Vietnamese-style seafood to pair with beer: Seafood and beer are some of the most popular things could be found in eateries along Saigon’s streets in Vietnam. And when it comes to Singapore food scene, we can find the best Vietnamese-style seafood menu at Long Phung. Cockles, gong gong and clams are prepared in various ways to pair with beer. Eat hot to taste them best, and don’t forget to dip them into the condiment made of salt, pepper, chili and lime to feel heavenly.
The best smoothies: Mango, avocado, jackfruit and durian smoothies, they all are excellent. A Long Phung’s smoothie glass is delicious because the fresh fruit makes up a large proportion of the ingredients.
Good beef pho: If you prefer tender beef, enjoy pho tai (rare beef noddles). For those who love variety, pho dac biet (combination beef noddles) is an ideal choice. To food connoisseurs, the key to the Vietnamese noodle soup is in the broth. Certainly, you can find that Long Phung’s broth soup is fragrant, flavourful and slightly sweet along with the smooth rice noodles, tender beef, raw egg and bean sprout.

Half of the menu is made up by around 30 dishes of noodles soups and rice and the other offers Vietnamese usual appetizers and side dishes such as spring roll, papaya salad, and cockles. Drink menu is simple, featuring Vietnamese-style coffee and smoothies.
Prices are very reasonable. A generous bowl of pho dac biet (combination beef noddles) is priced at S$6.50. Other pho options and noodles soups are charged at S$5.50. A meal with a main course, a drink, and a share-out of appetizers and side dishes costs around S$13.
Located at 159 Joo Chiat Road, this restaurant is not easily accessible by MRT or bus. It is hard to get a parking slot as well. Therefore, the best way to get there is sharing a cab with a group of friends.
Like a typical roadside eatery in Saigon, Long Phung features a simple interior with cramped setting. The place is often packed out, so there is always a queue in front of the restaurant during peak times. A number of nearby KTV lounges and bars along the Joo Chiat Road add more sounds and colours to the lively atmosphere of this place.
