Vietnamese Herbs

Postby aussy_ng » Fri, 07 Oct 2011 4:28 pm

Hey folks,
Anyone know where I can get some Vietnamese herbs here in Singapore? Just moved to Singapore and miss authentic home-made Vietnamese food….
Following herbs are what I’m looking for;
• Chameleon plant (Fish mint) (essential)
• Rice Patty Herb
• Vietnamese Perilla (essential)
• Wild Betal Leaf
Your help is greatly appreciated!
Vietnamese spring rolls as reward :lol:

I suggest you dine-in at Long Phung Vietnamese Restaurant on Joo Chiat Road and ask the staff where they get their fresh ingredients. :) It's supposedly the best Vietnamese restaurant in Singapore. :)

Hi Aussy_ng,
We just recently moved here from Sydney and I too missed all those Vietnamese herbs back in Sydney. We found couple of nurseries that sell herbs and got ourselves a mini herb banter including rau ram, que (Viet basil), mint.
PM me if you are interested in the nursery names.

Oh and wild betal leaf - it's growing wild here in some public places (or I think that's what it is anyway) :-)
They are growing here as ground covers.
