vietnamese stuff  
i hadn't had much viet food in singapore. perhaps i'm hanging on to my memories of mekong in melbourne, of my favourite 5 dollar noodles with raw beef slices in steaming hot, msg-laden broth.

but i guess i should really give viet food in singapore a go.

the rolls were quite yummy... not as good as mekong but not too bad. i must remember not to compare because melbourne has such a strong vietnamese community and loads more authenticity. the noodles were... ok. i didn't finish it because i wasn't very hungry. but then, if i was eating at mekong and i wasn't very hungry, i'd finish an entire bowl of noodles anyway. such is the power of good pho on me. :P

so, yeh.

can someone bring mekong to singapore? please?

I know what u mean!
My fren brought me to eat viet pho at sydney when i just touched down(many years back) and it was really good.

Till now, I still think nothing compares to that place. So good that I went twice that trip!

I just ate at Mekong yesterday. And it's no longer $5 for a small bowl, it's $6.50 now. =(

I thought Singapore had a Mekong Restaurant in Holland V? Or maybe it has closed down. Haven't been back for almost 2 years.

The last time I went back, I saw a restaurant called Mekong just a fwe stores next to Coffee Bean. I dunno if it's the same as the one in Melbourne. But one thing's for sure, the one in Singapore doesn't look as dodgy as the one in Melbourne.

low class and aesthetically lacking as melb mekong looks, i still love it! :)

will check out hv mekong (if it's still there) and report findings...
