Pho Street (Vietnam food in Singapore) Food Review

Hi lovelies,

Some time back, my sis and I visited Pho Street and had a satisfying, scrumptious meal there, and in this post, I am going to share my reviews for the dishes we had at Pho Street.

When we first got there, we were impressed and totally adore the traditional Vietnamese design and ambience at Pho Street. 

We placed orders for our drinks first. We had the Passionfruit & Basil Mojito (S$3.50) and Lemon Cooler with Peppermint & Basil (S$3.50). Both drinks were very cooling and refreshing. I love the Passionfruit & Basil Mojito as it was a well-balanced mixture, not too sweet nor overpowering in taste while my sis love the Lemon Cooler with Peppermint & Basil for its cooling minty taste.

Next, we started off with some of their famous side dishes.

This is the Fresh Summer Rolls with Prawn, Pork Belly and Fresh herbs (S$4.90).

The taste is light and really good as a starter. The rolls matched well with the sweet sauce which my sis and I identified as almost similar to ji cheong fan's sauce. It's a unique fusion but sure to make us crave to have more,

Then we had the Vietnamese Snack Platter (S$8.80) which consisted of  2 Crispy Fried Pork Rolls, 2 Roasted Chicken Skewers, 2 Vietnamese Crabcakes.

We enjoyed the pork rolls with its crispy, not oily fried beancurd skin wrapping the fresh pork meat within. The crabcake tasted good too, we love the texture but it was a little pity that the taste of the crab meat had been mostly concealed by the herbs and seasonings. The roasted chicken skewer was the best and my favorite in this platter with the tender, juicy, flavorful chicken. I would recommend all to try this value for money platter and try 3 sides in one dish.

If you are a chicken meat lover, I would recommend you to try their delectable Crispy Fried Chicken Mid-wings served with Caramelised Sweet Dip (S$4.90).

The outer crispiness combined with the interior tenderness was simply scrumptious and we could never stop. The meat departed easily from the bones, making it really easy to consume without dirtying our hands. The sauce tasted special but a little overwhelmed with the black pepper.

Recommending this authentic Vietnamese food with the Sesame Rich Crackers imported straight from Vietnam and fried straight in the kitchen, serving warm and crispy. You really got to try this Sesame Rice Crackers served with Fragrant Minced Meat and Spices Dip ($6.90). It was really addicted and great to munch on!

A Vietnamese meal will not be complete without their Pho Beef. At Pho Street, their specialty is the Pho Beef Combination (S$9.90) consisting of Beef balls, Beef slices, Beef shank, Beef tendons, Beef tripe.

Unlike the common Vietnamese Pho, their Beef Pho does not add in fish sauce but they have a special sauce to go with it. Their special sauce was a mixture of all kinds of flavors; spiciness, sweetness, saltiness. The piping bowl of Pho was served in a light and flavorful broth boiled for long hours to extract the natural goodness of marrow-rich beef bones. For every beef lover, you definitely cannot miss this Pho Beef Combination consisting of beef slices, balls, shank, tendon and tripe.  

If chicken and beef could not satisfy you, then this Dry Rice Vermicelli with Roasted Pork Chop & Spring Roll (S$8.90) will surely satisfy your taste-buds. Another signature noodle dish from Vietnam not often found in Singapore is the Dry Rice Vermicelli.

When I first saw this dish, I was amazed by the huge and generous portion of the roasted pork chop considering that this dish costed less than S$10. The pork chop was cooked just nice, not tough at all and flavorful in taste. The crunchiness of the veggies and peanut flakes added much flavor and texture to this dish, together with pickled carrots and radish and appetizing sweet sour sauce, made this dish super delish. I highly recommend everyone to try it! 

Opting for something light in calories yet not compromising on taste, this Banh Mi Combination (S$6.90) is one of the best Banh Mis I have ever tasted. 

This Banh Mi Combination consists of Pork Belly, Grilled Beef and Chicken Ham. You get all 3 different meats in one. What's most amazing in taste is the toasted crusty bread stuffed with fragrant meats, mayonnaise, pickled carrots and radish, cucumber, chilli and fresh cilantro. 

The meal is lastly complete with a Vietnamese dessert. This is the Cream of Mung Bean with Coconut Sauce & Crushed Peanuts (S$3.50).

This dessert is very creamy and great in taste, just like a cooling banana milkshake with added crunchiness from the crushed peanuts. Yums!

Pho Street provides diners with an exciting taste of Vietnam that is no further than a short train stop away!
