I haven’t been to the old ChomChom but the new non-private kitchen ChomChom is turning out good Vietnamese bites. We braved the rain on and snagged a table on early in the evening on Wednesday – no reservation policy (don’t you hate that!) to sample the soft launch menu. As of now the Chef Peter’s signature Pho is not on the menu but his current bigger plate items – Shaking Beef and Turmeric Sole were big and bright in flavours were delicious. Along with those, there is a selection of rolls, salads and small bites. We had a little bit of everything and something from every part of the menu. From the selection of rolls, the prawn and pork roll but it was more about the pungent garlicky sauce that gives it the real kick. From the appetizers, the salt and pepper squid with sriracha mayo very well fried although some turned out a tad dry but overall very well fried without being greasy. Lastly, from the salad section, we had the home smoked salmon cabbage salad that was well balanced and good smoke on the salmon, the only glaring error was the crisp sesame cracker element I couldn’t care less for.
