Adem Finest Cuisine is the latest Vietnamese restaurant to hit Sibu
and I’ve heard nothing but good things about them. I went there for
lunch today to check them out.
The seating arrangements are divided into two areas – the inside
(shown above) which offers a pub like ambience and the al fresco area
outside (shown below).
I chose the latter coz it was a bright and cheery sunny day and also
because I found the water lilies they had growing in the trough lining
the al fresco area intriguing and very peaceful.
I saw that the umbrella covers were all showing Trung Nguyen Coffee,
and the waitress confirmed that it’s their specialty Vietnamese coffee
so I had that.
It came in the form of some metal contraption on top of a cup and saucer.
Noticing the befuddled look on my face, the waitress kindly
explained the system…basically, it’s a coffee filter, and you open
the lid when the water has seeped through and put it upside down on the
The other two contraptions is then lifted and put on top of the said
upside down lid “to avoid the coffee from spilling” or something.
The resulting coffee was fragrant, with a nice robust aroma. It was strong and good, just the way I like it.
There’s coffee service in the form of milk, ice cubes and sugar, but I espoused that in favour of the dark, rich coffee.
It also comes with complementary garlic bread toast, and man…I
can’t describe the feeling of chewing on a bit of garlic toast and
taking a sip of hot coffee to chase it down. It’s divine!
As for the food, I ordered “Vietnamese Omelette” to start things off…
…it was just egg and sausages, nothing to write home about.
I also ordered their famous Vietnamese beef noodles, shown here in all its glory – hot, steaming pho!
The pho came with three condiments – lime, chilli sauce, and sea salt.
The pho was absolutely fabulous…it’s the understated but rich
type, with nearly clear stock, but it was well made and the natural
flavours of the ingredients fused together to provide a superlatively
wonderful meal. ;)
Seriously though, their pho is good…go and try it!
