In India? No idea what a yemmy breakfast is, presumably something that tedious spammers eat.

And I forgot 1 place: Pullman Bakery at Millenia Walk, near Subway.


This one looked fairly new. It's in Wheelock on level B2. Can't miss it, right next to the escalator.

And I have it on good authority only one person working there is genuinely Vietnamese :D


There is one Vietnamese place at 313@Somerset on the top floor's food court. Had pho and goi cuon there, which were pretty good actually, although the price is a little bit more expensive compared to the cheapo pseudo-Vietnamese fare you will find in coffee shops and chain food courts.

And don't go to Pho Hoa at Holland Village, never in my life I felt so cheated.

I will definitely try Nam Nam when I have the chance.

Pho Hoa is a world-wide chain. It was one of the few places open past midnight every day when I lived in Mountain View, CA. Ate there a lot :D

Apart from the price and the contents, well, you got a point. I was expecting more meats, but well . . .

Then it is too bad for a world-wide chain.

My first (and the last) time I was there, the pho wasn't really up to the mark and the goi cuon was to cry over. Terribly small and definitely lack the full range of ingredients that original goi cuon should have -- AND THEY DO NOT HAVE NUOC MAM! What kind of Vietnamese restaurant that doesn't have nuoc mam?! (The premium 'Holland Village' price didn't even justify that)

:x :mad:

I haven't, but I will give them a shot. This is the place across from Starbucks/next to the coffeeshop, right?

For the last couple months, we've been going to The Bread Project on Joo Chiat about every other week. Though living down the road from an artisan baker in the UK spoiled us, we're pretty happy with the breads there.

[edit] stopped by the german place today in siglap for bread (also had a pretty decent breakfast), and my wife has found her new favourite place to buy real bread...so thanks for the recommendation.
