nice place for quick meal

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.

Good value weekday set lunch, but service is especially eyebrow-raising

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.

Bowl of Pepper Soup

I had seen Nam Nam and it's various branches around, and as lover of Vietnamese food, I was very excited to try it. I especially was psyched to try the Pho since they claimed not to use MSG, a flavor enhancer used to avoid making pho the right way.
 
 I ordered a pho with steak, and it arrived to me with a mountain of black pepper. I managed to take some off before I took my exploratory spoonful of the broth to determine what I needed to add to flavor it up. The first spoonful was like consuming a whole bag of peppercorns, and I raced to think how to salvage the broth. I added all the usual condiments (Chili sauce, hoison, etc), but nothing could salvage the broth.
 
 Against my better judgement, I asked for my soup to be replaced knowing that I would likely get another bowl of peppery soup. They reluctantly agreed shooting me a dirty look. My second bowl was much of the same, and I choked down the soup just because I was paying for it.
 
 Bright side, their iced vietnamese coffee was passable. Never again.

Doesn't give two hoots about customer service at all. Two times that we have been there, just for take-away, knowing that their house is always full, they totally disregard our existence. The first time, we gave them the benefit of doubt but the second time it happened again. Totally unprofessional and poor customer service. Good and appetizing food, but customer service just ruin it all

I have decided to dine at NamNam Noodle Bar @ Plaza Singapura because I had cravings for soup noodles. It is located at the extended part of Plaza Singapura, beside Tim Ho Wan and right in front of Starbucks at level one.

NamNam Noodle Bar serves iconic Vietnamese street food such as Pho (a bowl of rice flour noodles with intense broth boiled over 24 hours) and Banh Mi (toasted banquette stuffed with savoury meat + tons of other ingredients).

The restaurant is situated right beside an escalator and was very bright (good for taking pictures ya know). But, the amount of lighting did not go well with the theme of dark colours (wood brown, black utensils and dark-coloured dishware), but I guess they are not able to do anything about it as they are operating right in front of the entrance which is made of glass panels.

Next, I cannot stop complaining about the space in between tables. In this restaurant, the tables are placed packed to each other, about 2 to 3 inches apart. But given the small operating space — taking into account of spaces set aside for kitchen, counter and restricted spaces — I guess they had a hard time to maximise space as well.

We were greeted by a friendly cashier and given suggestions to where we can be seated. But, the serving of food, was bad. The food came quickly, within 10 mins. But the attitude of the servers were poor. When the food came, they just placed it on the table and left.

But the food was superb! The broth and the chicken wings! It is worth a try but I doubt I will become a repeated customer. For those seeking a quick solution for your lunch, you can dine here. 10 mins for them to serve your food, not bad aye?

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
