I passed by O Banh Mi during lunch time on a weekday the week prior, and saw that it was packed with customers. So attempted a visit during Sunday last week, when I saw a less busy crowd.
Their core product is as per name of the brand name where Banh Mi in Vietnamese means all kinds of bread.
|O Teriaky. Price-RM11|
I took the Dry Grilled Chicken Vietnamese Noodle. I must say that the portion is really big for the price I paid. Definitely enough for 2 share... The bowl of noodle is filled with teriyaki chicken, cucumber, spring roll, lots of mint and basil, bean sprout, lettuce, garnish with peanuts and fried onions, and their home made fish sauce. I love the texture of the vietnamese noodle, that tasted absolutely fresh. It has the right thickness of noodle that I absolutely enjoy.

Total bill came up to RM33.90 for 2 person. Fulfilling and very much worth the price paid, in return for such satisfactory quality of food.

Having started its operation since 2009, Shisha Lounge has survived through its years of operation, when I see many F&B outlets has changed its operator, around the SOHO Solaris area.
I was somewhat convinced to come try food at Shisha Lounge last weekend, and was told that they served really good tasting Iranian food. In addition to this, they also served other varieties like Italian, Korean, Western like food.
I ought to say, this is one of the best food discovery, as I was almost in heaven, when I savor this one of the best tasting food I've ever tried. Hey, where have I been?
We started with the Gheymeh and Eggplant stew. Gheymeh is a Persian stew and in this option that we ordered, consist of eggplant and split peas. I love the thickness of this stew, that just goes so well with our rice. Eggplant is loved by Iranians and known as "the potato of Iran"..
|Gheymeh & Eggplant Stew. Price-RM28|
|Yummeh Saffron rice..|
A point to note, we ordered the Kebab, and the wait for a little long.. I think slightly around 20.. but but, it was definitely worth the wait, as the meat has to be slowly barbecued, upon order.
We had the Barg Kebab which means Fillet Kebab, which is a Persian styled barbecued lamb, chicken or beef. We ordered the beef, whereby its cut to stripes and marinated in onion and mix herbs. It was so flavorful, and with it being barbecued, the taste was even more enhanced, and the meat was so tender. A little sourish flavor that came with squeeze of lime onto the beef, alleviate the taste a little more.

We tried the mango salad. Despite having used mango quality that isn't the best, perhaps due to seasonality of this fruit, the overall combination deserves a thumbs up. The salad is served in a crispy basket.

Overall, I had a very good meal at Fusion Haven Cafe, and I'm not saying this just because I know the owner. And a point to note is that, with the standard of food served, the price is way too reasonable. Perhaps one thing to thank is that the high competitive F&B environment in this area. Whatever it is, it will be to the advantage of the customers. Yay!
Being located at a highly busy street (and of course, no business owner would like to run their business at area with ample parking, which would mean that, its probably a dead area), do look out for police station on the right, followed by TM Point. Fusion Haven is just few doors away.

We needed a light meal, so we ordered just 1 meat, 1 vegetable and garlic naan to go with it.
|Garlic Naan. Price - RM4.90|
|Spinach with Dhall. Price-RM12.90|
The spices used for the red snapper fish was a true thumbs up. Its pretty spicy, however, its something that I want to bear with as the fragrant of the spices is something I couldn't resist.
|Red Snapper with Samba. Price-RM15.90|
We ordered the natural sweet lassi. As much as its called sweet lassi, the sweetness is just nice.
Overall a thumbs up experience. I would definitely return here with a bigger group so that I can try more of its other dishes.

How could it be possible that it was only my first time to Setia Walk last week... As much as I've heard so much about this place, it was a little out of place for me. However, I was glad that our meet up took place there last week. How serene and what a relaxing place this F&B are surrounded with.
Walking around, our eyes were busy checking out the F&B outlets... and having to decide what to eat, could be quite a task.
We walked passed Absolute Viet during dinner time, and it was packed with customers.
The boss came to asked if we require any recommendation. And since we opted food for sharing, he suggested this Assorted Dishes (small size) that comes with pork, chicken, fish, popiah, vermicelli, shredded carrot, cucumber, bean sprout and basil leaves. It's either basil leave or mint leave that will usually give vietnam roll a boost to the taste. The set comes with 5 pieces of rice paper, and additional rice paper comes at RM0.50 per piece.
When the Assorted Dishes was served, I was really impressed by the generous portion that comes with it. Real value for money and everything really tasted so good.
The boss was kind enough to offer to demonstrate to us 1 round on how to roll the rice paper vietnam roll.
Step 1. Mix the sauce that comes with peanut
Step 2. Dip the rice paper all around. Just dip, and its crucial to not be too wet. It was a mistake that I've done at home all this while, that we wet the rice paper totally, and this will eventually result in the rice paper being too soggy by the time the ingredients are placed onto the rice paper.
Step 3. Apply the sauce on top of the rice paper.
Step 4. Take a little of each ingredients, except for popiah. Little enough of each so that it doesn't "burst" the rice paper.
Step 5. Roll and wrap up the rice paper roll.
|Assorted Dishes. Price-RM24.90|

And the other dish recommended by the owner was the Tomato Noodle Soup. My first feedback, is it like 'tomato sauce' kind of taste? He assured that it doesn't really has the tomato taste... in fact its a little sourish, and taste a little of tom yam..
One of the best tasting noodle.. Am I exaggerating? Ain't so.. The soup base tasted extremely good, and it carries a tinge of asam laksa taste (not spicy though, and a little sourish). Totally appetizing. It comes with chicken, and egg, and I just loved the noodle that is the thick vietnam noodle. As explained by the owner, in Vietnam, there isn't mee available, everything is made using rice, like rice noodle, vermicelli type, rice roll. All rice based.
|Tomato Noodle Soup. Price-RM9.90|

All 3 of us took the lemongrass tea. Nice.
The portion of the 2 food items ordered were sufficient for the 3 of us. Next, I hope to come with a bigger group, so that I can order more items to try. I can't wait to be back.
