Do An is a restaurant that offers authentic Vietnamese cuisines. Most of their ingredients (except for fresh, perishable ones like vegetables) were imported directly from Vietnam to preserve its authenticity.
The place wasn’t so small, but it wasn’t as spacious either. It was dimly lit towards the corners of the restaurant, and lightly decorated with an oriental touch.
Goi Cuon – IDR37,500++
These are the classic Vietnamese spring rolls! Perfect for the health-conscious foodies! The spring rolls comes in quite a big size per piece, yet I feel like there’s not enough meat and too much vegetables inside. A bit to dry and bland in taste, yet very refreshing from the fresh vegatables at the same time.
Pho Bo – IDR45,000 – IDR 65,500++
What is a Vietnamese restaurant without its signature dish – Pho? Pho is a bowl of rice noodle soup served with aromatic and flavorful broth with lean slices of fresh meat. Do An serves a variety of Pho bowls with quite a huge portion too!
Banh Mi – IDR35,500 – IDR49,500++
Here’s another popular classic Vietnamese dish! I love the texture of their bread – not too hard nor too soft. It’s crispy on the outside yet still easy to chew and soft towards the inside. They also use a special sauce made of chicken liver. Their Banh Mi was quite nice but a bit bland to my taste.
I honestly forgot what the name of this dessert was, but I really RECOMMEND it! It’s like the Vietnamese version of Indonesian’s traditional dessert – Bubur Sum Sum. The texture was soft yet thick and very aromatic – not too sweet to! There were bits of sweet corn inside that adds crunch to the whole dish. I LOVED IT!
Overall the food was pleasant. The food was a bit bland for my taste, yet it’s still pleasurable. They mostly comes in huge sizes too!
