Zao Vietnamese Cafe
Fuente Circle, Eastwood City, E. Rodriguez, Jr. Avenue, Bagumbayan, Libis, Quezon City
A friend and I went to this place for dinner before we had our Billiard Match (Yes, serious, I wanna beat him and have that victory — news? I did win!! hahahahaha). We have chosen Zao coz 1st it has soup (my friend was craving for it) & because it’s new.
The place is nice, cozy & looks classy. The color combination & the design is pretty cool as well, very inviting.
Anyway, here are what we ordered:
- Deep-Fried Catfish with a Spicy Ginger Sauce (Php 195)
yummy! Though I’m not really fond of taking the fish meat out of its bones hehehe. So tedious! I like this dish and I think this is the only main dish that I ate.
We also ordered the beef stew (picture below). I wasn’t able to take note of the price of it hahaa so can’t put the price but I guess this is because it is forgettable for me. 1st taste of the beef is good but after 3 bites, I didn’t like it anymore hehe.
- Bottomless Iced Tea (Php 95)
available in 3 flavors – Jasmine, Lychee & Tamarind. I tried the tamarind and it tasted good, love it
- Seafood Pho (Php225)
A soup that has prawns, calamari, fish fillet, fish balls, fresh vegetables & rice noodle. I don’t know if this is the cafe’s specialty but I believe that it is. Coz it tasted good and looks really unique & vietnamese. Also served with this condiments (picture below)
- Steamed Jasmine Rice (Php55)
Just a simple steamed rice but they serve the better type of rice so it’s all good.
Overall, it’s a good experience. This might not be one of my favorites but it’s okay, reasonably priced & they serve nice food.
