Nam Nam Noodle Bar is a newly opened Vietnamese Noodle eatery at Raffles City. We decided to try it out as we heard that it serves good pho at affordable prices. Also, it is under the same restaurant group as Canele, so it took some area of Canele's.

Other than pho, they do have other food options. They have Banh Mi which is their Vietnamese sandwich. If you're interested in choosing your own ingredients, they do have a Sandwich counter right at the entrance. Prices of Banh Mi, if I am not wrong is less than $10.

Pho beef steak slices ($8.90) suits those who are craving for some red meat. The soup without adding sauces taste stronger than Pho Chicken. My friend who ate it finds it salty enough and she did not add any sauces in her soup. I guess, i really is personal preference. Beef Slices wise, it was well-cooked, with it not being too raw nor too tough.

The down-thing on that day was that the Vietnamese Spring Roll ($4.50) was served last. I have always thought the dish to be an appetizer. The Rice Paper wrapping, I felt was a big too thick for my liking. I liked the sauce that came with the dish which was a bit like miso with lime. It went well with the Rolls.

Overall, we all felt that the price was reasonable for the quality of the food. However, we all felt hungry after eating our own bowls of noodle and ate Tiong Bahru Bakery. I guess it is not very filling because it is the noodles are light and not too starchy. Plus, there wasn't much other ingredients in the dish. I feel that it would be more worth it to dine in during lunch as they have a Special Value Set Meal (10am-3pm) at only $9.90 with Vietnamese Southern Rolls and a drink to go with your noodles. Pretty worth it!
For Casual dining, and if you're craving for some affordable pho, do make your way there!
My Rating: 6.9/10
