Felice Hoa at Mont Kiara: Restaurant review
This low-key Vietnamese cafe serves a solid selection of Saigon street-food favourites – Felice Hoa’s pho bo proves notable for its rustic, coarse-textured beef balls, while its banh cuon is reasonably enjoyable too, with well-seasoned ground pork rolled in smooth steamed rice sheets.
We also like the lemongrass chicken rice platter, thanks to the succulent, flavoursome meat; the only genuine lapse is the banh mi – it’s an interesting version, relying on tender ciabatta bread instead of a baguette, but it’s hobbled by slices of marinated pork & a garlic mayo spread that both taste strangely out of place, failing to complement the sandwich’s other constituents. Prices are nonetheless fair for Mont Kiara; a meal here shouldn’t surpass RM30 per customer.
