Ever since I got back from Australia, there’s no way to get Vietnamese pho in Kuching. The one I had in Paris last year was a disaster, not only it’s not right but blardy expensive!
When my friend told me that his friend’s Vietnamese wife gave the thumb of approval on the Vietnamese coffee shop called Nam Nam Cafe situated in Jalan Song, I couldn’t wait to try it out. Finally the opportunity is here few weeks back. I went there with my parents.
Left: It’s a must to have pho! Taste? It’s not so bad. Way better than the pho-wannabe in Paris and close to what I had in Australia. I won’t eat anything else but beef pho in a Vietnamese eatery, not chicken or other, only beef! The portion is slightly bigger portion of small in Australia. I usually ordered small back then in down under. Hence, do share it with another friend if you’re small eater. This one here is pho beef balls with steak slices (RM13.90). Not expensive at all I must say, it’s about AUD9-10 for this portion in Australia.
Right: Grill pork chop rice with egg-pork patty and egg (RM9.90). This is just normal, it’s what you see and what you get. Can’t comment much. At least the meat was just nice. Rice is just your normal rice, not broken rice. The real thing should be using broken rice but doesn’t really matter anyway. The menu didn’t say it’s broken rice and you can’t get broken rice here. If they’re using broken rice, it won’t be this price. Even in Australia, not all Vietnamese restaurant has broken rice.
In conclusion, this is enough to satisfy my craving for pho.
