Curried beef dimsum and Hargow with the spicy dips were yummy


I'm a big fan of their Va Pho Prawns. Juicy prawns cooked in a spicy sambal sauce is to die for. I also liked the Kam heaong Squid. Batter fried squid in curry masala was good.


Saigon Pho - A whole meal by itself with veggies, meat (chicken) and noodles was packed with so much of flavours.

Banana blossom salad with sweet and chilly dressing and crispy tofu tasted so good that even a fussy eater would eat it without any questions




Be it the spicy malay noodles cooked in coconut milk or the Va Pho rice or the Lhoti - Massaman (parottas with thai muslim curry) or the beef rendang curry, everything was a delight in its own terms






Ended the awesome lunch in a sweet way with tender coconut popsicle and chocolate mousse and falooda.



My heartfelt thanks to the team and wishing you guys a grand success. Cheers !!!
