Quick, Casual, Modern Hanoi Food

Full Nam Nam Noodle Bar review here: http://ivanteh-runningman.blogspot.sg/2014/12/nam-nam-noodle-bar.html


Founded in 2011 under the Les Amis Group, Nam Nam Noodle Bar is riding high on the trend of Vietnam cuisine in Singapore. Owner Chef Nam Quoc Nguyen has hit his stride with quick, casual, Vietnamese street food, serving up popular classic dishes at Nam Nam Noodle Bar that retain the spirit of the traditional, while infusing his own unique modern spin.

Ambience at Nam Nam Noodle Bar is designed to resemble the streets of Vietname, with woodern looking furniture, hard flooring, traditional lanterns, and even a street cinema. Despite the dark colour theme of brown against green, the place doesn't look cluttered, and the spacious interior is able to seat many diners, though ambient noise levels can get a bit high.

Service at Nam Nam Noodle Bar is partially self-service, partially table side service. Seating, ordering and payment is self-service, you'll have to pick a seat, decide on your order, indicate it on an order chit, then queue to make payment. Orders will be served to you, and I notice that Nam Nam Noodle Bar is rather efficient at fulfilling orders, typically taking about 5 minutes or so, even during peak periods. Besides this, you'll have very little chance to interact with staff.

Food at Nam Nam Noodle Bar draws its inspiration from the Hanoi region, and I'm glad they use fresh herbs and vegetables like classic Vietnamese cuisine. The menu isn't too extensive, basically consisting of either Vietnamese noodle soup (Pho), or Vietnamese sandwiches (Banh Mi), with a small selection of classic Vietnamese side dishes and desserts. Portions are sufficient for 1 person, and prices are affordable, budget about SGD $15 per person for a meal here.

I felt the Lime Soda (SGD $3.20) was rather diluted, and not worth the money, although I liked the addition of mint leaves, which made it refreshing. The Mekong Fresh Young Coconut (SGD $5.90) is suitably thirst quenching and fresh, but I find the coconut flesh too tough to properly scrape off, making eating it very difficult.

The Pho Beef Combination (SGD $9.90), or Pho Bo / Vietnamese Beef Noodle, is the star dish on the menu here. They serve Hanoi style Pho here, which features a lighter, clearer broth that is more savoury than sweet, along with a wide, flat rice noodle. However, it isn't pure Hanoi / North style Pho, as the garnishings of vegetables and sauces / condiments seem to be derived from Ho Chi Minh City / Saigon / South style Pho. Still, I must say it's pretty good, with the robust soup carrying a lot of flavour.

I had of my worst experience in the Nam nam noodles bar outlet at Suntec.One word to describe the experience atrocious.
 They made a mistakes on my order and they did not apologize. I had to wait for more than 40 minutes for the most horrible beef pho in my life. Excuse me! The standard office lunch is only 1 hours, 40 min Queuing and wait for food?? Service and the kitchen staff reaction are really slow and not efficient at all! The service staff are so outrightly rude and unbelievable,unprofessional super bad attitude! My colleague is pregnant and they served us uncooked beef and totally unrepentant when I informed them. I talked to the staff ( hosting Aunty) guess what she told me,just soap the beef longer at the soup, as the kitchen staff won't do any replacement! This is one of the poorest service and lousiest food place that I ever received. One things for sure, I will never step into this place again. This place lacks of businesses ethics and they don't bother whether they served edible food. I will tell all my colleagues to beware of their food hygiene. Poor and bad service attitude! I will ban this place forever!!

Disappointed... The taste of the broth they use for their Pho is so foreign to what I've already tried in other places in Vietnam and in restaurants opened by Vietnamese chefs (in Paris, LA and Vancouver). It just taste like a concept of Vietnamese food. Nevertheless, the decoration is nice.
