There hasn’t been much going on in terms of new F&B tenants within the basement of Marina One until fairly recently; the month of August sees new entrants such as Yenney Restaurant and Supergreen moving in and starting operations — about time considering how most of the office folks within the Central Business District had since returned to their workplaces. Situated right beside the lift lobby that leads to Marina One East Tower, Yenney Restaurant is a new Vietnamese concept — the interior has been decked in a style that is modern and chic, yet evokes some form of colonial touch and a feel that is close to nature; think terrazzo-esque table tops with seat cushions with tropical prints that is flanked by wooden furniture and fittings that is really pleasing to the eyes. Mainly serving up Vietnamese cuisine to hungry office workers during lunch, the menu at Yenney Restaurant groups various items together and offers the items as a “Set Meal” that sees a main being served with a starter and a drink. That being said, all items listed on the menu are available ala-carte; the prices of each item being listed beside the description of the dish. Mains available on the menu at Yenney Restaurant includes various types of Pho, Banh Mi, Bun Cha and Rice Sets, while there are only two starters to choose from — the Fresh Spring Rolls and the Fried Spring Rolls. Yenney Restaurant serves up a single beverage on their menu; a Lemongrass Tea that seems to be served with bits of Yuzu.

Was looking for something that is more of a light bite and decided to go for the Banh Mi Set — the Banh Mi Set comprises of the BBQ Pork + Bread, Fresh Spring Rolls and Lemongrass Tea by default. We pretty much liked the Fresh Spring Rolls that they had served up a starter for the set — whilst there is not a choice of prawn for their Fresh Spring Rolls, the spring rolls are chewy; encasing tender, juicy barbecue meat within. Dipping it into the fish sauce provided on the side gives the spring rolls a savoury note that gives the spring roll more flavour. The Banh Mi was also a decent offering; no doubt the bread does seem to lose its crispness rather quickly, but the bread does give a good, firm bite. Stuffed with different meats that are sandwiches in between, we did note chunks of BBQ Pork and slices of Vietnamese Ham included within — the former giving a slight hint of sweetness alongside a smoky flavour, while the latter gives a soft bite and a bit of savoury note. The bread is being spread with a meat pâté; one thing that is of particular note is how the meat pâté that is used in their Banh Mi here is milder in flavour than most that we have came across thus far — it’s buttery texture still manages to gel all the elements together, though is significantly less saltish than what we have tried. They have also included sriracha chili for the Banh Mi here by default to provide for that slight tingle of spiciness that tickles the tastebuds as well.

Having only tried one item off their menu, Yenney Restaurant does feel like an establishment that seems to have quite a bit of potential — the interior of the space does probably hint of the effort that they are putting into the business; that being said, we would reckon that the highlights at Yenney Restaurant are likely to be the various types of Pho that they have to offer. We also found it a real shame that they do not offer a variety of beverages at Yenney Restaurant; we were definitely looking forward to having some form of Vietnamese coffee here and perhaps even Salted Lemonade as an option to the Lemongrass Tea that is the only beverage available at the time when the visit was made. Otherwise, the experience at Yenney Restaurant was pretty alright — thought that there wasn’t much to comment apart from the service staff probably needing a little more time to get used to the pace once lunch time hits; prices might be a little steep since most of their lunch sets would fall within being a few dollars above or short of $15.90++, though it does make for a good spot with an ambience to settle those cravings for Vietnamese cuisine in an air-conditioned environment. A spot that we might return to give their Pho a try some other day!
