Hello Foodie Friends! When it comes to Vietnamese food in Singapore, we might think spring rolls, banh mi and beef pho are all there is to it. But a meal at Uncle Ho Tuck Shop just might make us think again. Cheekily named after Vietnamese revolutionary Ho Chi Minh, this casual self-service eatery was recommended by my Makan Kaki, award-winning cookbook author and founder-owner of Shermay’s Singapore Fine Food, Shermay Lee.
Quite the go-to workday lunch place for West Coast office workers, Uncle Ho Tuckshop also comes with the perks of free Wi-Fi, air-conditioning, and tonnes of natural light flooding in from their large windows. But don’t expect the usual menu items – they serve predominantly Northern Vietnamese cuisine, with a focus on dishes from Hanoi.
What’s the difference between North and South Vietnamese cuisine, though? Click the links below to find out:
