Pho 99 Vietnamese Delights, Singapore
Whoa - here is another Vietnamese place that has popped up in the CBD (58 Amoy Street). It was better than I thought it would be; even though the stingy volume of bean sprouts were pre-placed into the bowl, they provided a hearty amount of basil and even cuts of saw-leaf herb. The broth was not too cinnamon-y, and the goi cuon were fresh. And they even boasted of Trung Nguyen branded coffee from Vietnam!
What a change Singapore has seen in Vietnamese food lately. Just a couple years ago I was whining about the lack of Vietnamese places around here, and these days they are practically everywhere. Either that, or I just never knew that these places existed.
