Tried their vermicelli with grilled pork and springrolls and was pleasantly surprised with the amount of tender grilled pork. The slightly tangy kick and savoury fish sauce were really refreshing too. And what's more - they're on Burpple Beyond 1-for-1, making it super worth it as this bowl only costs less than $8!

On top of the standard tangy dipping sauce of pork balls and grilled pork, the rice vermicelli was served with fried prawn roll too! Though the dipping sauce was rather sweet for my liking, this might be less overwhelming and more well-liked by some people as compared to my usual bun cha spot. However, please note that at the Timbre+ outlet, bun cha is only available for dinner!

A modern take on banh mi with tofu, cheese and salmon, which unfortunately was not for my liking. Probably my mind is always set to the original take of a traditional dish an thus the bias. Also, I wish the salmon could be "smokier" since the cheese and tofu were rather mild in flavour.

The spicy seafood soup was fragrant and flavourful, and it was well-balanced with the zesty lime as well. Topped with generous amounts of prawns and fishcakes, this bowl was familiar yet comforting to the palate.

Definitely our favourite that night, the chicken wings came with addictive fried shallots and garlic bits on top. The sweet soy sauce and the smokey flavour made this a perfect snack, especially with some beers on the table 😛

I saw a lot of photos and posters on bun cha in the restaurant, and so I ordered it without thinking twice. It's essentially a "Vietnamese soba", where one has to dip in the rice vermicelli into the light refreshing broth. The dish was popularised by a Facebook video where Anthony Bourdain gave Barack Obama a crash course in Vietnamese food.
And I immediately fell in love with the broth! The sweet and slightly tangy soup was lip-smacking good, and with extra chopped garlic & chilli padi, the broth came out light and refreshing. Another highlight was their char grilled pork patty which was juicy and well-seasoned. And do get yourself a glass of their iced lemongrass-pandan as it was super duper refreshing and nice after such a flavourful meal.
