ベトナム料理コムゴンCom Ngom Kyoto

Com Ngom Kyoto is a Vietnamese restaurant that opened in mid-December on 蛸薬師通Takoyakushi Street, east of 烏丸通Karasuma Street, last year. I first noticed it when I went in search of osteria Bastille; how could one not notice such a brightly painted establishment in Kyoto, especially when it’s next door?

One can see what’s cooking through the small window of the kitchen, above the menu display.

I made a mental note to go sometime and that day came about a month ago when I decided to go before going into work.

The restaurant is pretty small but cozy; they sell Vietnamese products as seen by shelves by the wall.

The porch area outside displays Vietnamese-style decoration as well as serving as a storage area.

I got the カレーランチkaree ranchi (curry lunch), ¥880, which comes with salad and pickles. The chicken curry was even milder due to the sweet potatoes stewed with it.

For dessert I got 白玉団子とタピオカのチェー(ココナッツミルクチェー)shiratama-dango to tapioka no chee (kokonattsu miruku chee) (chè with white flour dumplings, tapioca and coconut milk), ¥380, and カフェダーkafe daa (Vietnamese iced coffee), ¥450.

the final product

Beautiful interior and good food and drink (the cooks are native Vietnamese), reasonable price, especially lunch…I’ll be going again.

Update: I finally got to go again five months later when Maki, who had been before, suggested going in mid-March so that I could finally give her my Valentine chocolates and we could talk more in depth, one-on-one.

Maki had the バインカンランチbainkan ranchi (bánh canh (noodles from the southern part of Ho Chi Minh) with chicken lunch), ¥880, which came with sweet & spicy stewed pork & mustard greens over rice and a healthy salad with prawn cracker.

This time I had the the ブンティットランチbun-titto ranchi (bún thit (cold rice vermicelli mixed with fresh vegetables and topped with hot barbecued pork over which a sauce is poured) lunch), ¥950, which comes with sweet & spicy stewed pork & mustard greens over rice.

With the day being a bit toasty, my order was the perfect choice, and filling, too.
