I have enjoyed Pho-losophy, which is a bit out of the way at Asia Square (if it's even open!)

I second Long Phung, it is one of the most authentic Vietnamese on the island.

In a pinch, if you want something more convenient, you can try Nam Nam which has some ok dishes, but manage your expectations.

It is ironic that you can find better and more authentic Vietnamese in the USA. Same goes for dim sum, at least the ones I’ve been to in Chicago/LA/SF can beat most dim sum here!

Long Phung, be prepared to Q and wait.

Dim sum, being Cantonese, is best eaten at HK eateries such as Imperial Treasure. I like the Orchard ION outlet best.

When I went to Long Phung (pre-Covid), I went on the weekend but always arrived early, around 5-5:30pm to beat the queue... by 6pm at least a dozen ppl outside waiting for a table.
