Opened along with the revamped Simpang Bedok Market Place in December 2014, Huong Que Vietnamese Cuisine offers traditional, rustic Vietnamese food, made with family recipes passed down to the owners, Singaporean Mr. Leo Ng and his Vietnamese wife Ms. Vu Thi Hai. While the menu is small, the quality of dishes at Huong Que Vietnamese Cuisine is consistently good, with several items made from scratch, and prepared only upon order.Ambience at Huong Que Vietnamese Cuisine is similar to the rest of t
Ambience at Huong Que Vietnamese Cuisine is similar to the rest of the stalls here, on account of the shared casual seating, and clean, bright atmosphere. The stall owners have put effort into some decor, with the traditional, iconic, Vietnamese palm leaf conical hat doubling as lamps / lanterns. The range of sauce bottles on display, along with a rustic design for the stall, also lends a 'local street side stall' feel. Service at Huong Que Vietnamese Cuisine is completely self-service, with ordering, payment, and collection of orders done over the counter. At least the owners are friendly and cheerful, and they provide you a buzzer, which alerts you when your order is ready. Order fulfillment can take up to 15 minutes though, this is because they prepare several items only upon order, fresh from stratch. Personally, I don't mind a short wait for better quality dishes!
Food at Huong Que Vietnamese Cuisine is naturally, Vietnamese cuisine. Made to order, according to authentic, traditional family recipes of the owners, the food is simple and rustic, but tasty, nutritious, and filling. Love how fresh the dishes are, especially topped with a generous portion of vegetables! Portion sizes are designed for individuals, and prices are cheap / very affordable, similar to a prices at a food court / hawker stall. Budget around SGD $6 per person for a meal here.
The Pho Bo (SGD $5.50), or Vietnamese Beef Noodles, has a thin yet intensely flavoured beefy soup / broth. The thin, flat rice vermicelli noodles are silky smooth in texture, and the thinly sliced beef flank, is savoury and tender. I particularly like the hand made beef balls, which have a strong beef meat flavour. However, I did feel that it's lacking in vegetables as compared to other versions, as they noticeably do not have bean sprouts. Also, they lack the variety of cuts of beef. Seems like it takes after the North Vietnam style. Still, it's an above average dish worth ordering.
