Eaton Viet Thai Restaurant, Tanjung Bungah - Penang

It's been quite awhile since I've eaten Vietnamese food. But I'm glad I manage to visit Eaton Viet Thai Restaurant, it was indeed a delightful meal with one fiery occasion. This is Junnie, the proprieter of this restaurant with her husband who is absent at this time. They just moved back in Penang not long ago from UK. They had 5 restaurants (if I remembered right) in UK and recently sold off to come back and retire in our humble Penang Island. Junnie is originally from Penang and the husband from UK. You can see from the banner and the business card later on, the couple's picture is right on there.
See how long is the menu.
Let's get right on to the food. Some of the dishes are taken from the promotion deal voucher. I have missed the vietnamese spring roll and finally get to sink my teeth on it and it was really nice. The prawn as you can see through the skin is a big one. The lemongrass chicken however was just alright for me.There's also the salad which is on the sourish side because of its sauces.

This minced meat and prawn rolled on sugarcane is also one of Vietnamese special dishes.  Looks like a large matchstick. You should try this. I have tasted better ones but this is also delish. Really depends on individual taste buds. The fried spring rolls is crunchy and filled up with veg, meat fillings. I loved it!

The fiery occasion is on this delicious curry lamb fellow. But it really put our tongues on fire, we had to call for help and Junnie was kind enough to simmer it down for us to a level of spiciness we all could eat. What a laugh!
This is highly recommended Belacan Chicken dish. Crunchy on the outside, tender on the inside with a nice belacan flavour.
Overall the bill came around to RM69.There are alot of varieties to choose from and that would be from a second visitation. The place is cosy for small gatherings or a hangout place to chat and eat.

Address: 27, Jalan Sungai Kelian, 11200 Tanjung Bungah, Penang.
