“I went on the trip to Soc Son last weekend and was very impressed by all the team at Bloom. I've been living in Hanoi for 4 years and working in tourism and very few tours really give you meaningful interactions with local people. For one of the first times, I didn't feel like another 'sheep' on ...”
Being a vegan, this place was always going to test me. The smell of fried chicken is my Achilles Heel, I know this, and I try to avoid these hot pots of sin and desire at all costs. Last night I had no choice though - with a three hour wait until our movie the collective decided this was the place, and as it was cold, wet and miserable outside I had no choice but to begrudgingly join them.
At first I ordered a plate of chips and a beer (of course asking if there was chicken salt on the chips first), but as if to tempt me further the chips that arrived were ridiculously small - a one layer thick sprinkling of french fries over a small cup plate. by the time my friends meals arrived (which was not long at all, service was pretty fast), I was hungry again, and the sight of my friends orders was the last blow to my resolve. All kinds of chicken pieces with more chips than me, fried rice, coleslaw... it was too much. I sat pained for five minutes or so before I gave in to the devil's temptations. I ordered five pieces of delicious, boneless chicken strips. They were fantastic. No gross fatty skin like I used to have at KFC, all meat and batter, light, fresh and yummy. I'll admit, they filled a hole that hasn't been filled in a long time. I ate someone's coleslaw too and it wasn't half bad, if a little watery.
I'm not sure how to rate this place. On one hand, the food was delicious, healthier than places like KFC (though that might be a negative in some people's book); clean, speedy service, the staff spoke English, were friendly and accommodating, and the bill wasn't too unreasonable. On the other hand I'm still racked with guilt, questioning principles I hold very close to my heart, and it does say down the bottom that this is my chance to give my personal opinion. Three stars - this was a great meal, and I hope I never come back.
Think KFC that is a little less deep fried, less salt, and a bit cold. Nothing horrible but stick with KFC.
They have a soda and fry combo in the SAME CUP!!! A large soda on the bottom with a sunken lid to put fries, holy balkans batman! This is a sign of the end?
Anyway same as the ones in China, clean, decent food, not as tasty/ unhealthy as western chains sadly. Decent amount of people at night, music videos playing sometimes fashion TV. Someone go get a soda/ fry cup to bring to McDonald's you could make millions.
21/2 stars or adequate fast food extra 2 stars for the soda/fry combo cup.
Good if you're fed up with Phở and stuff.
But the reality is so far from the advertisement that you wonder what you actually ordered. A squished pale bun with more wrinkles than my Grandma? And where's the meat? It must be somewhere in that soggy pile of stuff... Even in Western countries the ads exaggerate a bit but here it's shameless, it's even worse at Lotteria (looking forward to take pictures there).
The taste is mediocre, the fries were too greasy and not crunchy.
