NEW RESTO ALERT: Juanh Mi Greenhills

Hubby and I had an unplanned lunch date in Greenhills and since we were in Theatre Mall, he suggested that we try the new resto- Juanh Mi.

I love Vietnamese food so I was a bit hesitant since this resto is not really an authentic Vietnamese restaurant but a fusion of Filipino-Vietnamese cuisine. But since this is one of those rare instances that hubby suggests a restaurant, I'm just happy to tag along.


Here's what Juanh Mi looks like from the outside. It's just a few steps away from Theatre Mall entrance. I find the name - Juanh Mi amusing, a perfect fusion of Pinoy and Vietnam. I think it will also make people curious that they'll consider dining at this restaurant.


I also love the interiors which was very Instagrammable! Nowadays, an establishment's success is also dependent on how photogenic and Instagram-perfect it looks.


I ordered the fresh Vietnamese Spring Rolls since I already ate somewhere. This is quite good including the creamy peanut dip.


Hubby ordered the Pianggang- Tausug Chicken Inasal Grain Bowl. This is the most interesting dish on the menu. I've tasted a dish from the Mindanao regions that is similar to inasal during the 2017 World Street Food Congress so I was also excited to have a bite of this. Alas, it falls short of expectation and the different flavors that makes up this dish (it has some bean sprouts, kikiam, etc.) doesn't seem to agree with each other. I'm not really sure if this dish is trying to imitate a bibimbap bowl or the Vietnamese Bun Thit Nuong. But we did like the chicken itself because it was flavorful in its own marinade.


Here's the menu.
