SERIOUS PHO

Eating at SG Pho House can be a little unnerving. The owners, Singaporean Simon Hear, 52, and his Vietnamese wife Tina, 38, hover when you peruse the menu. They hover when you slurp your food. All they really want, though, is to know if you are enjoying your meal.

There is a lot to like about what they serve in their four-month-old restaurant.

Beef bones simmered for 10 hours make a fine broth for Pho Dac Biet ($9.90), which has slices of brisket, beef balls and thin slices of beef. The noodles are thicker than I would like, but this means they stand up well to the hot broth. The bowl is steaming hot and very comforting. There are other variations of beef pho, but this one comes with a little bowl of the beef broth and an egg yolk, like in serious pho houses in Australia. The broth is the same, a hovering Mr Hear says, but it has a cleaner finish before the yolk is mixed in.

There is no way I am going to ignore blood cockles on any menu, so I also order So Huyet Xao Toi ($6.90), the shellfish fried with garlic, with pieces of lard nestled among them, and topped with a handful of rau ram, what we call laksa leaf.

These large cockles hit the spot and it is worth the trouble of shucking them. I just wish the lard was crisp. But then I might have devoured all those many pieces.

WHERE: SG Pho House, 774 North Bridge Road
