Phan Viet Deli, Robinson Road
This is a new Vietnamese shop (112 Robinson Road #01-03, 9828-4608) that opened just a few doors down from Simply Sandwich and Munch. I grabbed their set lunch which featured piping hot pho in a decently sized bowl as well as some crispy deep fried appetizers.
Oddly though, the usual spread of bean sprouts and basil for the pho came in the most pathetic little cup I'd ever seen, amounting to no more than 15 sprouts (yes, there were so few that I could count them), most of them only half-size. There was no lime given, and the brisket was rather thick and tough. Most importantly, the broth was mildly sweet, which was enough to convince me to head just a bit further up the street next time a pho craving hits. Well, at least it's good to know that there is an alternative here.
