  • Long Phung is the most popular Vietnamese restaurant among many along Joo Chiat Road. It attracts not only Vietnamese and Singaporeans but also American and Australian ex-pats living in Singapore.


    • Vietnamese-style seafood to pair with beer:  Seafood and beer are some of the most popular items found in eateries along Saigon’s streets in Vietnam. In Singapore’s food scene, the best Vietnamese-style seafood menu can be found at Long Phung. Cockles, gong gong, scallops, and clams are prepared in various ways to pair perfectly with beer. It is recommended to eat them hot to enjoy their flavors at their best, and don’t forget to dip them in the condiment made of salt, pepper, chili, and lime for a heavenly taste.
    • Good beef pho:  If you prefer tender beef, you can enjoy the pho tai (rare beef noodles). For those who love variety, the pho dac biet (combination beef noodles) is an ideal choice. For food connoisseurs, the key to Vietnamese noodle soup is in the broth. At Long Phung, the broth soup is fragrant, flavorful, and slightly sweet, perfectly complementing the smooth rice noodles, tender beef, raw egg, and bean sprouts.
    • The best smoothies: Mango, avocado, jackfruit, and durian smoothies – all of them are excellent at Long Phung. Their smoothies are delicious because they use fresh fruit as the main ingredient, which makes up a large proportion of the drink.

    MENU: A decent-sized menu is offered at Long Phung, with around 30 dishes of noodles, soups, and rice making up half of the menu, and the other half featuring typical Vietnamese appetizers and side dishes like spring rolls, papaya salad, and cockles.

    ATMOSPHERE: Long Phung boasts a simple interior reminiscent of a typical roadside eatery in Saigon, with a cramped setting that often sees the restaurant packed to capacity during peak times. You can expect to queue up for a table during busy hours.

  • If you’re in the mood for some Vietnamese food but don’t want to take the usual Pho route, try Làng Nướng Việt Nam. It’s the pioneer of Vietnamese barbeque in Singapore, which is similar to Korean barbeque but also a little different.

    The marination, which uses traditional Vietnamese ingredients like fish sauce, lemongrass, and charcoal for heat, sets Vietnamese barbeque apart. Làng Nướng Việt Nam offers a wide range of barbeque dishes that are sure to be a ride for the taste buds.


    • An extensive menu with classic and newly-created Vietnamese street food: The restaurant’s vast menu has a lot to offer, from Vietnamese classic street food like pho, soup noodles, dry noodles, and BBQ pork chop rice to the new creations that come to Vietnamese food scene recently like grill whole chicken with chili salt, salted whole chicken, sauteed squid teeth with butter, and half done shrimp with That sauce. Rare-to-find dishes like crispy pig intestine is also available.
    • Authentic Saigon-style barbeque packed full of flavor: Làng Nướng Việt Nam can transport you to Saigon with its authentic atmosphere and delicious barbeque. The meat is cooked over clay pots with charcoal, giving it a distinctive smoky flavor that can’t be replicated by fancy table gas grills. You can choose from a variety of meats (beef, pork, chicken), seafood (prawns, squids, octopus, scallops, fish), vegetables, mushrooms, and more to make your own BBQ feast.
