Hi there

I guess many people know there is a Little Vietnam at Joo Chiat by now. 🙂 And when there is a Little Vietnam, you are bound to find a few gems there. 🙂

My colleagues have long been asking me to go with them to Long Phung Vietnamese Food at Joo Chiat, as it is good, cheap and authentic – what’s not to love right? 🙂

Reaching there at 630pm was a good choice, the crowd has yet to set in as I heard this place is bumping with locals and vietnamese working along that area.

This place just look like any other coffee shop or small restaurant, a little run down but I am there for the food, so no biggie for me. 🙂

Long Phung’s menu is fairly simple with pictures and the occasional funny spelling that you will find yourself giggling after reading it. Prices ranges from $5 – $12 for the dishes. For full listing of the menu, check out at the bottom of this post. 🙂

As a starter, you can never go wrong with Vietnamese spring roll ($6) . At Long Phung Vietnamese Restaurant, they serve these freshly rice paper roll with a potent dipping sauce that is filled with chillis, crushed peanuts and pickles.

The rolls are fresh and tightly packed with rice noodles, lettuce and prawns, so you do not end up with a messy plate, and the sauce mixed with the pickles compliment to the plain yet fresh rolls.

Next is the mango salad ($6) , it is different from the Thai version that I use to eat, which is usually come with plain mangoes. Here you get sliced boiled pork with prawns, and generous amounts of fresh herbs. The tangy & sweetness tantalize every taste buds among us. I was even dipping the fresh spring roll into the balance sauce, so appetizing!Love this.

Next partner up with the fresh spring rolls ($6) , will be the deep fried version, which is filled with yams, mushrooms, the deep fried vietnamese skin is not the same kind they use for the fresh roll, it is the netted kind, where you can sometimes find at Zi Char place for prawn rolls.

Dipped into the tangy chilli sauce, the sweet & sour combination instantly rid off any greasy after flavor of it.

As for the sides, we also ordered the popular Fried chicken wings with fish sauce ($8). Golden chicken wings with freshly fried crispy skin. I personally find this dish just okay as I could not taste the fish sauce, but it was perfectly fried with a slight hint of savoriness, and serve piping hot, I have no complains. Great pairing with beer for sure.

And then comes the Star of the Vietnamese celebration. The long waited Rare beef rice noodles, at just $5.50, it comes in a very good portion, just nice for one, so that you can enjoy other dishes.

Generous amount of herbs and tender beef slices. Slight rare, when it simmered further in the hot soup, the tenderness just get even better.

It is truly like a rustic authentic Vietnamese beef noodles, the soup has this hint of sweetness which is more distinct than other places I have tried, but if you add dashes of fresh lime which is available on the table with some chopped chillis. The sweetness will dissipate and you end up with a very wholesome flavorful broth, perfect harmony in every mouthful.

The silky soft rice noodles, with crunchy bean sprouts, paired with the freshness of the herb and the tender beef slices all at $5.50, I would say is a rare find. One thing though, we did experience thirst after we went home and did down a lot of water, so I guess that is probably one of the reason why it tasted so good.

Over here you cannot find any dessert menu but end it with a sweet aromatic ice vietnamese coffee ($2.50), is probably all it takes to round up the meal. 🙂
