Uncle Ho Tuckshop in Pasir Panjang in Singapore

Bún chả

The name of this shop doesn't exactly sound Vietnamese, and this industrial area isn't exactly where one would think to find a Vietnamese restaurant either, especially on a Saturday (100 Pasir Panjang Road #01-04, 9624-5861). But we were nearby this morning and it made for a convenient place for lunch.

It was great to see bún chả right at the top of the menu, but the pork wasn't as aromatic as getting it off the streets of Hanoi. Their bánh mì featured crisp and airy bread as well as an impressive homemade pâté, but it was drizzled with a sweet sauce rather than cut Vietnamese chili peppers. Their rice paper rolls were also sweet due to a slice of fruit in there.

I thus wished that their kitchen had handled things a bit differently. But I was still happy to have come here, and suspect that I will be coming back here again, especially since I didn't get a chance to try their phở this time.
