Hidden gem in the West serving affordable and decent Vietnamese fare (think pho and banh mi from $4) in a hawker centre.

The cloudy soup broth was tasty with strong extraction of beef flavours. Would suit those who enjoy richer soups, although personal preference would be for more fresh greens and herbs to balance the sweetness and saltiness. The pho noodles were on the softer side.

Went with the special beef pho which included beef slices, beef flank, and two beef balls. The beef slices were over cooked and tough despite us removing them from the hot soup shortly after being served (would probably opt for the medium rare beef pho next time), but enjoyed the tender beef flank and juicy meatballs.

Not the best but highly worth it at this price point! Will be back 鈽猴笍

馃搷Viet Corner

Stumbled upon this Vietnamese stall hidden in a Bukit Batok coffee shop which serves pretty legit Vietnamese cuisine. The first time we passed by, they were already sold out for quite a few iconic items on the menu. The second time we came by, we were told to wait for about 30 mins for a bowl of Bun Thit Nuong even though the coffeeshop wasn鈥檛 packed and there was no queue at the stall. Guess the popularity was a result of food delivery.

Bun Thit Nuong, or Rice vermicelli noodle with grilled pork, is somewhat similar to its Northern Vietnam counterpart Bun Cha, except that the grilled pork shoulder slices are served in the bowl of rice vermicelli noodle and separated from the sauce which is drizzled atop just like what we did. The pork shoulder slices were grilled till tender with a nice char, and usually known to be marinated in lemongrass, shallot, fish sauce, garlic, sugar and paprika to give a caramelic flavour. I especially enjoyed the sweet glaze on the pork. Drizzling of the sweet and sour sauce helped to cut through the meat鈥檚 greasiness. There鈥檚 also cut chili, chopped peanuts, shallots, fresh sliced cucumber and carrots to enhance the flavour of this hearty bowl of rice vermicelli.

Owner wasn鈥檛 really friendly but it鈥檚 worth the trip to seek for some authentic Vietnamese food. Do be prepared for the long wait.

Although this is dry noodles, it鈥檚 not oily or covered in gravy. Instead it is light and healthy tasting, and seasoned with lime. There鈥檚 plenty of shredded vegetables mixed into it, in addition with several pieces of chicken and a spring roll. I enjoyed it very much.

Located in Northpoint City just beside the escalator that links you to Yishun MRT, The Kind Bowl serves
vegetarian Vietnamese food such as Pho and Bahn Mi. The stall is pretty small, with only around 10 seats available.

The Crazy Baguette (Bahn Mi) took a little longer to prepare compared to the noodles. A generous serving of pickled carrots, cucumbers, lettuce, cilantro, red chili, tofu and grilled seitan were placed on top of a well-toasted baguette. Apart from the savory black pepper sauce coating the crunchy vegetables in the sandwich, there was also mushroom pate spread across the inside layer of the baguette for added umami.

The dish was clean-tasting overall, with a huge serving of fresh vegetables to increase your fibre intake, but did not compromise on the taste - acidity from the pickled vegetables, spice from the chili and the savory black pepper sauce came together really well. The serving was huge too and we could only finish half of the portion given as we also had a bowl of their noodles.

There is also an option to have the mains (noodles or Bahn Mi) in a set that comes with a drink and a summer roll. The sets would cost $12.80, while having the mains a la carte would cost $9.80 instead. They did not accept paywave when we were there but you can pay via PayLah! and GrabPay.

hands down one of the best banh mi i鈥檝e tasted in sg! the baguette was crispy and fragrant, while the chicken was a little tough (likely breast meat) but the seasoning was ON POINT 馃馃徎 they also put a huge chunk of cucumber inside which was so refreshing 馃崈 the best part however is the last portion where they baguette has fully absorbed the sauce from the chicken - a perfect ending to the meal!

only thing was! i think i would have preferred with a little more coriander.

didn't have high expectations for this place but we were pleasantly surprised by the authenticity of the food! we ordered one duck noodle soup ($8.90+) (bun) & one pho bo (beef pho) ($8.90+). the noodles were simple but tasted just like the ones we had in vietnam. we also ordered a kampung chicken ($24.90+) that isn't included in the burpple beyond menu but that really impressed us! the chicken was well charred yet retained its juiciness and tenderness. highly recommend the chicken! the viet coffee was alright ($3.50+). would come back again even without the promo!

A slow afternoon with an enjoyable lunch at this small Vietnamese eatery. Tried the prawn noodles here as recommended by @cweizhi - not the typical rich broth like our local prawn mee, the broth was comfortingly light and sweet, comes with pork, prawns. Really enjoyed the Vietnamese drip coffee too! Wanted to get the drip (sachet) but it requires a preorder as they pack it fresh, so I ended up getting a bag of coffee beans for drip coffee which they kindly grounded for me.

Will be back to try other items on the menu (also eyeing the Vietnamese egg coffee!)

Bahm mi is yummy and full of ingridents!

Bread is toasted crispy and fillings are moist so overall texture is not dry
