Viet Inn, Circular Road


hu tieu mi

goi cuon

The recent streak of craving for soup noodles led us down to Viet Inn (49 Circular Road, tel : +65 6536 1847) which apparently has been operating for a number of years. There was a relatively enjoyable pho bo that would have been more enjoyable if it had a beefier tasting broth and a specialty call hu tieu mi - a prawn and sliced pork noodle that featured thin and chewy egg noodles that reminded me of those from wanton mee. The texture of those egg noodles was unfortunately not as Q as I had imagined. The broth of hu tieu mi was pretty tasty but I was unable to identify what made it so besides the pork and fried shallots. Maybe it was just MSG.

We found the goi cuon to be pretty good. Those rolls were loaded with ingredients and the accompanying bean dip with crushed peanuts helped make these fat rolls more tasty.
