Highland Viet offers a voyage through Vietnamese soul food, with hits and misses along the way; the soupier recipes fare best – bowls of noodles with pork trotters and quail eggs, as well as fish with tomatoes in a clear, tangy broth, supply sufficient satisfaction.

The aromatic braised pork with hard-boiled eggs also delivers what most patrons might expect. But we’d skip Highland’s banh mi, a timid & tepid imitation of the vibrant Vietnamese sandwich and its dynamic dimensions.

Boiled rice with chicken is a flop too – dry, bland grains, alongside meat that tastes past its prime. And while the papaya smoothie sounds like a tempting thirst-quencher, it’s a touch too sweet and not quite natural-tasting enough. Most dishes cost between RM10 & RM12.
