If you’re looking for food options in Orchard Road, make your way to this casual Vietnamese eatery that serves healthy, delicious pho.
I do not remember the last time I stepped into Midpoint Orchard, that building beside a Courts store and opposite 313@Somerset.
But I recall eating at its foodcourt years ago and the basement still has a decent selection of affordable food options.
Amid the usual choices of economy rice and nasi lemak, there is a hidden gem called Signs A Taste Of Vietnam Pho.
The six-month-old eatery is run by a deaf couple – Singaporean Anthony Teo, 53, and his Vietnamese wife Angela Thach, 34 – and the simple menu includes pho, fresh spring rolls and smoothies.
Pick from sliced beef ribeye, sliced beef shin or beef balls to go with the pho, which comes with beansprouts and herbs. Each option is $6. Or go for the beef feast combo ($8), which includes all three options.
The soup, though light, is fragrant and tasty. It comes with a lime wedge, so squeeze the juice in for extra flavour.
