When The Dots was still under construction, I wasn’t quite too sure what it was going to offer.
It turned out to be a tea, coffee & desserts place run by the adjacent restaurants, Ajisen Ramen and Little Tokyo Teppan in their space in Kumho. The place is small but the furniture and interior design are enticing.
Am a creature of habit so I don’t really try out new food unless introduced by friends. Unfortunately, my friends who loved to eat (READ: Katrina and Ria) have both left Saigon leaving me to explore by my lonesome. 😛
So anyway, the other day when it was raining out and I didn’t feel like going anywhere else for lunch, I decided to check out The Dots which actually offers Vietnamese lunch.
In honor of Katrina and Ria, I ordered the double broiled pork with shredded nori strips and Lemongrass tea (which the waiter recommended!), respectively.
The double broiled pork is delicious and yeah, I came back for it today. Katrina would have loved it. Although I don’t think she’d be happy with the portion. 😛
And the Lemongrass tea was a perfect combination to my hearty lunch. The tea was served with the Vietnamese version of puto seko (rice cookies) — am not sure what it’s called in Vietnamese though.
Note to self: will check if they’re selling the lemongrass teabags.
