Nam Nam Noodle Bar (Nam Nam) which specialises in serving Vietnamese cuisine belongs to the Les Amis Group (which includes the likes of Au Jardin, Bistro Du Vin, Canele and other restaurants). But unlike these upscale restaurants, Nam Nam offers more affordable food in a causal bistro setting targeting the mass market. Nam Nam Noodle Bar (Raffles City Shopping Centre)Nam Nam first opened at Raffles City Shopping Centre in late 2012. Within a short time span of less than a year, two other outlets have opened at Wheelock Place and Suntec City.I have frequently past by its outlet at Raffles City and wanted to try it on several occasions. However, there was always a long perceptual queue! This time, we decided to meet visit the eatery early at 1130am to beat the crowd. Banh Min counterThe Banh Min (Vietnamese bread, normally toasted baguettes) counter is located right in front of the eatery. Nam Nam's seven commandments - the Namnam-tiquette placed at the front of the eatery. On every table, there was a row of bottles of condiments. Personally, we did use any of them as the originally taste of the dishes were sufficient. Southern Roll with Sweet Shrimps, Egg, Herbs $4.90We kick started the meal with the Southern Roll with Sweet Shrimps, Egg, Herbs $4.90 was served with hoisin sauce fried with chicken liver dip. The Southern Roll were bland on its own. You would need to dip it into the sauce provided which was the game changer. The combination of the dip enhanced the flavour and would ignite your taste buds. One 'glitch' was that the rice paper used to wrap the roll was too tough. They really need to improve on this aspect as we had a hard time biting into it.Pho Beef Steak Slices $8.90The most famous Vietnamese dish is Pho which is essentially a bowl of rice noodles with herbs, spices and thinly sliced meat (normally beef or chicken) in beef stock. How could we not order Pho in a Vietnamese eatery! Pho Beef Steak Slices $8.90The Pho Beef Steak Slices $8.90 was surprisingly good. The two main factor was the beef slices and the beef stock. The beef slices were thinly sliced, slightly uncooked, and hence were so soft and tender. The beef stock was light, rich, aromatic (due to the herbs) and the flavours were so well balanced. Together with the thin and smooth rice noodles, it was a hearty comforting bowl of Pho! Yummylicious!~ Extra Toppings: Wagyu Beef $2.50Ordered an Extra Topping: Wagyu Beef $2.50. It arrived in a small bowl. The stock was similar just that it was more robust - full beefy essence! The Wagyu Beef was also thinly sliced and was pinkish as it was slightly undercooked. This would be a good choice if you are a beef fanatic. Pho Beef Balls $8.90The Pho Beef Balls $8.90 was average. Two main reasons. The beef balls were not as shiok as the beef slices in terms of flavour. In addition, the stock was not as beefy compared to the bowl of Pho Beef Steak Slices.We quite like our dining experience at Nam Nam Noodle Bar and would definitely be back for the Pho Beef Steak Slices! With more outlets, hopefully the queue will not be as long.http://foodiefc.blogspot.sg/2014/02/nam-nam-noodle-bar-raffles-city.html continue reading

$2.60 iced coffee with condensed milk: I love their coffee! It is sweet and mildly bitter and even though most of the ice has melted, the coffee still tastes good.$8.90 pho beef steak slices: Finally tried their famous pho out. The skinny kway tiao is smooth and soft while the thin beef steak slices may seem medium rare but they get completely cooked due to the being soaked inside the hot soup. The beef tastes fresh with no gamey taste and they are not tough too. The soup isn't really to my liking. As compared to the seafood soup that I had tried earlier, I'd prefer that instead.If you want to have a taste of vietnam food, try out nam nam. continue reading

Feeling hungry after church, bf and I wanted to have lunch at around City Hall area. Since I was craving for Vietnamese food, we headed to NamNam Noodle Bar. Thankfully, the long queue I used to see before was nowhere to be seen. There was only a lady in front of us, and not long after we could proceed to our seat already. Mineral WaterSpecially-designed small bottled water. Nothing special tho. Fruit Cocktail - $4.90fruit cocktail, pineapple, jackfruit, lychee, and crushed iceThe fruit-lover bf ordered this and regretted. It tasted very weird, he said. Even upon its arrival, I got no intention to try haha. Pho Beef Steak Slices - $8.90A visit to Vietnamese eatery won't be complete without a bowl of pho (Vietnamese noodle soup). At NamNam, you can have it with either rice noodle or instant noodle. I chose rice noodle, since I was thinking what's the point of having it with instant noodle (I was just too bored with instant noodle hais). The beef steak slices were served medium rare. The rice noodle was so smooth, and the broth was flavorful with herbs aromatic smell, as a result from 24 hours of boiling. Above all, the beef was the bomb! It was very tender, juicy, and generously given. Definitely worth the price.Dry Sauteed Lemongrass Pork Noodle - $9.90dry rice vermicelli with pork fillets, spring roll, shrimp paste, beansprouts, chopped herbs, and peanutsThis was bf's order. I didn't try it because it looked unappetizing haha. It made him regret for the second time. He complained it was so dry, too much taoge and tasted so weird. At the end, he didn't finish the dish, only ate the noodle lol.The price here is nett and there is no service charge (yeah!). Thus, you need to fill in the order form and bring to the cashier for payment. Then, just wait for your food to be served. Overall, I enjoyed my lunch here (not for bf certainly, haha). My only gripe is probably regarding of the place. It was so squeezy that the space from one table to another was probably just a span of hand. Nevertheless, the service was okay and food was served shortly.For more reviews, kindly visit http://ariellacahya.blogspot.com continue reading

Black coffee with banh mi must be one of the best breakfasts on a normal weekday. The thick french loaf soaked up the juicy meatball and gave it a chewy-ness which could only be found in this kind of viet style french loaf. The preserved veg gave it a refreshing lift which made it so easily to eat. What a great meal to kick start my day! continue reading
