If fresh coriander and your innards don't get along, it might be for the best to stay away from this new Sangenjaya eatery, where Vietnamese favourites from fresh spring rolls and bánh xèo pancakes to fiery noodle soups are served with outrageous amounts of Southeast Asia's most beloved herb. Meanwhile, those partial to pak chee, as coriander is known in both Thai and Japanese, will have a field day with creations like coriander-based pasta sauce, smoothies and mojitos. The restaurant is aiming to start lunch service in the months to come – for now, you can try the spicy offerings from 5pm until as late as 4am (on Fridays and Saturdays).
