There is a decent sized menu offered at Long Phung. 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.
