a nice place for a quick meal. aroma and taste of the hot coffee with condensed milk are to my preference, served with a cute retro-looked cup. breakfast and lunch set priced at 5.90 and 9.90 are must try, in a just nice portion and reasonable price.
Slurpy goodness is what I can think of when I think of Nam Nam. And I finally got to try this last week!
Yes I know I’m really late and probably everyone out there has tried this more than once (that explains the never ending queues).. well the queue was the main reason and the other reason was that I was off grains this whole time.
So I decided to have a cheat meal and go ahead to binge with my ever accommodating hubby who is always ready and happy to see me eat. It gives him extreme joy to see me eat the stuff I shouldn’t eat.
Just last night he was hungry at 11pm and wanted to order KFC. So he was there persuading me that KFC is all meat so it’s quite paleo blah blah blah. I caved in and said okay, only to realise that KFC delivery isn’t 24 hours..
Haha so he made instant noodles and I escaped the late supper calories.
Ok back to Nam Nam. I reached at about 215pm and to my horror there was still a queue at Nam Nam!!
Since hubby wasn’t here yet I just joined the queue. And then I realised that they have quite a different system of ordering and payment. We have to take an order chit that’s located at the queue, tick what we want, pay and then we will be directed to a table.
So I was very obedient. I was looking at the menu while queueing and taking my time to order. Then suddenly I realised that the queue was gone and I was next.
A wait staff came to me and ushered me to an empty table immediately. She was very nice and she told me how to go about ordering and paying. although a bit loud and I guess everyone around me knew I was a noob; I was impressed with her helpful attitude and the fact that she was able to be flexible enough to let me in without me having to order and pay first.
Hubby came shortly and after paying, the food arrived very soon.
I used to be a loyal fan of Namnam and went at least once a week for lunch when they first opened, but after a short while, as their business picked up, the standard dropped considerably, although they remain popular with the work crowd for the weekday set lunches at $9.90. I find Namnam to be either hit-or-miss, about 50-50 both ways, with eyebrow-raising encounters with the service.

Eggs. They come in all shapes, sizes, colours and varieties: white, brown, free range, barn-laid, small, large and extra large. Some come with Omega 3, others with selenium and carrot. We makes sense of it all.
Bingsu ice shavings, sweet rice cakes and toasts invade the cafes here. Not typically offered in traditional Korean meals, desserts are served only during special occasions as refreshments, but in Singapore, the tables are turned
