Pho Stop.

A stop for Vietnamese cuisine, which would otherwise be quite hidden if not for the loyal crowd from the working adults around the area at Tanjong Pagar. Pho Stop, as the name suggests, specializes in Pho (pronounced as ‘fuh‘). Pho, a Vietnamese Rice Noodle Soup, is commonly seen served with beef and chicken. In this establishment, about three-quarter of its mains are served with the former. I am not one who frequents Vietnamese Restaurants, but I find this decent, though not to scream for.

It’s challenging to get seats for lunch on a weekday, also thanks to their limited seating space (it can probably only house less than 50 diners at one go). I was there for a weekday dinner, much much better. Quiet, serene, and relatively secluded. And it gives me more time to look around and have fun with their colorful chopsticks.

Vietnamese Drip Coffee :: $3.50++

Vietnamese Drip Coffee (White) ($3.50++) :: I was intrigued by it being a Drip Coffee. It was my maiden Drip Coffee. Not only is its mechanics (or the lack thereof) interesting to look at, it is meant to taste better as well. As water seeps through the roasted, ground coffee bean in a filter, it absorbs its oils and essences, making it more flavorful. Give it 3 – 5 minutes and you’re good to go indulge in it. One of the best coffees I’ve had.

Fish Cakes :: $6.60++

Fish Cakes ($6.60++) :: We were contemplating whether to have the Fries or the Fish Cakes for starters, and decided on the latter in hope to taste something more unique. However, it was a pure let down. There was nothing special about it, and whatever its marination and flavor were meant to exude, failed. Plus, it’s pricey. If given another chance, I’d rather try their Fries.

Dry Noodles with Pork Chop :: $9.20++

Dry Noodles with Pork Chop ($9.20++) :: It was nothing spectacular, nothing poor. I like that the noodles were soft but quantifiable. The pork chop, however, was forgettable.

In a nutshell, Pho Stop is a restaurant I wouldn’t fiercely recommend, but if I’m in the area and lost for places to eat, I wouldn’t mind stepping in again.
