When I am in Vivo City and I want something quick, I always think about this place, the small Banh Mi shop. Located near the Toys R Us side, it is next to the future home of Jamie Oliver’s first restaurant in Singapore.
It’s a pretty small outlet, a few seats, but it pumps out some decent stuff.
They have about five selections of Banh Mi, and about four-five noodle/rice dishes, so the menu is small. They have a set meal kind of thing. You choose your main of a Banh Mi or Noodle/Rice dish, then you can add on a side of either Summer Roll, Cake, Sushi Roll (yea, it’s strange) or something called Chicken or Pork in a cup. Then you add on a drink, a regular tea (iced or hot) or soft drink is less than if you added on a Vietnam Coffee (hot or cold).
So I went with a set for lunch. The Iced Viet Coffee was on my list. Nice and sweet, cooling, I really do like Viet coffee, but it will put a charge in you.
I always have a summer roll. I don’t even want to come near the sushi roll thing they have, and I don’t want cake. But I did want to test out the Chicken in a Cup this time. It was interesting for sure. It basically is the filling for a Banh Mi without the bread. There is a lot of meat in this little cup! It’s usually $3.50 a la carte, so it’s quite a deal.
And then I went with the Pork Meatball Banh Mi. There are only two meatballs on this thing, cut in half. Not enough meat, so I added the chicken meat above to the Banh Mi and ate it. Taste is good, just wish there was more meatball.
