The more popular Long Phung Vietnamese restaurant had a queue snaking out of the entrance and onto the pavement. We didn't want to wait, as we didn't have any benchmarks or expectations for the food from Little Vietnam of Singapore So we strolled to the end of the road where there was another crowded Vietnamese eatery with still.a couple free seats.
The Man wasn't familiar with th cuisine so I kinda made up his choice. His: bun thit or rice noodles with grilled pork.
It looks very plain and I expected more pork. Tossing the noodles with the fish sauce revealed lots of crunchy bean sprouts and herbs beneath so it was really not bad.
Mine: sour seafood soup with some strange spongy vegetables (maybe banana stem? Or some sort of gourd). It was OK. I love that they were generous with the mint and bean sprouts as the soup was rather sweet and sour so it could be quite heavy after a while.
We also ordered fresh rolls to share. Nothing unusual but very competent, fresh ingredients and soft skins. The dipping sauce was also very yummy. Just $5 for this plate. Far cry from the $11.90 from Erap and Roll.
