Review: Nam Nam Noodle Bar
If you passed by Raffles City or Wheelock Place basement, you will notice this new Vietnamese noodle bar outlet.
I am a big fan of Vietnamese food and I like Annam. And Nam Nam noodle bar is a casual noodle place under Annam, a fine dining restaurant.
So with much expectation, I arrived at Nam Nam during a weekday lunch time. It was packed with people. The tables and chairs are very closed to each other, and with the amount of customers, you can imagine how noisy and packed was the restaurant.
I must say the food here is very affordable(no wonder it was so crowded). I ordered the value lunch set: Pho Beef Steak Slice ($9.90), comprised of Rice Paper Roll with shrimp, pho beef steak slice and iced vietnamese coffee with condensed Milk or iced lotus tea. (Available only on weekdays 10am-3pm)
Individually, the Roll costed $4.90, Pho Beef Steak Slice costed $8.90 and iced coffee with condensed Milk costed $2.50. So this lunch set is really value for money.
Everything is light and no MSG, especially the rice paper roll and the Pho Beef soup ... so I don't feel very bloated after the meal.
For the sauce, I suggest you mix the sauce this way: Hoi sin sauce + fish sauce + viet chilli sauce. It compliment the roll and the beef well.
If you want something special, you can order the Asian version Subway - Banh Mi, Toasted baguettes stuffed with savoury meats enhanced with mayo, hot chilli peppers, pickled carrots, daikon, cucumber and fresh cilantro. Price at $5.90.
