Eating Phở Tái on Shenton Way
Buddy's Restaurant (25 Shenton Way #01-07, 9092-3934) is just an everyday Singaporean cze cha, but they recently added a stand out in front where a lady specializes in Vietnamese food. Actually, there wasn't much more than just phở and gỏi cuốn, but nonetheless the phở turned out to be a lot better than I was expecting.
It reminded me a bit of Phở Cong Ly in Saigon with its to-the-point style, but basil and bean sprouts were still provided. The broth was very light and clear, and yet it was still and savory. I liked how they loaded it up with coarsely ground black pepper and shredded scallions too. It was a lot better than many of the other phở shops in downtown.
This was a bad choice during the week though, as it definitely required some teeth brushing after returning to the office. And the time window for this is fairly limited; even though Buddy's cze cha (unrelated to Buddy's Sawasdee, I assume) is open until well past midnight, the phở apparently sells out just after lunch.
