[LEFT] Little Vietnam Restaurant and Cafe – Authentic Vietnamese Food in Singapore #3
[RIGHT] Cooling indoor seats. There is also a large outdoor area that looks like a good chill-out spot at night. Btw, the beer here is dirt cheap (5 dollars corona and hoegaarden!) 🙂
[LEFT] COM TAM (Grilled pork chop with rice and egg) – This is the recommended rice dish by the waitress. The pork chop was well – marinated and i like the appetising pickles on the side. What really stood out from this plate was the ugly block of meat on the top left (Vietnamese meat loaf made of pork, egg, vermicelli and black fungus). It tasted like a very flavourful luncheon meat with crunchy texture. I LIKE.
[RIGHT] NGHEU HAP SA (Shellfish steamed with citronella herb) – The clams were huge and tasty. However, this is again too soupy for my liking (Similar to Long Phuong’s version).
BOT CHIEN (Vietnamese style fried carrot cake) – This is SO good. The waitress warned us that the preparation time for this dish is long (~15 minutes) but it is certainly worth the wait. The radish cubes had a “melt-in-the-mouth” texture and a beautiful brown crispy coat.
This tasted very similar (in fact maybe better) than the Singapore style white carrot cake. Finally I understand why none of my Vietnamese colleagues looked overly impressed when I tried making carrot cake in a house party there! 😦

[LEFT] Quynh Giao Quan An Vietnam Restaurant – Authentic Vietnamese Food in Singapore #5
[RIGHT] The restaurant is located in a strategic location along Joo Chiat Road and was fully packed in the evening.
[LEFT] HU TIEU NAM VANG (Noodle with pork, liver and prawn) – This came highly recommended by the Singaporean Chinese boss (Philips) who speaks very fluent Vietnamese. He co-owns this shop with his Vietnamese wife. The broth of the noodle was really good.
[RIGHT] BANH UOT (Steamed rice rolls with Vietnamese Ham) – This dish was served cold. It was neither aesthetically appealing nor tasty.
Overall, these 3 eateries serve reasonably good Vietnamese food. They offer a wide variety of Vietnamese food at affordable prices. It is difficult to find their menu online so i took a sample shot of their noodle menu for anyone who’s interested.
If I have to pick one for a revisit, that will probably be little Vietnam Restaurant and Cafe because of its wide (and cheap) variety of beer! 🙂
