Finally tried La Lot after months of saying, "We should try this place out." My dad is always game for Vietnamese food (unlike Thai food where we practically have to force him through the entrance of any Thai restaurant. He's just not a fan of Thai food outside of Thailand - that's another story altogether.)
The most interesting dish was the durian chicken wings. Looks like simple grilled wings but you get a faint hint of the durian smell when it's served. When you bite through it, again the durian taste is very subtle but surprisingly it tastes really good.
We also had the mixed platter appetisers. Deep fried prawn rolls, beef skewers and sorry I cant remember what else.
Shen ordered the beef stew with rice. The sauce was a bit too salty.
Fatteh ordered the ubiquitous pho bo (beef noodle soup). Pretty good stock and the quality of beef was not too bad too. Pretty much how we'd expect pho to be.
