Mr Viet at Central Market is one of the stores at the popular Market Plaza Food Court. This store offers a wide range of Vietnamese noodle dishes. Aside from their noodle dishes, Mr Viet also has Bao Buns and Cold Rice Paper Rolls that are available during the lunch hour.
The pieces of chicken thigh fillets in the Chicken Bun Bowl that we ordered were cooked just right and had a good amount of char-grilled flavour. We were delighted that the bean sprouts were lightly cooked as we don't like the raw taste of uncooked sprouts. An element of freshness was provided by the mint leaves and the yummy dressing tied everything together. To best enjoy the dish, pour the dressing over the ingredients and toss everything thoroughly to infuse the dressing into the rice vermicelli and chicken.

For something with a stronger taste, the Beef Bun Bowl is a good choice. There was a generous portion of grilled beef which had a flavour similar to lemongrass. If you desire to add extra elements of texture and flavour, there is chilli and pork crackling provided at the counter.

As you would expect, Mr Viet serves the Vietnamese dish Pho. The slices of beef in the Beef Pho were tender and the broth had a lovely spiced flavour. Aside from rice noodles, the dish also had slices of onion to add a bit of extra texture to the dish.
Market Plaza Food Court has plenty of seating but it is advisable to arrive early on Friday evenings as that is when the food court is at its busiest. U-Parks within walking distance provides convenient off-street parking and the food court's close location to bus stops make getting there easy.
