Vietnamese Foodies serves the best Pho in Dubai.
If you have have been in Dubai for a few years, then you may have been following Lily, a Vietnamese chef who started by offering offers cooking workshops in Dubai on Facebook and then went on to open Vietnamese Foodies, her first restaurant in JLT. As big fans of Vietnamese cuisine, we have been fans for many years.
From expanding to Downtown Dubai and then the Timeout Market, they now have a brand new outpost at Nakheel Mall. We recently headed there to go enjoy the food, we love so much!
The restaurant is quite cozy and reminds us of the original branch in JLT. As lovers of Vietnamese food, we ordered Pho, their national dish of noodle soup. We picked Pho Bin Chin (21 AED), a beef noodle soup cooked traditionally from beef marrow bones up to 14 hours and served with beef tenderloin. The colorful dish was complemented by chillies, lemon, beansprouts and basil leaves from Lily’s garden beside the traditional hoisin sauce and chilli sauce. It was hearty and zingy and we can’t wait to go back for more.
The Green Papaya and Prawn Salad had the perfect balance of flavours and was sweet and savory with a crunchy texture. Another winner on the menu.
We also tried the duck sausage wrapped in betel lead and served with a dipping sauce. An interesting mix of flavors that worked well together.
The seabass steamed in banana leaf is another must-try. The delicately cooked fish is topped with a mix of herbs and comes with a side of vegetables.
The food is exactly how we remembered it, in fact even better!
Vietnamese Foodies is a charming and affordable neighborhood eatery with food made from the heart.
Vietnamese Foodies is located at Nakheel Mall, Palm Jumeirah
