If you’re looking for authentic Vietnamese food, NamNam Noodle Bar might be just the place to go. NamNam Noodle Bar is a causal Vietnamese eatery that serves classic Vietnamese street food such as Pho and Banh Mi.
I’ve visited Vietnam once myself earlier this year and I fell in love with their Pho. Pho is basically warm rice noodles with a rich broth and thin slices of beef. It’s a humble dish, yet very delicious. It was hard to resist the Pho. It’s also probably the food I miss most from Vietnam till date. (Please do pardon me if I express too much of my love for Pho in this post.)
So when I chanced upon the noodle bar, I just had to try their Pho.
It did not taste exactly like the Pho I had in Vietnam – I found it to be a little more strongly seasoned. However, it was still delicious and worth it for the price paid. A bowl of Pho beef Steak: $8.90.
There is a slice of lime accompanying the bowl of Pho. Some people eat the Pho without squeezing the lime as the broth is good enough by itself. As for myself, I like to squeeze the lime as it adds a fresh tangy flavor into my Pho. 🙂
It took about 5 minutes after placing order and making payment that the food was served to our table. My friend and myself were surprised by the speed with which it was served. We’re not sure about the waiting time for people who order the other though, as my friend and myself both got their Pho!
Overall, I liked the NamNam Noodle Bar. The ambiance of the eatery was good and the dim lighting made it a comfortable place to hang out. Although I only tried their Pho, I glanced through their menu and the prices of the other food were as affordable. Next time when I visit the noodle bar, I’d try their iced coffee as I heard a few of my friends saying that its good!
