Le Family is a restaurant whose concept is Vietnamese home-dining. There were still so many restaurants in SM Aura that I wanted to visit, but in the end, I chose this one, even though it hasn’t been that long since my last Vietnamese restaurant post.
Menu: Appetizers, Salads, Soups, BBQ, Meats, Seafoods, Noodle soups, Set meals, Vegetables, Fried rice/fried noodles, Vegetarian, Vegetables, Special, and Desserts.
(Fun fact: Le Family in Vietnamese is ‘Nha Le’.)
Deep Fried Spring Rolls with Pork. I liked the combination of the crispy skin, ground pork, and the dipping sauce.
Beef Soup Noodles with Brisket. This was a last-minute order. The brisket pieces were so tender and I also loved the thinness of the rice noodles. I added cabbage shreds and bean sprouts into my pho. Oh, and aside from brisket you can also choose if you want to put tenderloin, flank, meatballs, or tripe.
Fried Prawns with Tamarind Sauce.
Bread with Meat. I’m so glad they placed the meat/veggies inside an actual French baguette – It gives it a bit of authenticity. (The name of the dish is so weird though, they could’ve just called it a banh mi sandwich…)
Lastly, Fried Rice with Salted Fish. It had little crunchy pieces of rice mixed in.
Le Family’s main goal is to warm the hearts and stomachs of every diner that steps into their restaurant. For me, they managed to achieve this goal, but at the same time there wasn’t anything special about their food and it felt like I was just dining in a regular Vietnamese restaurant.
Le Family is located at SM Aura Premier, Mckinley Parkway McKinley Hill, Taguig.
