Being more than just a national dish and a bowl of noodle soup, Pho carries the tradition and history of Vietnam since the 19th century. Pho has since gone through a series of modification as the years go by, but it remains a well-loved dish by many.
Amongst the many food options in Somerset, we spotted this Que in TripleOne Somerset that serves Pho, Banh Mi, Bun Cha and other Vietnamese dishes. The menu is relatively affordable with nothing over S$10.90.
Aside from the usual chains you see in town, maybe this could be a new choice for you to savour!
Originally known as the Public Utilities Board Building, TripleOne Somerset has undergone several facelifts over the years. Located at the quieter area of Orchard Road, off the main shopping street, it is now operating as a commercial building as well as a shopping mall.
The latest revamp of the TripleOne Somerset sees several new F&B tenants that are exclusive to the mall. Check out our TripleOne Somerset Food Directory to get an overview of what you can expect when the mall fully opens.
Hong Kong’s famous Cookie Shop, Mr Rich Bakery, is in the process of opening its first shop in Singapore. Following Jenny Bakery’s opening back in October 2015, Mr Rich Bakery is the next cookie shop from Hong Kong that is going to conquer Singapore’s market.
We spoke with Asia Food Mart – the official distributor of Mr Rich Bakery’s cookies in Singapore – to find out more.
Previously from Wasabi Tei, Mitsuba and Chikuwa Tei, Chef Peter Teo is no stranger in the local food scene. Despite his notorious reputation as a food nazi, he has always been known for serving excellent Japanese food.
Kaiware Japanese Restaurant at TripleOne Somerset is his latest venture. It offers a range of Teishoku (S$24 – S$32), Nabe (S$22 – S$35), Sashimi (S$30 onwards), as well as a pretty affordable 8-course Omakase set (S$58++/pax), but the only reason why we made a trip down was to try his famous Chirashi-don.
It has been four years since we wrote our guide on restaurants in Orchard Road and though we update them from time to time, we thought it is high time to re-curate and to introduce a new guide, featuring even more dining places in Singapore’s most famous shopping street.
Options are aplenty and no doubt we are all spoilt for choice, but are they really worth their queues/ price tags/ waiting time? We have friends from overseas who visit Singapore and have limited time on our sunny island, and then we have our locals who do not want to waste their calories unnecessarily.
The next time you head to Orchard Road, you need not face the risk of stepping in to a random diner and not knowing what to expect.
