Vietnamese Cuisine – Co Do @ Mid Valley Megamall

Co Do serves authentic Vietnamese Cuisine and has won several accolades including one from Tatler Magazine Malaysia. Co Do is located on the 3rd floor of Mid Valley Megamall, same floor as GSC. Don’t get confused by Little Vietnam, which is located besides Co Do. Co Do is actually the one on the right, in which you have to take the staircase to go up to the restaurant.

Co Do's Set B
Clockwise from top: Dragonfruit Salad, Beef Ball Soup Hu Tieu, Tomato Fried Rice, Lotus Root Pancake and Vietnamese Spring Roll

Co Do's Soya Bean and Iced Lime Tea
Co Do’s Soya Bean and Iced Lime Tea come with Set B as well

Co Do’s Dim Sum – Trio & Main Course Set for Two which comes out to about RM35 for two person have four sets for the diners to choose from. We had Set B which consists of Dragonfruit Salad, Lotus Root Pancake, Vietnamese Spring Roll, Served with Tomato Fried Rice & Chicken or Beef Ball Soup Hu Tieu and two glasses of either Iced Lime Tea or Soya Bean. It is quite a steal as the price is RM 35.90 for all these, more than enough for two person.

The Dragonfruit Salad is delicious and fresh, even though mixing bits of fried squid with white Dragonfruit to create the salad is a little unusual. Lotus Root Pancake is crispy and savory, while the Vietnamese Spring Roll is as good. Tomato Fried Rice is delicious — the rice is savory, seasoned with garlic and contains bits of yam, it almost tastes like yam rice. Beef Ball Soup Hu Tieu is also delectable, as the beef ball is aplenty and irresistible while the noodles are quite scrumptious.

Co Do's Soda with Sour Plum
Co Do’s Soda with Sour Plum

Soda with Sour Plum is likely the biggest rip off as the Soda is F&N Soda water added with half a glass of sour plum.

Co Do's Vitamin C Burst

Vitamin C Burst consists of Orange, Calamansi & Starfruit. It surely has a lot of Vitamin C, for those health-conscious people.

Co Do's Tamarind Seafood Noodle Soup

Tamarind Seafood Noodle Soup is quite mediocre compared to any of the food in Set B.

Co Do’s Hanoi Chicken Fragrant Soup Mee

Hanoi Chicken Fragrant Soup Mee is also so-so and there’s nothing to shout about.

Overall, the Dim Sum – Trio & Main Course Set for Two is a steal and you should order this as it is not only worth every single cent you will spend, the food are amazing, especially the scrumptious dim sum.

Restoran Chao Zhou does not have a really wide range of dim sum but it is sufficient enough. The dim sum here are fresh and hot but gets cold quickly inside the air-conditioned restaurant as the place is quite small. Instead, one should have the dim sum in the outdoor area of the restaurant.

Restoran Pun Chun's Wantan Noodles
Restoran Pun Chun’s Wantan Noodles

Wantan Noodles is not quite worth it if you order pure wantan only as they only give you four pieces of wantan while the normal one has three wantan plus char siew. Somehow, the char siew is quite stiff and as good as the wantan.
