Little Saigon

I suddenly felt an urge to try Vietnamese Restaurant and thought I have not been to Clarke Quay area for years, so, I found Little Saigon.

Seemed quite interesting from its menu on the website, so, without reservation, we arrived there around 6.30 pm. Knowing Clarke Quay crowd, I was quite confident, we could get a seat at those hour.

What made me surprise was the indoor section, it totally different from the photo on website, instead of table with seats, it is high table with bar stool seats. I opted for the outdoor and right next to the river view.

When our appetizer came, I was a bit taken aback as I thought it did not look as what I expected, cause I had tried supposedly the same rice spring roll. 

It certainly reminded me why I have not been this area for years, not a place for having a gourmet meal for sure.

The the fried rice came but the portion was tiny, the pho bo was okay but more on beef brisket.

Not sure how many staff they are currently having but the outdoor was mainly manned by 1 lady staff so a bit slow in getting their attention.

It may be a good place for drinks, as most of the venues at Clarke Quay but not for your dining destination.

Will still be looking for a good Vietnamese restaurant in Singapore.

Their Logo is an eye-catching and oh so suitable to be identified with Clarke Quay 

Their blue lantern

Their blue and white colour theme on table setting

View opposite the Central mall

The outdoor area facing the indoor area, the building with turquoise blue

Logo on top of the indoor entrance

Some pics of the dishes but only saw it after we made our order

Quite interesting to see the oil in this blue glass

Our appetizer, the Deep Fried Rice Paper Spring Roll

It did not look like a cut spring rolls and did not really tasted the crabmeat and spices

Shirley Temple Mocktails, it was refreshing

The Fried Rice with shredded chicken and prawns, complemented with fresh and juicy dragonfruit cubes

This was something new, never thought dragonfruits paired with fried rice. But it such a tiny portion and just okay.

Pho Bo, the rice noodles with slices of beef and beef brisket.

More of beef brisket. Tasted okay, as normal Pho Bo. The rice noodles were softer and shorter than normal

Our Dessert, Chilled Lemongrass Jelly served with fresh mango cubes and seasonal fruit

It took quite some time to serve us the dessert. It was a dish that I liked most
