Pho 99 at Amoy Street

Vietnamese beef noodles (pho)
My friend Eri suggested a nice place for dinner over the weekend. We both love Vietnamese food, and prefer casual dining places to chitchat in, so Pho 99 hit the mark well. The pho (beef noodle soup with beef slices and meatballs, S$9 nett) is decently comforting. It comes with a small handful of basil and sawtooth coriander, a lime wedge and sliced chili padi. Among the condiments in the bottles on the table is a surprisingly tasty dried ground chili in oil - it adds fiery oomph to the gentle-tasting broth.

Spring roll platter - goi cuon and cha gio
We also shared the spring roll platter (S$7 nett) which comes with both goi cuon (shrimp fresh rice paper roll) and cha gio (deep-fried minced pork rolls, I think there's yam in this version). Man, I could eat a bazillion of these. I love spring rolls!

Iced sour plum drink
Wash it all down with an ice-cold sour plum drink (S$2.50 nett). There's Trung Nguyen Vietnamese drip coffee here too.

Pho 99 has been at Amoy Street for quite a few years
It's a really small and simple place, and the food is pretty home-style. The owners are Vietnamese, and the shop has been around for at least 4-5 years. Look for it opposite the Amoy Street Food Centre. I'll certainly be back to try the other dishes. And yes, prices are nett because there is no GST or service charge!

  1. If you win the trip to Melbourne, try the Pho over's just not the same as the ones in Singapore, despite using similar ingredients

  4. Came by your blog searching for reviews on the SFF and saw this post. Coming from Melbourne, I had some great pho, so I'm keen to find a good place here. The spring roll platter looks soooo yummy! Can't wait to try it out. :)

  5. Nothing like a good bowl of pho - it's heartwarming, comfort food.
