Kuala Lumpur (VNA) – A restaurant only serving Pho (Vietnamese signature noodle soup) and other Vietnamese dishes opened in Selangor State, Malaysia, on July 26.

Rae Ng, Marketing Director of Singapore-based Select Group Limited, said the Pho Street Vietnamese Restaurant, or Pho Street for short, is the company’s first restaurant exclusively serving Pho and Vietnamese food in Malaysia.

According to Rae, most ingredients used for Pho are imported from Vietnam with a careful selection process to ensure the original taste of Vietnamese Pho.

The restaurant offers several versions of Pho like beef noodles with sliced rare steak, sliced well-done steak, beef meatballs, or flank steak.

Besides Pho, the restaurant also serves about 30 unique Vietnamese dishes like Vietnamese rice noodles and pork wrapped in rice paper, fried spring rolls, Hue-style barbecued shrimp.

Located in the Paradigm Mall in Petaling Jaya city, which is home to many restaurants serving Malay or Chinese dishes, Pho Street is hoped to succeed.

Rae said Pho is Vietnam’s most famous dish and is known worldwide and that would ensure the company’s success.

Ha Vi Cang, 29, from HCM City, is a chef for Pho Street. Cang has been working as a chef in HCM City for 10 years and two years for the Select Group Limited.

Cang said he hopes that Pho and other Vietnamese dishes are enjoyed in more countries across the world.

Select Group Limited has launched six Pho Street Vietnamese Restaurants in Singapore, Malaysia’s neighbouring country.-VNA
