Long Phung

And the search of best authentic Pho continues... It was to my surprise that there are a number of Vietnamese eating places in Joo Chiat. As usual we patronized the one that has more crowd, the restaurant settings was more towards a family environment with spacious walkways, comfortable and big tables for groups.

Counter
Perhaps it was a sunday evening , servers were slow yet steady in their serving.

Menu
Place was simple and well kept with illustrated food dishes plastered on their walls. Though there were a handful of vietnamese around in the restaurant, these pictures aid patrons and gave them a better view of particular dish.

Interior
Of all juices and drinks, I had decided to opt for the Thai coconut for its refreshing taste. Meat was soft and easily scrapped out from its husk. Sweet and thirst quenching under the heat.

Thai Coconut - $3.70
Jackfruit Smoothie was not a bad idea too. Simply love the sweet fragrant from the fruit itself and when everything was blended into smoothie, it is actually very soothing too for a hot day like this.

Sinh To Mit - $4.30
My all time favourite again from the Vietnamese Cuisine! It comes in small or big portion where the small consists of 4 rolls at $7 while the bigger portion has got 6 rolls at $10.50. They termed it as their rolled salad with shrimp and pork rice nicely by the translucent moist rice paper. The dipping sauce played a big role in this dish usually, however the sauce over here in Long Phung was kind of let down as it reminds me of our local "Chee Cheong Fun" sweet sauce, not the kind of style I like.

Goi Cuon (4 Cuon) - $7
Pho Nam ~ Well-done beef's brisket noodle soup gave me the refreshing taste from its broth. It was light, however I find that the brisket were rather hard and at some part, the noodle has kind of funny smell which was not too pleasing.

Pho Nam - $7

Looks like we are always stuck between these two familiar dishes and that is none other than their special noodle soup again. As compared to my previous bowl, the light tasting broth was delighting in its beef combination, herbs, eggs as well as garnishing.

Pho Dac Biet - $8

Close up
Beef ball over here was not too spectacular and taste run-of-the mill, something that you can get off the shelves perhaps.

For two consecutive meal with Vietnamese Cuisine, even though Long Phung is considered as authentic, my vote will still goes to Mrs Pho for its environment and Pho. Do note that only CASH is accepted here.
