Co Do, Midvalley

Needless to say, food blogs influence most to try places which otherwise look forbidden or just too quiet to attempt. I’m no different. Or should I say, I'm weak. I get influenced all the time. Don’t believe? When there’s a chance ask to see my light purse and bulging tummy.

Located on a higher floor with stairs to boot, it is quite safe to say I may never eat here (most friends can vouch for my dislike of stairs). Then came this You Get What You Give .. Sometimes and later, this Ipoh Mali Talak Sombong. My interest aroused and tummy craved, legs, no choice. Let’s do some climbing.

2 of us. A set meal will do but which one?
Dragonfruit in salad always look so exotic so let’s do this. *both palms raised* Alright guilty. The idea of having vibrant colours in my pictures was uppermost in my mind then. (-_-)Iced Lime Tea. Though menu mentioned there is a choice between this and soya bean milk, we were not asked. Maybe they ran out of the latter? Good though.(Clockwise from top right of the picture below)
Vietnanmese Spring Rolls. Next visit I will order extra of these.
Dragonfruit Salad. Ah, good choice for photography, no? Tastewise, somehow I find it a tad too err .. salty? 0.o Better if the dressing is lighter.
Lotus Root Pancakes. I detected a 'cockcroachy' smell but Phitoy gladly took all. Hmm.. it's a just me moment again. *sigh*
Beef Ball Soup Hu Tieu. A bowl of comfort with bouncy balls but personally I would prefer less bean sprouts as I dislike the overpowering ‘raw green’ taste. Unlike the few Vietnamese restaurants I’ve been, the raw ‘taugeh’ was not served separately.Tomato Fried Rice. Maybe it was the time I took to position the plate all around the table trying to capture the best lighting (sounds like real pro eh. Ahem.) or maybe it was the cool air breeze (from air-conditioners). It was a bit cold. I prefer my fried food (especially rice and noodles) piping hot.Bill & Address:-

I was served the bean sprouts separately the last time I ate there. Maybe they ran out of plates! LOL....

tummythoz,
With new camera, you come back with more photos eh? hehe.

I'm just curious. Tomato fried rice. Fried rice with tomato got so nice meh? I've never tried it before. Miri, we don't have this...

Judy said...

I always think the places you go to are always good value for money. In this case, though I can see the food is very nice but wah, MR$17 per set meal before service charge and tax is a bit expensive wor.

I do like the look of the springrolls....ok lau nuah already.

Price wise reasonable leh....

MeiyeN said...

was at little vietnam weeks ago and will definitely try co do soon.. ;) i find their food good and very reasonable (price) too!!! :D

Christy said...

Dragonfruit salad? Hmmm...new idea...:)
I should probably suggest this place to my friends the next time I am in KL:D

"Joe" who is constantly craving said...

new camera? yes? no?
haha dirt cheap for two lar..40bucks..

Tummythoz said...

wmw, careless staff broke too many? =P Nvm, next time I'll insist.

kok, it was ok but don't remember any strong tomato taste. Whether tomato fried rice really good or not, have to ask our dear Fried Rice Queen - babe_kl. ;)

judy, for the ambience, convenience and quality, think the price is reasonable. Afterall, just a bowl of noodle without much fanfare is priced at almost RM6 at the shopping mall's foodcourt.

new kid on the blog, waaa this Penangite sounds like quite 'kam-chiak'-a.

meiyen, did Little Vietnam before. Quite a number of similar dishes but Co Do's ambience and food presentation better.

christy, hello! *wave at new guest*

NJoe, old camera. Actually noticed old new quality's d same. It's d one who uses it that needs improvement. =(

Honey Star said...

The lotus root pancakes macam very best, but smells cockcroachy?? :S Hehe, im not a fan of overpowering "raw green" taste too!

Jackson said...

sounds like the food wasn't that great, rite?

FireHorse said...

Hi old friend, came here make delivery a cup of cham for you, hug, hug.

Mark said...

Nice presentation, but sound's not very suit your taste... mnn... but I think the dragon fruit salad kind of creative.

Precious Pea said...

I'm tempted to try but Hubby not keen ler. Who is willing to check this place out with me?

Tummythoz said...

honey star, could be just me. Afterall, almond tong-sui or drink which happens to be most people favourite smells extremely cockcroahy to me. Bleh.

jackson, think expectations too high. Blame wmw & jason's pix! Then again, I don't mind going again.

firehorse, no wonder my blog smells sooo good! TQ TQ.

mark, most Viet restaurants do serve that dragonfruit salad. Just had it at Bongsen, KLCC.

precious pea, waaa President of Jap Food Fans (did I get the title wrong?) has spoken! *quickly step aside before get trampled by the club's members stampede*

rokh said...

wow, the price seems good, compare to the vietnamese food i had in klcc recently, which is much more with less item!

Tummythoz said...

rokh, Bongsen? Different target market-maa.

Precious Pea said...

President not me la...it's Lyrical lemongrass! Haha..

jason said...

Oh... we ordered the Set A and we love them. Eh, my pix on Co Do were grayish (blame the dim lighting).

Tummythoz said...

precious pea, oopsy daisy ..

jason, I know. Can feel your satisfaction from your post!
