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.
