Nam Nam at Raffles City

Slurpy goodness is what I can think of when I think of Nam Nam. And I finally got to try this last week!

Yes I know I’m really late and probably everyone out there has tried this more than once (that explains the never ending queues).. well the queue was the main reason and the other reason was that I was off grains this whole time.

So I decided to have a cheat meal and go ahead to binge with my ever accommodating hubby who is always ready and happy to see me eat. It gives him extreme joy to see me eat the stuff I shouldn’t eat.

Just last night he was hungry at 11pm and wanted to order KFC. So he was there persuading me that KFC is all meat so it’s quite paleo blah blah blah. I caved in and said okay, only to realise that KFC delivery isn’t 24 hours..

Haha so he made instant noodles and I escaped the late supper calories.

Ok back to Nam Nam. I reached at about 215pm and to my horror there was still a queue at Nam Nam!!

Since hubby wasn’t here yet I just joined the queue. And then I realised that they have quite a different system of ordering and payment. We have to take an order chit that’s located at the queue, tick what we want, pay and then we will be directed to a table.

So I was very obedient. I was looking at the menu while queueing and taking my time to order. Then suddenly I realised that the queue was gone and I was next.

A wait staff came to me and ushered me to an empty table immediately. She was very nice and she told me how to go about ordering and paying. although a bit loud and I guess everyone around me knew I was a noob; I was impressed with her helpful attitude and the fact that she was able to be flexible enough to let me in without me having to order and pay first.

Hubby came shortly and after paying, the food arrived very soon.


I must order this at every Viet eatery. Needless to say I had to eat both of these rolls coz hubby doesn’t eat salads.

I didn’t mind la.. I love these! Especially the mint leaves.


Deep fried minced pork rolls.. very good! Crispy and addictive 🙂

This came with the set lunch. Cold appetiser comprising of pork belly and salad. U don’t have to guess who ate what. Somebody didn’t even leave any pork belly for me hahah. Must be very good lor.

My mixed beef pho. Ok their soup has no MSG so knowing that, I think their soup is already quite flavourful. But I find it not thick enough – a bit more will be nicer!

Oh and I ordered an extra portion of herbs and sprouts.. yum 🙂


Hubby’s steak slice pho. The steak slices were nicely medium done.

Their few pieces of chilli in the pho did not give any spice to the soup at all so if u want more spicy soup, you gotta order an extra portion of chilli padi. They have extra portions of all kinds of things which I cannot remember haha.

My favorite was the deep fried pork rolls. I probably will go again, provided there’s no queue. I do like their service – very friendly and the cashier was also very helpful and down to earth. Not easy being a f&b staff in Singapore you know!
