After attending church service at The Star Vista on Sunday, we looked around for a spot for lunch and were attracted by the big sign that stated "The Royal Beef Noodle Soup". Yes, key words like "beef soup" do attract me....easily. Moohehe.
The Hue Beef Noodle Soup ($14.90) was interesting. The broth was light, tasty and quite refined. There seemed to be a bit of turmeric too. Instead of just beef, there was a pig's trotter in here too! I mooch enjoyed the slices of beef shank for their deep beefy flavour.
Minced Pork & Mushrooms in Steamed Rice Paper Rolls ($8.90) were delicious! Chewy sheets of steamed rice paper enveloped a tasty filling of minced pork, mushrooms and black ear fungus. The sprinkling of fried shallots and pork floss added texture and additional flavours. Dip into the tangy sauce for oomph. Vietnamese chee cheong fun anyone? :p
The Grilled Pork Chop Rice with Salted Egg Pudding ($12.90) appealed in a funny Cantonese way. The pork chop was nothing exciting but the salted egg pudding reminded me of the classic steamed minced pork and salted egg dish that is so comforting.
