So glad that I got to meet with Fay; a lovely blogger (go check out her blog!) for this Bites n Sips sesh. We actually planned to have a cafe date from the month of January and only yesterday we got the chance to finally meet up. 😅 We know each other from blog years ago and then became a real friend in real life! Now baby how fun blogging is, right? 😎
We decided to try this new cafe located in Riverson – The Walk; Hello Stranger.
We arrived exactly during lunchtime so we decided to ordered some quite heavy meals.
On our table: Banh Mi (Vietnamese Baguette) Lemongrass Grilled Chicken (RM13.90), Banh Mi Teriyaki Chicken (RM13.90), Chicken Summer Roll (RM10) with Caramel Macchiato (RM9) and Iced Hazelnut Latte (RM12).
My first impression on the baguette was, it looks dry and I thought it would taste just like any other cheap sandwich but I was wrong. I never been to Vietnam yet but I believed that banh mi has brought me to Vietnam cuz it tasted so good with strong flavors of asian fusion; juicy chicken & fresh veggies. We both highly recommend you to try this banh mi if you’re planning to visit this cafe. 😋 Personally, I’m not a fan of spring/summer roll but it tasted great after a dip into the sauce.
Fay’s boyfriend came and joined us a bit later, so they ordered another banh mi and some cakes. Carrot cheese cake which tasted so-so & Napoleon pastry-cake that I don’t really wanted to eat because of the hard and crumble textures 😂. Tried Fay’s viet phin iced coffee, and it was the best strong coffee ever! On my next visit, definitely will picked banh mi and viet phin! 😃
We ate and talked for a good two hours and definitely will set another date for another cafe sesh. There’s a lot more great new cafes to hunt. 😁 Next time, hopefully Jessica will be able to join us. 😊
That’s all for my Bites n Sips series this time and till my next post!
