Following its successful debut in the Philippines in Eastwood City in July 2016, Annam Noodle Bar is set to transport diners to the vibrant streets of Saigon in its latest location at Resorts World Manila in Pasay City, with a revamped menu bringing new rice dishes to Filipinos.
The new rice dishes are influenced from one of Vietnam’s most unique street food – broken rice. Annam’s contemporary rice dishes uses a long-grain variety, embodying both Vietnamese and Filipino flavours and ingredients as they feature various meat and seafood toppings in each dish.
The new plates include Crispy Fried Pork Chop with classic Vietnamese steamed egg meatloaf; Twice Cooked Australian Beef Brisket with Imperial Roll; Fried Fish Fillet in Tomato Turmeric Sauce with Prawn Sugarcane; and Sauteed Pork Belly with Prawns and Fried Egg.
In addition, Annam has introduced a unique Vietnamese classic, the Shaking Beef in Pepper Hoisin Sauce, or bò lúc lắc. Its tongue-in-cheek name is derived from the way the wok is “shaken” to sear the meat. The dish is served with thick cut fries-due to its influences from the French colonial period.
Fans of Annam’s noodles will be delighted with the new recipes such as the Soy Braised Chicken Noodle with Crispy Wonton and Mekong Prawn Roll; and Bun Cha Hanoi – a mouthwatering dish with grilled marinated pork and patty belly with a side of crispy Mekong prawn roll.
Famed for its bánh mì, French-inspired Viet stuffed baguettes; Annam has created three new exciting flavours – Twice Cooked Australian Beef Brisket; Crispy Fried Turmeric Chicken; and Smoked Salmon with Tofu and Cream Cheese – all topped with traditional Vietnamese pickles, chicken pate,and fresh herbs. Annam’s bánh mì is perfect for breakfast, especially when paired with the signature Vietnamese coffee made from premium robusta coffee beans.
Annam’s wide variety of delicious small plate dishes is perfect as appetisers to start the meal or as sides to share with friends and family. New on the menu are the refreshing Pomelo Salad with Prawns, Chicken and Assorted Crackers; the moreish Crispy Chicken Bites with Sriracha Mayonnaise; and Bánh Bao Buns – steamed buns stuffed with caramelised pork belly, egg, cucumber and scallion. The ever-popular Caramelised Crispy Chicken Wings return with a new and improved recipe for a more irresistible taste. Accompany the meal with a new selection of thirst-quenching beverages made with vibrant tropical fruits including the Mango-pineapple sparkling, Passion-soursop sparkling and Lime lychee sparkling. Those looking for a caffeine boost will enjoy these refreshing new creations – Salted caramel-banana iced coffee and Pandan-red bean iced milk tea.
