Fish was meaty but the crust wasn't as flavourful as I expected. This was alright but it lacks a punch esp when it's not served with shrimp paste. Guess it's tamed due to the touristy crowd in the area

Uncle ho's version is much much stronger and thus much more satisfying

Excellent execution

It's rare to find a freshwater eel dish in Singapore and this is the first time I've seen anything like this. I don't think any other Vietnamese establishment has this dish and it's serendipitous that this, being their signature, is executed well

The generous herbs and spices meld well into the slightly viscous porridge and is so comforting yet satisfying at the same time. Freshwater eel has a bouncy bite akin to pig trotter jelly. My grandmother prepares a version that's more meaty but this texture is certainly enjoyable as well. There's a mild heat at the back of the throat and a unique umami underlying everything.

Absolutely delicious and worth a trip(it's pretty ulu)

Requested for without rice

Again it's rather mild and nothing too impressive. There's no crisp. Texture wasn't superbly tender either for the ckn. Spring onion oil was not strongly infused.

Pork chop was tender but otherwise not impressive, there's no crisp at all on the surface. Pork meatballs were sweet and tender, nice crisp. Spring roll was average, noodles had a good bite. The sauce wasn't v strong tho, much like the whole dish

Overall nothing too special

Pork chop was lightly marinated and tender. Not caramelised though. It's fine but nowhere near their best item

Soup was bad

Served with a punchy sauce. Really funky on its own but not revoltingly so, umami when you mix w bit w the noodles

The fish was the absolute highlight of the meal though. Really crunchy and meaty, the aromatics helped immensely too. Must try!

I would say it's much better a reason to visit than their bun cha

Highly lauded but it's not mind-blowing. Pretty decent for its price, not much to pick on, dipping soup was too light, noodles were v soft.

It's a really light yet addictive salad due to the various elements of crunch and a great balance of sweet, salty and sour.

Pork chop was again ok only but the bright tangy flavours were not bad, gf loved it. The fish sausage was interesting as well, soft bouncy texture with a pervasive sweetnedd

Egg meatloaf was decent, pork was rather dry. Same pork as the pork chop in Vermicelli. The most stunning component is the soup, which is the pork seafood quail egg noodle soup. Full of sweet umami

A variety of pork items and complex but clean flavour. The baguette was crispy and fluffy. Overall it's a good one but by no means the best, adjust your expectations

Ginger taste was strong but the syrup was too sweet. Wait for it to dilute first I guess

Would travel for food
